    Showcase #1-11 Bound Volume (DC, 1956-57). If the ultra high-grade collection of Showcase issues offered elsewhere in this sale seems out of reach, here's another great way to get this set of books that kicked off the Silver Age of Comics; the issues collected in this bound volume include the first appearance of the Barry Allen-version of the Flash in Showcase #4. Other highlights include the origin and first few appearances of the Challengers of the Unknown by Jack Kirby, early Lois Lane solo adventures, and the first appearance of the villainous Captain Cold. There is a small tear to the lower left corner of #4 and some cover wear and small tears to #6, otherwise the comics are in great condition with glossy covers, cream pages, and some tanning to the inside covers. Overstreet 2009 VG 4.0 value for group = $8,656.
