Over on The Flash's television series it appears that Jay Garrick has been cast!
A somewhat dissapointing choice in opting for a younger Jay over the well loved seasoned veteran, but as an introduction it does hark back to the days when Barry and Jay shared a very special relationship in comics. Whether this modern television version of Jay Garrick will ever become such a close friend as back in the heydays of those newsstand distributed comics remains to be seen, but for those who remember those days the times when Barry or Jay paid the other a visit were one of the highlights of the publishing year....
The Forgotten Irv Norvick - Few if any remember Norvick's solidly impressive work, particularly on The Flash where he had a lengthy run that dfined the character in the mid 1970s. He is an artist I have been reaquainting myself with in recent months and like Don Heck or Don Newton deserves to be much better remembered than he actually id... a generation of prodigous artists from this era are now, sadly, all but forgotten today. Irv Norvick being a prime example.
Does this mean that somehow we will see that the earth of the current Flash might not really be normal earth, as maybe that one is the one with jay on it?
And will this pave way for JSA of some type now, to go with Flash JLA lite team?
