13 COVERS: NEAL ADAMS Takes on THE FLASH

Comics’ greatest artist and a hero he rarely drew…

We’ve had the Flash on the brain a lot lately, which makes sense since The Flash #750 is out March 4 and we just got our hands on The Flash #123 Facsimile Edition. (Don’t forget there’s also the just-released The Flash of Two Worlds Deluxe Edition hardcover too.)

Anyway, I was hankering to do a 13 COVERS saluting the Flash. It would have been easy to go down the Infantino route, but I’ve done that plenty of times. (Click here.)

So why not zig instead of zag and pair comics’ greatest artist with a character for which he’s not really known. The one and only Neal Adams did his share of covers featuring the Scarlet Speedster in the Silver and Bronze Ages, and so dig this groovy selection:

  1. Interesting that only two of these covers has Flash running or using his super speed.

    Still gorgeous covers.

  2. The Flash has always been my favorite. Neal Adams has always been one of my favorites. Despite the beautiful covers (And I love Flash 203), there really isn’t an iconic Neal Adams Flash cover- probably the lack of angst in the core of the character.

  3. I remember having several of those issues. I always thought that it was strange that Superman was shown flying in that race against the Flash who was of course running. It made me think that Superman must have thought he needed the advantage of better aerodynamics and less friction to give him an edge against the Scarlet Speedster.
