Flash Fridays – The Flash #328 December 1983

Mar 22, 2024

This issue of The Flash is like alumni week. It starts with Murphy Anderson adding his inking to Carmine Infantino’s cover. For longtime Flash fans, this a real nostalgic throwback and a treat. But it doesn’t end there. In a story called Reverse-Flashback, with the exception of the opening and closing pages, the rest of the issue reprints the Flash wedding issue from #165 featuring the inks of early days inker Joe Giella. So on the splash page we see Superman about to make his decision about whether or not the Flash can remain in the Justice League, with the Flash thinking back to his wedding day with Iris. Even if the reprint was simply needed to get the book back on schedule, it still works to supply context to the current story arc in regard to Flash’s past history with the Reverse Flash, and I don’t mind it a bit. It buttresses the trial of the Flash beautifully. The book ends just as the previous one did with Superman about to announce his decision.
