    Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. Here's the first appearance of that famous scarlet speedster, Barry Allen, aka the Silver Age Flash. The new character's debut, at a time when superheroes were out of fashion, started a new wave of popularity for costumed crimefighters that hasn't abated to this day. Showcase was, of course, a tryout series, and the Flash's tryout was a success thanks in part to Flash's great new look designed by Carmine Infantino, the art of Infantino and Joe Kubert, and a zippy origin story by Bob Kanigher. More Showcase appearances would soon follow. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $3,600; VF 8.0 value = $13,200. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 7.0, 15 higher.
