    Carmine Infantino Flash Comics #112 Unpublished Story Page 3 Thinker Original Art (DC, 1949). A Flash page with a story and a hidden secret! Flash Comics was canceled with issue #104 being the last published in February of 1949. This page was intended for issue #112 in October, 1949. They were working ahead at least eight months! Officially written-off in September of that year (by the stamp in the lower margin), it was eventually ordered destroyed. The story has it that enterprising staffers cut this (and many other "dead" stories) into strips between the tiers and tossed them out... only to return and retrieve them from the trash later! The hidden secret is that there are three pure-graphite figures on the backside of a Western character (see for images). The front is produced twice-up scale in ink over graphite on three sections of conjoined Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". Joined on the backside with tape. Light toning on the front. Signed by Infantino in the lower margin and in overall Excellent condition. From the Ethan Roberts Estate Collection.
