    Description

    Ross Andru and Mike Esposito Flash #179 Title Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1968). This issue had a lot going for it. It sported a "cover-within-a-cover" motif, a gag so good they repeated it on this splash page but used an actual cover (from Flash #172). It also introduced a key element of Silver/Bronze Age DC... Earth Prime! Editor Julius Schwartz plays a key role in this issue. Earth Prime would also factor into an Cary Bates and Elliot S. Maggin JLA story, and would be the birthplace of Superboy-Prime (of 52 fame). A wonderful piece of Silver Age history, this title page is produced in ink over graphite, on Bristol board, with an image area of 10" x 15" (including indicia). Slight tanning (more so in the paste-up indicia), and production hole punches in the top and bottom margin. Otherwise in Very Good condition. Comes with a copy of the printed issue.
