Hmm, what were the ancient Egyptians doing with that speed formula that Professor Gill discovered? Was there an ancient version of Flash Comics, where stories of Hawkman and Johnny Quick appeared?
Joan Swift accidentally pronounced the speed formula in Adventure Comics #181 while going over some physics papers. She created a costume like Johnny's and dubbed herself the Queen of Speed. When the effect faded, she was unable to locate the formula in the papers again and couldn't recall it from memory.

Chuck, that would have been a project I'd have supported. Murphy did some beautiful reproductions of Lou Fine covers featuring some of those characters.

I always loved the JOHNNY QUICK reprints from the mid-sixties on and later I ended up using his "secret formula" as a password for a longtime on the Net! (Not any more)

The plot of the Flash story reminds me of the Philip K. Dick story "Paycheck" - does anyone know if Horselover Fat (as Dick occasionally called himself) was a comics fan?

I think that I would rate these stories in the order that you've "stacked" them, Pappy.

I loved reading Quicksilver the most, with Johnny Quick next and then the Flash. It's a tough call between these gems, and admittedly a fine line separates them, but there you go.

Murphy Anderson once told me at a convention that he had lobbied DC editorial staff very hard in the mid-to-late 1980's to allow him to produce a mini-series using many of the old Quality Comics heroes, particularly the Lou Fine characters. I remember seeing his nice sketch of Quicksilver in person. Too bad that project never got off the ground.
