Last year marked the fifth anniversary of the DC Bombshells, the fun exercise in retro variant covers that exploded into statues and an ongoing series about DC's fighting women of World War II. In those five years, we've seen a number of DC heroes captured in comic form, like Flash (on 2014's The Flash #32 variant), but many have yet to actually get their own statues. More than three years in the making, Bombshell Jesse Quick finally gets her collectible due, and becomes another stand out work in a line filled with hits.
More than most, the mantle of The Flash is defined by legacy and by family. Jay Garrick wore the name proudly through the Golden Age, but it was a successor stepping in that kicked off the Silver Age and revitalized superhero comics on the whole. This week we look at the men and women to ride the lightning as The Flash.
