Harry Lampert, creator of “The Flash”, dead at 88

The illustrator that created the DC superhero “The Flash” and drew such characters as Popeye and Betty Boop is dead at 88. He was suffering from cancer. Lampert began drawing professionally at 16 and in 1940 teamed with writer Gardner Fox to create “The Flash”, a character that still flourishes today.
