1991 "The Flash" Comics Scene article

"The Flash" was, in my opinion, one of the better live-action superhero series to ever be on television. Much inspiration from the 1989 "Batman" film was evident, from the costume with the sculpted musculature, to the retro-noirish sets, to the music (the rousing and bombastic theme was composed by Batman's Danny Elfman). Below is a cover story from issue #18 of the Comics Scene magazine, (from the same publishers as Starlog) published in April of 1991, on the Scarlet Speedster as played by John Wesley Shipp.
