    Flash Comics #1 (DC, 1940) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Slight (P) Off-white to white pages. One of the classic DC keys, this introductory issue 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. Overstreet ranks this issue as the eighth most valuable Golden Age comic. Flash #1 is capable of turning the heads of even the most jaded collectors. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: cover and centerfold reinforced, cover cleaned, interior lightened." Overstreet 2004 GD 2.0 value = $6,200; VG 4.0 value = $12,400; FN 6.0 value = $18,600; VF 8.0 value = $46,500; VF/NM 9.0 value = $71,750.
