    Flash Comics #1 (DC, 1940). One of the classic DC keys, this introductory issue features the first appearance of Hawkman, Hawkgirl (as Shiera Sanders), and the legendary Flash. The series would run 104 issues, enjoying success throughout the '40s and proving itself as one of DC's mainstays. Shelly Moldoff, Hawkman's preeminent artist, was assigned the cover, creating a classic image that has only grown in fandom's conscience. Overstreet ranks this issue as the eighth most valuable Golden Age comic, a position that has been earned through years of meteoric jumps in price and demand. This copy is unrestored with very nice pages and most of its wear limited to the spine area. There is a 2 1/4" tear on the right side of the front cover, but because of minimal color loss, does not mar the appearance of the book. No doubt this book would have graded much higher if not for the tear. Thirty interior pages and the inside back cover have a date stamp on them. A truly magnificent book, Flash #1 is capable of turning the heads of even the most jaded collectors. CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 GD 2.0 value = $6,000; FN 6.0 value = $18,000.
