    Flash Comics #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FR/GD 1.5 Light tan to off-white pages. One of the ten most valuable comic books in the hobby, because it has the first appearance of the Flash as well as Hawkman and Johnny Thunder. With Action #1 and Detective #27 now only affordable to a select few, it's time to consider the next tier of books that might make that jump, and pick up copies before they do. This key certainly falls into that category. Sheldon Moldoff cover art. Also includes the origin and first appearances of Johnny Thunder, The Whip, and Shiera Sanders. CGC notes, "Tape on entire cover & interior." Overstreet 2012 GD 2.0 value = $8,250. CGC census 5/13: 2 in 1.5, 20 higher. From the Christopher Forbes Collection.
