The Flash TV Special Cover by Williams & Robinson

September 12, 2023|In General

The 1990 Flash TV series only lasted one season, but it’s well remembered. Star John Wesley Shipp joined the cast of the more-recent series as Jay Garrick and two other characters. Guessing he was good to work with.

DC published one tie-in in 1991, sporting a photo cover of Shipp dressed as Barry Allen and The Flash. They had also considered running an illustrated cover by David A Williams and Gary Robinson but it went unpublished. So let’s see how it might have looked on the newsstands.
