Classic Covers: The Flash #111

Those of you who are using the new DC Comics postage from the United States Postal Service will be seeing a miniature reproduction of the cover to The Flash (V.1) #111 . Here's a larger look at the classic comic cover by Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella, featuring the Flash striving to outrun the deadly lightning bolts cast by invading cloud creatures. The set of twenty stamps are also available as stamped postcards.

With these 20 colorful stamps, the U.S. Postal Service honors stars from the world of DC Comics. Ten stamps show portraits of super heroes; the others show covers of individual comic books devoted to their exploits. Art director Carl T. Herrman worked with the creative staff at DC Comics on the design of this issuance.
