While battling an alien creature called the Nok, the Flash is hurled across the vibrational barrier to emerge on a new world: Earth Prime! On this earth there are no super-heroes, but their exploits are published in comic book magazines, in much the same way that the Earth-2 heroes appear as fictional characters in the comics of Earth-1. To get back home, Flash enlists the help of the only Earth-Prime resident who will believe his story: Julie Schwartz, the editor of DC Comics.
