    Description

    Showcase #8 The Flash (DC, 1957) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. The only copy graded above VF 8.0 as of this writing! This is also the only copy we've ever offered to have the "white pages" certification. One reason this is hard to find in high grade is that the uniform green background of the cover shows blemishes very easily, as many a long-suffering collector can attest. And the stories were exciting enough that the book tended to be read and re-read! It's the second appearance of Silver Age Flash, released eight months after Showcase #4 -- reportedly the sales figures of the earlier issue were in when this was commissioned, but it would take this and two more tryout issues to make DC comfortable enough to give the new character his own series. The issue also has the origin and first appearance of Captain Cold, who would become a regular in the hero's rogues' gallery. Carmine Infantino is the cover artist. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $18,000. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 9.2, none higher. From the Motor City Showcase Run.
