The Flash #105 vs. the Flash #105: Separated at Birth?

Posted on: October 10, 2009

So, this is old as all get out and prooobably something you’ve already noticed and/or known about forever (especially if your name happens to be Kelson) but I don’t care. I just noticed this and it made me way, way happier than it probably should have.

First, we have the cover to John Broome’s the Flash Vol. 1 #105 from March 1959, Barry Allen’s first ever solo title and the the first appearance of Sam Scudder as the Mirror Master (which I will totally one day actually own).

All right, now let’s take a look at the cover to Mark Waid and Michael Jan Friedman’s the Flash Vol. 2 #105 from September 1995, in which Wally West helps out, gets tricked by, and fights second Mirror Master, Evan McCulloch.

Oh, man. That’s one of the funniest tributes to a past cover I’ve ever seen. Awesome!

Flash #105 (from Barry’s series) can be found (in color) in The Flash Chronicles vol. 1 which is a softcover book. Should cost you $20 or less.

Thanks for the tip! I think he wants the issue though. We’re not big collectors of old issues (too damned expensive), but we’ve all got a handful we’d love to own. 🙂
