    Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Slight (P) Cream 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. With this issue, the Showcase title became an instant force in driving the Silver Age, as such other favorites as Challengers of the Unknown, Green Lantern, and the Atom, followed in these pages before winning their own titled books, and Adam Strange made his first appearance before becoming the featured attraction of Mystery in Space. This is a bold, bright, very sharp copy, aided by "Slight Professional" restorative efforts that CGC describes as, "Restoration includes: color touch, spine/staples reinforced, cleaned, pressed." Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $3,564; VF 8.0 value = $13,000.
