A Year of Cool Comics – Day 132

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today we take a look at an acclaimed one-off issue of Flash by Williams Messner-Loebs and Greg LaRocque – “Freefall”!

Enjoy!

The issue, Flash #54, opens with Wally taking down a generic looking supervillain…




Two important bits set up here – 1. “Nobody dies. It’s a rule” and 2. The whole “Flash can run against gravity” deal.

Wally boards a plane and befriends a waitress…



The villain’s friends try to spring him. Wally stops them, but in the process, a hole is torn in the plane…


this leads to…


How brilliant is that?

Here is a glimpse of Wally dealing with the woman while in the sky…


That’s a glimpse of what the rest of the issue is like – Wally and the waitress in the sky while Wally tries to keep them both from dying.

After all, “Nobody dies. It’s a rule.”

It’s a brilliant little issue with strong artwork by Larcoque.

Well worth picking up – I’m sure you can find it in a discount bin on on eBay pretty easily!
