    Flash Comics #1-12 Bound Volume (DC, 1940). This fantastic bound volume features several key Golden Age DC first appearances - including those of the Flash, Hawkman, and Johnny Thunder! Included are copies of Flash Comics #1 (featuring first appearances of the Flash, Hawkman, Johnny Thunder, the Whip, and Shiera Saunders), #2 (first Hawkman cover), #3 (first appearance of King Standish, E. E. Hibbard's first art on the Flash), #4 (The Whip cover, Sheldon Moldoff's first Hawkman art), #5, 6, 7, #8 (classic Flash cover), 9, #10 (another classic Flash cover), #11 (gorilla cover), and #12 that have been trimmed and spiral-bound into a hardcover volume for the office of managing editor M. C. Gaines. The comics also feature art by Stan Aschmeier for the Johnny Thunder stories. The comics were trimmed on all sides (meaning the spines have been trimmed away as well) and have had holes punched along the left edges to accommodate the spiral binding; otherwise they are in overall nice condition with bright, glossy covers, some mild to moderate wear, and off-white to tan pages with some instances of very mild chipping. The first page of issue #1 has become detached. Overstreet 2009 VG 4.0 value for group = $22,276.
