A guy with a big round bright orange head was walking down the street with his girlfriend, and ran into a friend he hadn’t seen in years. The friend said, “Hey, it’s been a long time! What in the world happened to your head?”The guy said, “Oh, that. A few years ago I found a genie bottle in an alley. I rubbed it and a genie came out, giving me three wishes. My first wish was to be independently wealthy, which I happily am. My second wish was to have the most beautiful woman in the world. And, well, that explains my beautiful girlfriend. My third wish — and this is where I think I may have gone horribly, horribly wrong — was to have a big round bright orange head.”Source: The Amazing Johnathan
You know, that original cover is so bizarre that I don't think any rendition of it could ever do it justice.Really...The Flash...With a big, giant, round head.I'll have what Ross was smoking.
Anthony V sez:That guy in the foreground with the hat is supposed to be Carmine Infantino. The original is one of my favorite covers of all time....I like the simple color choices which Aaron made...feels "hot".
I love that in the original they went with the giant close-up instead of showing the Flash running. He looks like he could be straight off of an early EIGHTBALL cover.
I agree with Richard J. Marcel, that original cover is far too awesome for any straight reinterpretation to add anything to it.
Well, I like Conley's version for the new intense determination on The Flash's face, it cracks me up.
Apparently big head Flash is a time-honored tradition. Here's a couple of other wacky examples.http://www.comics101.com/guestlecturer//news/Guest%20Lecturer/14/17flash.jpghttp://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/3986_4_0000031.jpg
