    Description

    Flash Comics #92 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1948) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. Probably the most collectable issue of the later part of the Flash run, this one is beloved as the first cover appearance of Black Canary as well as her first solo story (i.e. her first story without Johnny Thunder). The added mystique comes from the white cover which makes it prone to smearing. Overstreet notes that this key issue is "rare in Mint due to black ink smearing on white cover." Well, there is one small black smudge of some sort, near the top edge, but there's no sign of any fingerprints or other typical soiling this issue is famous for. And other than that little black mark, this fresh-looking copy simply screams Mile High in every way.

    Oddly enough, two copies have been certified 9.4, and since we have examined both we can compare and contrast with this Mile High. It's worth noting that the 9.4 Davis Crippen "D" Copy, certified with cream to off-white pages, lacked this one's amazing page quality. The other 9.4 is from what we've heard called the "Cape Cod" collection, and had a slight mis-cut and mis-wrap.

    In addition to the Black Canary cover, this issue has the first appearance of detective Larry Lance, a recurring character who became Black Canary's husband in later years.

    This smashing copy was pictured in the color section of the 1983-84 Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #13. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $5,900. CGC census 9/09: 2 in 9.2, 2 higher.
