    Description

    Showcase #4 Ohio - Fairborn pedigree (DC, 1956) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Ushering in the Silver Age, this book re-introduced the Flash to a new group of readers, and handed the mantle to Barry Allen, who would wow fans for 30 years before meeting his demise in the Crisis series. The success of Showcase #4 gave Julius Schwartz the impetus to revive many of DC's old superheroes throughout the 1960s, breathing new life into the superhero genre. High-grade copies of this book are very scarce, with only one graded NM 9.4 by CGC as of this writing. Of the 43 graded by CGC, only three are rated higher than this one -- a truly exceptional copy of one of the most important books printed during the Silver Age. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $12,500.
