Jim Lee's 80th Anniversary Celebration of The Flash, in November

The original Flash, Jay Garrick, created by Gardner Fox and Harry Lampert first appeared in Flash Comics #1, published in November 1939.

And this November, DC Comics will be celebrating his 80th anniversary. It is possible they may try and call it the 750th issue if you add them all up, including the zero issues, one milion issues etc. We'll see.

So we may get something similar to the Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000 oversized issues for the occasion.

But we will definitely be getting a hardcover reprint volume as well.

Showcase: 80 Years of The Flash, with a new cover below by Jim Lee and Scott Williams.
