Welcome to the second episode of the CRISIS ON MULTIPLE EARTHS PODCAST, a show dedicated to covering the stories chronicling the adventures and team-ups of the Justice Society of America of Earth-2 and their Earth-1 counterparts the Justice League of America. Each episode will be devoted to a single issue of one of these Crisis crossovers, so join me, your host Kyle Benning, as I chronologically work through the 8 volumes of Crisis on Multiple Earths and Crisis on Multiple Earth Team-Ups TPBs. 

This time out I once again dive into the Crisis on Multiple Earths Volume 1 TPB to examine the second meeting of the Flash of Earth-1 Barry Allen and the Flash of Earth-2 Jay Garrick, as told in the story from Flash #137, titled "Vengeance of the Immortal Villain." The issue originally went on sale April 18th 1963 and was written by Gardner Fox, penciled by Carmine Infantino, and inked by Joe Giella.

You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes under the King-Size Comics Giant Size Fun Podcast feed, or download the episode directly here:CRISIS ON MULTIPLE EARTHS EP 003 Flash #137

As I mentioned in the podcast, the mask Hawkman wears in this one is a unique "hybrid" mask of sorts that only ever appears in this issue, never to be seen again. Check out the mask Hawkman wore in Flash #137:

Compared to the mask he wore in Flash Comics #96: 

And finally the yellow cowl mask he wore in All-Star Comics #57 and wears in next episode's adventure Justice League of America #21.
