I am a fan of The Flash in concept and design. He is a character, much like The X-Men that I am always interested in reading, but usually always disappointed in. More so now that Barry Allen is back. I can’t give a flying fuck. Wally West is The Flash to me. And yeah, he’s still around, he’s still called Flash, but it’s not the same, and I don’t care that he’s wearing the John Wesley Shipp costume. Barry taints all.
I did draw Wally here wearing the John Wesley Shipp costume, but I also made it shiny like Mike Wieringo did when he was drawing the character. I always loved that, and his whole take on the book and characters. Wieringo was a fantastic artist, and it’s still devastating that he’s gone.
As has been pointed out to me, I seem to gravitate toward “evil opposites” for favorite villains, and I have always loved Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash. No real reason for it.
Even though he did not specifically ask for it, the drawing is dedicated to Joe G.
