*DC: Having made his debut a couple of years earlier, only one thing was impeding the popularity of Kid Flash (Wally West) – the fact that his costume was indistinguishable from his elder mentor’s, so that readers got confused in a given panel as to whether they were looking at the Flash himself, or his ‘Mini-Me’. Problem solved in Flash #135, where enjoyable pseudo-scientific hokum gave Wally a makeover, with a distinctive (and to be honest, way cooler) new costume. This FN+ copy is in lovely shape, with only minor spine ticks and very faint top edge wear.
PICTURED: FLASH #135 FN+ p £100
