Great Covers

This Murphy Anderson FLASH cover is another example of a technique that editor Julie Schwartz used on numerous occasions: a cover on which a character engaged the prospective reader directly. This iteration adds the additional wrinkle of the Flash’s fate being too gruesome to be outwardly depicted–who could resist cracking the cover to see what had taken place?

Unless I’m misremembering, this was also the first FLASH issue read by future DC mainstay Geoff Johns.
