In the post below by zechs27, someone asked for the Shade and Charles Dickens. And I thought Cry For Justice is also a good opportunity to post scans of another friendly meeting of Jay Garrick and the Shade.
From the Shade Miniseries (Vol. 1): Stumbling confused and amnesiac through a bad part of London - presumably disoriented by the event that gave him his shadow powers - Richard Swift is picked up by a member of the Ludlow family, who nurture him back to health.
Remember that garden, it will come back to haunt us later.
The Ludlows, however, turn out to be not so nice, but rather a family of psycho killers:
Driven into a corner, Richard Swift disovers his shadow powers, and slaughters the Ludlows:
And then returns to London, where he meets a friend from before he lost his memory:
This is from The Shade Miniseries (Vol.3)
1950: A descendant of the Ludlows in Keystone City (where the Shade is currently a Flash villain) intends to murder Jay and Joan and frame the Shade for it. Shade saves the day (and perhaps gives us a reason why Joan immediately offers him coffee):
From the final issue of the Starman v.2 series: Remember that garden from above? Well, this is the Shade's rose garden in Opal City. Looks familiar, doesn't it?
