I was going to post a different cover tonight, but then I noticed Bart saying “Sweet Christmas!” on this one. With the recent Luke Cage casting announcement, it seemed appropriate.
Have a merry Christmas if you celebrate it, or just enjoy your day if you don’t. And check out our gallery of Flash Christmas covers through the years.

So for Christmas this year I decided to make a Gingerbread Flash. Pretty appropriate considering the old Gingerbread Man story and the taunt that he would yell while running at cookie crumbling speeds: Run, run as fast as you can; You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.
I made two attempts with varying success. This is the first time I had done anything by myself involving Gingerbread men and even then I was using a Trader Joe’s Giant Gingerbread Man as a template. I used a combination of cake and cookie frosting (should have just used cake frosting) and it was a fun learning experience overall.
Flash 1.0 (Barry):
My first attempt at Gingerbread Flash. You can tell it is Barry because of the belt and the blue eyes.
Flash 2.0 (Wally):
My second attempt came out a little better. This is kind of a mix of looks for Wally: JLU/New Comic Costume emblem, with exposed green eyes and centered belt that meets in the middle.
The Fastest Gingerbread Men Alive!
Merry Christmas, from everyone here at Speed Force! And a very special thanks to all the guest contributors helping out over the last couple months; Shag, Dave Huang, Liquidcross, Brandon, Frank Lee Delano, KC Flash, Dave Sun, Ken O, Greg Elias, Kojo Manu, Adam Komar and anyone I might have left out, You guys are awesome! Can’t wait to see more fantastic stuff from a very talented Flash community.
Keep it Flashy
Just a quick note: Today’s DC Holiday Special ’09 does feature a Flash story, “The Flash Before Christmas” by Amy Wolfram and Daniel Leister. Surprisingly, it’s a Wally West story, in which the speedster tries to do what the rest of us do just before Christmas: Take care of a zillion last-minute tasks.
