    Description

    Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella - The Flash #139, pages 1-7 Original Art (DC, 1963). Professor Zoom, the Reverse-Flash from the 25th Century, made his debut in this romp. The splash page kicked the "Menace of the Reverse-Flash" off in grand style, as the two Flashes raced through a futuristic cityscape. Carmine Infantino's sleek, streamlined stylings were the perfect fit for the Silver Age Flash; Infantino's talent revitalized the entire superhero genre. The opening pages of this yarn showcased scenes of a time capsule satellite, Barry Allen dining with his girl, Iris West, the Flash costume-ring in action, and the Flash sprinting on his cosmic-powered treadmill. The image area of the first six pages of the thriller measure 13" x 18". Page seven is a two-thirds page with the bottom of the paper left blank where a house ad was to appear, and it has an image area of 13" x 11.5". Aside from moisture damage to the lower right area (with page seven being the most affected of the pages), causing a slight rippling to the paper, the art is in Very Good condition. This is a superb group for a Silver Age Flash fan!
