The Secret Origins of The FLAME & FLAME GIRL!

This time you get a two-fer.

Mainly due to the fact that the story surrounding the origin of The Flame from THE FLAME #1 was so blah, I decided to just stitch the first 3 pages together into a "stand alone" origin. A question that is unanswered (either in this mini-origin, or the full story) is how he got the name Gary Preston.

Oh well. Deal with it. Okay, here t'is:

from
THE FLAME #1 (Summer 1940)
written by Will Eisner?; art by ?


In this story, we see how Linda acquired her powers and became FLAME GIRL! (Dated two months before Wonder Woman debuted ALL STAR COMICS #8, by the way...)

from WONDERWORLD COMICS #30 (October 1941)
written by ?; art by Arthur Cazeneuve?

  1. I've just discovered your great blog and hope to visit here regularly.

    I got a real hoot out of your comments about some of the "questionable" cover choices and all that they may have unintentionally implied back in the day.

    Keep up the good work!
