Indexer Notes

It isn't clear what this advertisement is promoting as Murray didn't have a regular Flash series at this time. The last issue of The Flash Album (K. G. Murray, 1976 series) was late 1979. Flash stories did appear in some issues of Super Action Album (K. G. Murray, 1980 series) and Super Heroes Album (K. G. Murray, 1976 series) at this time.
