    Flash Comics #1 (DC, 1940) CGC Apparent VG 4.0 Extensive (P) Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet ranks this key issue as the eighth most valuable comic book of all! It features the first appearances of not one but two all-time great DC legends, Hawkman and Flash. Shelly Moldoff, Hawkman's preeminent artist, was assigned the cover, creating a classic image that every comics fan recognizes. Though all else pales by comparison in a comic that introduces Hawkman and Flash, we'd be remiss if we didn't note that Shiera Sanders, who would soon become Hawkgirl, makes her first appearance as well. In fact, there's even a fourth first appearance that's noteworthy: future Justice Society member Johnny Thunder, a clueless sort who never fails to amuse, also debuts here. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2004 GD 2.0 value = $6,200; VG 4.0 value = $12,400.
