    Description

    Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. Generally considered the issue and event that started the Silver Age of Comics, the significance of this comic book is immense. After years of decline of the superhero as the centerpiece of comics, DC correctly perceived the time was ripe to expand the genre past Superman and Batman, two of the few Golden Age superheroes that had survived the early 1950s. So, DC used its new tryout title to reintroduce the Fastest Man Alive to a new generation of comic readers. The Flash was updated, given a snappy new costume and origin, and voila! The Silver Age was launched! Carmine Infantino and Joe Kubert, two of DC's best artists since the 1940s provided the cover and interior art for this issue, which not only brought back the Flash, but also had the first appearance of his fiancee, Iris West. The milestone book currently ranks just behind Amazing Fantasy #15 as the second most valuable Silver Age issue of all. Overstreet 2007 FN 6.0 value = $3,800; VF 8.0 value = $13,600. CGC census 1/08: 2 in 7.0, 15 higher.
