DC Comics has unveiled the decade-specific variants for Flash #750.

You can find all of the Flash #750 variant covers below, starting with the 1940s Jay Garrick cover by Nicola Scott (colored by Annette Kwok), which is the most decade-specific of the bunch, featuring as it does the first Flash, Jay Garrick. Another cool decade-specific touch to be found here is the 1980s cover by Gabriele Dell’Otto, which is a great nod to the Crisis on Infinite Earths event, during which Barry Allen famously sacrificed himself.

Which brings me to my main point of contention with these covers. No Wally West. Granted, that could be him in the suit for the 1990s cover, I guess, but it seems like a pretty major missed opportunity to not make the ’90s cover identifiably Wally West, given that he was the Flash for that entire decade (which, incidentally, is obviously the decade I read the most Flash comics since I’m furious right now while typing this). But I digress and also there’s always hope for a Wally cover through the store-specific variants, most of which have not been unveiled just yet.

Yet another Wally West snub aside, this is a pretty strong group of artists. In addition to the aforementioned Scott and Dell’Otto covers, it has Gary Frank (colored by Brad Anderson) drawing the 1950s cover, Nick Derington drawing the 1960s cover (my personal favorite), the legend Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (colored by Alex Sinclair) drawing the 1970s cover, Francesco Mattina drawing the 1990s cover, Jim Lee (inked by Scott Williams and colored by Alex Sinclair) drawing the 2000s cover, and Francis Manapul drawing the 2010s cover.

  1. I’m pretty sure that Jim Lee one is Wally. His belt came in from slight angles and met at the belt buckle location as opposed to Barry who had a belt that was unbroken as it looped around his waist.

  2. Showing my age here, but I can’t accept anyone but Carmine Infantino drawing the Flash. So I haven’t read the book since, oh, 1985.
