The Flash has weird thoughts.

I love the cover to Flash #133 (1962). Flash thinks, "I got the strangest feeling I'm being turned into a puppet."


What exactly does that feel like? I had to emphasize how silly it is by creating my own version. He still thinks it, but he's wrong. What a goofball!


Check it out
on Coveredblog.blogspot.com. Look at more covers while you're there. It's a great site.

GREAT COVERED COVER!!

I'd always thought that the original cover would have been more effective if the Flash had a big hand up his ass (and, in a way, it would be a nod towards John Wesley Shipp)

Maybe I should have done that. (Judging by some of the responses on Covered Blog...)

I have to say, the Flash is the only superhero for which I can think of no situation I would say "Thank goodness the Flash is here!"

The only superhero? Somewhere, Aquaman is smiling.

Well, if I was drowning in the ocean, Aquaman could get a dolphin or whale to rescue me. I would be able to say, "Thank you Aquaman, if you weren't here, I would have drowned!"

But as for the Flash... I cannot honestly think of a single situation where that would be my response. Sorry, Flash old buddy...
