Flash Football

Category: Covers — By @ 7:47 pm

The Beat writes about three promotional comics from Adidas featuring star soccer athletes (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football). The first cover, featuring a Jae Lee depiction of Emmanuel Adebayor, looked oddly familiar (and it seems I’m not the only one who sees a resemblance).

Cover: The Lightning Strika Blackest Night: The Flash

Okay, it’s nowhere near an exact match, but seeing it a matter of days after the Blackest Night: Flash #1 image was revealed made it hard for this Flash fan to miss the similarities. There’s even a lightning theme to it!

You can read the full comic on Adidas’ website.
