The Flash-Joe Kubert-C. 1948

No story this time, I'm afraid. Just these two intriguing pages from a never-published Golden Age Flash story featuring Robert Kanigher's original Rose and the Thorn and a Green Lantern cameo, something one didn't see a lot of in Golden Age DC comics. These saw print buried in the back of a LOIS LANE reprint collection in the early seventies. As near as I can tell that was it unless Roy Thomas perhaps resurrected them and the story behind them in ALTER EGO and I missed it.


  1. Isn't the trip that Rose takes with Alan Scott the basis for the begetting of Jade and Obsidian? Pretty important cameo in that case!

  2. I'm thinking there are four or five complete Jay Garrick stories that weren't published and only showed up in the 70s in other books. It makes me wonder if the rest of the pages for this one exist somewhere as well.

  3. To follow up, according, this story entitled "Strange Confession" does exist in its entirety. To quote: "pages 11 and 12 published in Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #113: Sept.-Oct., 1971. Later published in its entirety in Robin Snyder’s fanzine The Comics [Vol. 6] #10: Oct., 1995.)"
