FLASH'S ROGUES GALLERY
AS FEATURED IN DC HOUSE ADS

The Flash has one of the greatest Rogue's Galleries of interesting super-villains since Dick Tracy. (Tracy's creator, Chester Gould, is the one who started the "weird crooks with cool names" thing). Thanks to the Flash TV series, many of these bad guys are now household names -- especially the nefarious REVERSE FLASH. Reader, keep a close eye on him. He's shifty!

Where do the Rogues get their cool costumes from? In the whole history of comic books, this was never explained -- until Flash #141, when we learned that a man named Paul Gambi was the official tailor to the super-villains! Flash visited him in disguise...

Believe if or not, Paul Gambi actually made a very brief appearance in the Flash TV series pilot episode -- or at least his van did (pictured below). Apparently he also ran a cleaning business. Figures. Those super-villains get mighty dirty! By the way, don't worry reader, we'll get to the Flash TV series in a few issues. And with an 80-pg. Giant no less!
