Ethan Rhys Helbing is a writer on Earth-1.


At some point (presumably after 1989), Ethan Rhys Helbing wrote a children's book titled The Runaway Dinosaur.

In the 1990s, Helbing's book became Barry Allen's childhood favorite and was read to him by his mother, Nora Allen.

After getting lost in the Speed Force, Barry experienced his old memories of Nora reading Helbing's The Runaway Dinosaur to him before managing to return to his universe.[1]
