As you can tell I like The Flash.
My memory is going, but one of the very first comic books that I ever got was this Brave & the Bold. It had Jim Aparo doing the art. Loved the scene where The Flash while carrying Batman vibrates through a wall to get into the disco club.
Crisis on Infinite Earths was just great for a geek like me. It had every superhero that loved in it! I was huge DC fan. And what made this even better was it had my favourite artist doing the pencils, George Perez. To this day still love his work. I remember buying this book on the newsstand. With the newsstand you had no clue to what was going to happen with the next issue. So when each issue came out I was in a huge shock just by looking at the cover. So when issue 8 came out, I did not know what to do. In the previous issue they had just killed off Supergirl. Who cares, it was Supergirl. Issue 8’s cover need no explaining, I knew what was coming at the end of the issue. It was a great story. Great way for a hero to die.
The Flash comic book, written by Cary Bates and pencilled by Carmine Infantino. There was a love and hate relationship at this time with Infantino’s artwork. I did not hate it, yet there was something to it. Those square jaws and wavy hair on everyone. Took me years to realize that he was a very gifted artist (same way people see Picasso when he started doing cubism). Jack Kirby is another one (this is a story for another time). Now I tend to look at his early Flash stories for inspiration.
By the way, when I mean The Flash I mean Barry Allen.
So far love the TV show.
