Brave and the Bold #72

Brave and the Bold #72 (On Sale: April 20, 1967) has a really nice cover by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson; love that spectral Flash. I think it was years later that I went back and bought this issue. As a kid the Spectre gave me the creeps!

Inside we have The Spectre and The Flash in "Phantom Flash, Cosmic Traitor" by Bob Haney, Carmine Infantino and Charles Cuidera. While on a visit to Earth-2, the Flash of Earth-1 is captured by two criminals. The crooks turn him over to the ghost of Luther Jarvis, AKA the Ghost Ace. Jarvis intends to use Flash as the instrument for revenge against his former World War I squadron members.

After turning the Flash in a spectral being under his control, the Ghost Ace kidnaps the former pilots and forces them to duel him in the skies. The Spectre investigates the disappearance of the pilots and comes to their aid. He prevents their murder, then challenges the Ghost Ace to a fair fight.
