Now here’s Ken!

My wife and I just purchased our first house and I got to turn one of the spare rooms into a library.

You can see right away that the majority of the collection is Flash related. On the Flash wall is the original art from an Ethan Van Scriver cover and a Scott Kollins page. Also are two pieces from the now defunct WB Store, a promotional piece from the post office, and a sketch from Leonard Kirk. The large black cabinet is from Comic Cubes and contains all my Flash and Impulse books.

The ragdoll and Sackboy were both hand made by friends of mine. The Capt. Cold Munny was made by my wife and me. We also did the Rorschach standing atop the other glass case. I wore the Flash watch on my wedding day. The very small comic is just like the one I had as a kid, the candy pack-in that made me fall in love with the character.

In the other case is some Iron Fist, Hellboy, other assorted busts, and at the bottom are figures from the Warriors. Starman gets his own shelf because of how awesome he is. The picture of Greg Evigan is signed, “F*cking Monkey.” The pistol in the picture is a working replica of a Colt Navy Arms revolver; there is no way of that every going off without 5 minutes of packing black powder and adding a cap, so it is very safe.

The last picture has the Code 3 X-Wing, all of the astromech figures are difference colors, some pilots, and some assorted Transformers.

Some of the pictures look a little cluttered, I still haven’t finished hanging art in the other rooms of the house. Right now the closet is hiding a bunch of my action figures, some still in package. Once I got the room setup I liked the clean look so much I decided not to display them. I think that is all the important stuff to mention, I’ve probably forgotten something.

First time ever shown, a hard core Flash fan!

A more modest collection this time, but just as fun to see….. (I still can’t understand how someone can afford most of the recent collections displayed…. Are they from a wealthy family? Do they eat peanutbutter sandwiches so that they can have every copy of every version of every **pick one series”" comic?)

Anyway, peace!

FLASH FTW, this flash collection is full of win!!! all he is really missing is a nice tribute figure from the original live action flash tv series in true 1.6 fashion!!!!

Very nice. While I love the craziness of, say, the guy who filled his room with every Spider-Man collectible imaginable, I also admire the discipline you show in keeping your collection limited. I wish I had a spare room to use like that!

I don’t get how people can afford such a hobby either, but, that said, I think it’s cool!! In a geeky sort of way, I mean. :-)

What I want to know is… Nothing from the 1990 Flash TV show, but an autographed picture of Greg Evigan? Or is that “The Bear’s” autograph?

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I was a little intimated to show my collection after the last couple.
I don’t have anything from the Flash show outside of the DVDs, but I didn’t take any pictures of the office considering that area is still full of cardboard boxes.
As far as the Evigan autograph, he just happened to be at a local convention. I couldn’t resist.

Quite a stylish set up. I love it.

I am super jealous . i have a flash collection of my own but it does not come close this one.

where can i get the knitted flash ????

Hugues, thanks. The Flash Sackboy isn’t commercially available. A friend made it for me. There are better pictures of it here: http://fingmonkey.blogspot.com/2010/07/flash-nfs-3.html
