Flash #311

Jim did a lot of covers for DC, but was drafted to do only one cover for The Flash--issue 311, shown here. It's not the best Flash cover ever, but he was constrained by having to depict the Flash, err, constrained. But I like the little slices of history, and the trademark "anxiety rays" emanating from Barry's head! (Actually, a lot of comics artists used this effect, but I've noticed many readers associating this particularly with Jim Aparo's work. It's never seemed such a hallmark of his art to me, but it does seem to crop up a lot!)
