"In this issues dramatic finale by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez, Allen gave his life in order to destroy an antimatter cannon created by the Anti-Monitor. Literally running himself to death, the Flash was reduced to merely an empty costume. But once the Crisis had been won, Wally West would accept the legacy of his mentor and begin the adventures of the new Flash."
Feel free to portray or re-imagine this event in any way you'd like.
Deadline is March 18th, 12:00PM Eastern Time.

@tonis: "Have to keep running...no matter how much it hurts." Gets me every time. T_T
Yea, both Kara and Barry's deaths were handled so noble and dramatic in that series. I still get shivers to this day reading it. Those two months back in the 80's left me completely floored as a comic fan.
PANEL1&2:Jay Garrick is trapped in the hands of the Anti-monitor
PANEL3:Barry Allen rushes to the rescue,moving and replacing Jay
PANEL4,5,6,7:Jay realizes what just happened and sees Barry die before his eyes
PANEL8&9:Kid Flash runs away knowing what just happened
When Feather announced this as the next crank subject I knew I wasn't gonna be able to resist. The Flash's death in Crisis #8 was truly one of the most heroic and well handled deaths of any comic character.
This was not an easy one to pull off, in the comic the whole sequence of events took 9 pages and 92 panels. I squeezed it down to 6 pages and had to edit it to the essentials but I feel I got the basics in there :)
@KEROGA: Awesome idea having all three incarnations involved. ^^
@tonis: So glad you entered! ...And with a lovingly crafted six page tribute at that. I salute you, sir!
@M.S. Feather: hehe, well I tried to get it down to less pages but after reading and re-reading the event there was just SO much there. It was really tough deciding what to edit cause everything seemed relevant and I wanted it to explain the moments leading up to his sacrifice.
Really made me appreciate the massive job they did with that series, and how epic this moment was. :)
Lot's of work, really shows the effort you put it in. Liked it to the point I had to download it and appreciate all the detail by zooming in. I did notice on the first page 3rd panel that Psycho-Pirate was reaching for something on Thunderer below the waist, was that intentional there tonis? Hehehe! JK
All in all I am impressed at how well your story panned out!
@KEROGA: Lovin' it buddy, keep it up!!
