    Showcase #4 (DC, 1956) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white pages. Generally regarded as inaugurating the Silver Age of comics, Carmine Infantino's splendid cover woke comicdom from the funk cloud it had been under after Dr. Frederic Wertham and other censors successfully lobbied against so many themes and publishers in the early 1950s. Starting with this issue, the Showcase title became one of DC's designated "try-out" venues (the other was Brave and the Bold), where such other favorites as Challengers of the Unknown, Green Lantern, and the Atom made their Silver Age debut, before winning their own self-titled comics. And of course, this is the issue that introduced the Flash to a new generation of comic fans. Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $3,564.
