The Best Cover You've Never Seen--The Brave And The Bold #72 (1967)!!

I know that there is a tendency amongst some of our ilk to show disdain for Carmine Infantino's work, especially in the latter days of his career.

But I defy anyone to tell me that this isn't a freakin' great cover (inks by Murphy Anderson):

I'm just sayin'.

Weirdly, I haven't seem that. Mind, I'd argue that it wasn't from the end of his career, it's about 20 years before, you cheat!

Infantino's 60s work is fantastic, especially the stuff he was doing in Detective Comics.

I like the smashed biplane in the foreground. That alone would make me want to read the story, just to see if it actually turns up, and if so, how is it relevant to the Flash loosening the Spectre's teeth?

Calvin--The Flash is possessed by the Ghost Pilot, the spirit of a deceased WWI pilot who is seeking revenge on his old comrades...
