THE TUESDAY TUSSLE: Gene Colan vs Flash

The Tuesday Tussle; the biggest illustrators squaring off against pop's biggest icons - icons you never thought they'd touch. This week we see the street-level pencils of the late Gene Colan, take on comics' ultimate speedster; The Flash. Fight!

WINNER: Gene Colan. DC missed out big-time on this one - just look at how Gene drew warp-speed. That's how a speedster should move! While the Road Runner-ish legs make me smile, I dig the little touches, like the more oval aerodynamic helmet and goggles.

More great Gene Colan art after the jump.


  1. Now that's just beautiful.

  2. Wow, he would have been ideal as a regular Flash illustrator because his art had such motion in it.

  3. Glad you both like it as much as I do guys. Flash actually does look like the Scarlet Speedster!

    Aaron - good to see you back on IADW mr - hope you've been goin' well!

    Next week a dynamic duo by Jim Lee - but not the one you think!
