    Description

    Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This is simply one of the most significant comic books ever. In the mid-1950s, the comic industry was struggling, and though superheroes had gone out of fashion, DC decided to bring one hero back for a tryout issue. The new Flash, Barry Allen, made his first appearance here, the comic was a hit, and after a couple more Showcase appearances, the Flash received his own title. Showcase #4 is generally considered to be the start of the Silver Age. The story, written by Bob Kanigher and drawn by Carmine Infantino and Joe Kubert, also featured the first appearance of Barry's girlfriend Iris West, and of course detailed the origin of the new Flash's powers. It's a key book by any standard. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $13,200. CGC census 12/04: 6 in 8.0, 4 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
