The Flash covers by Brian Bolland

flashtpb1 - return

In releasing those DC Comics wallpapers for the Sony & Amazon readers, I realized that I had these great Flash cover scans by Brian Bolland.  I had saved the versions sans any cover copy and I think they all look spectacular.  The one above is Bolland’s re-take on the classic Showcase #4 cover, the first appearance of the Silver Age Flash.  This cover was on the The Return of Barry Allen trade paperback.


Flash 177 from 2008 asked the question, Can Even the Flash Outrun a Black Hole?  This concept just gave Bolland a license to do his trippy magic here.  The design is just great, with the black and white background making the Flash pop out even more in the foreground.


Flash 178 featured the return of Gorilla Grodd, who mounted an amazing attack on the Flash in his own city.


Flash 186 featured Bolland’s re-take on the classic statue The Thinker by Rodin, while The Rogues look on in terror as he merges his super-fast mind with an artificial intelligence to save Keystone and Central City.

There are many more Bolland Flash covers, which ones are your favorites?  Nuff Said!
