About the Author

John Broome scripted the majority of the Silver Age Flash tales, beginning with the second story in Showcase #4 (the issue which launched the character's new incarnation) and continuing on The Flash until 1970. Prior to the Flash, Broome had accumulated a lively résumé of comic book credits, including Captain Marvel and the rest of the Marvel Family, the Golden Age Green Lantern, the Justice Society of America, Captain Comet, the Silver Age revival of Green Lantern, the Atomic Knights, Batman, Star Hawkins, Rex the Wonder Dog, Detective Chimp, and a variety of science fiction tales. Broome retired from comics in the 1970s and passed away in 1999.

Gil Kane is recognized as one of the most influential artists in comic books, with a string of credits at DC, Marvel, and other companies that includes Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Atom, The Flash, Conan, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, and many others. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, he was the artist tapped to relaunch both Green Lantern and The Atom, and, during the '60s, he was responsible for the first mass-market comic books, including the magazine His Name is Savage and the illustrated paperback novel Blackmark. With writer Ron Goulart, Kane created the newspaper comic strip Star Hawks.
