The Flash #268

One of my favorite comics as a kid was this beauty from December, 1978. It had an innovative plot that impressed me greatly. It was one of the few times a comic book was an integral part of a comic book story. In the somewhat goofy plot, a comic (Flash Comics #26) has been coated with some sort of teleportation chemical and The Flash must keep it out of the hands of criminals who try to steal it at a comic convention. In a funny twist, two of the criminals dress up like Golden Age greats Green Lantern and Wildcat. The story still holds up today and is one of the funnest comics of the 1970's. Created by my favorite Flash creative team, Cary Bates, Irv Novick, and Frank McLaughlin. Cover by Al Milgrom and Dick Giordano.
