There's actually a third cover that fits with these two. Flash v.1 #340 (Dec. 1984), by Carmine Infantino & Klaus Janson, turns the layout on its head a bit -- it's a plain white background instead of a black one, for instance -- but it's got the giant words indicating trouble (in this case "The Trial Begins"), and the Flash's pose is nearly identical to the first one.If you're interested, I've got a whole page full of Flash cover homages (warning: will take a while to load).
Hmm. Logically, since "days in the life of Wally West" are largely a subset of "days in the life of the Flash", the clear implication here is that Barry Allen's Most Tragic Day was more tragic than Wally's.
That's a lot of tragedy.
That might be true, Monty, but we're promised to actually *experience* the tragedy of Wally's day, whereas with Barry's tragic day we can just sit back and read about it while snacking on some delicious crackers and sipping a cool beverage.
