About this product
- Description* Introduced in 1940, The Flash burst onto the comic book scene with an explosive debut akin to his super-speed powers. He was an instant smash-hit success, as the lightning bolt insignia upon his chest became synymous with the term superhero . Even as seven decades have passed, The Flash is still a vibrant part of the DC Comics lore and an integral part of the genre. *The Flash: A Celebration of 75 Years collects a wide range of stories featuring the Scarlet Speedster, ranging his seven decades as a mainstay in the DC Comics universe. From the original Flash, Jay Garrick, to his successors Barry Allen and Wally West, the mantle of this beloved hero has made him burst beyond the printed page into a pop culture symbol. This anthology graphic vel collects stories from the industry's legendary talents, including Gardner Fox, John Broome, and Geoff Johns.
- Author BiographyBorn in 1911 in Brooklyn, New York, Gardner Fox was probably the single most imaginative and productive writer in the Golden Age of comics. In the 1940s, he created or co-created dozens of long-running features for DC Comics, including the Flash, Hawkman, the Sandman, and Doctor Fate, as well as penning most of the adventures of comics first super-team, the <i>Justice Society of America</i>. He was also the second person to script Batman, beginning somewhere around the Dark Knight Detective s third story. For other companies over the years Fox also wrote <i>Skyman, the Face, Jet Powers, Dr. Strange, Doc Savage</i> and many others including <i>Crom the Barbarian</i>, the first sword-and-sorcery series in comics. Following the revival in the late 1950s of the super-hero genre, Fox assembled Earth s Mightiest Heroes once more and scripted an unbroken 65-issue run of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. Though he produced thousands of other scripts and wrote over 100 books, it is perhaps this body of work for which he is best known. Fox passed away in 1986.
