"Thank you. That fits with my personal feelings about the late 1960s Flash. As much as I like Frank Robbins' Batman work, he could not get the hang of Flash at all."

Welcome to the Comics Round Table,

Glad you are still here.I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame5@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
