For clean simplicity, it’d be difficult to find somebody more skilled than Carmine Infantino. His open lines, expansive vistas and idiosyncratic figures often combined for concept pieces that were immediately readable from a distance, and which drew a prospective buyer in to purchase the magazine. This cover to FLASH #153 is a case in point. It’s a rare DC cover of the era on which the hero has the upper hand. And what a hand–who wouldn’t want to read a comic book in which the good guy punched the bad guy five-hundred years into the future?
