    Description

    Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. Here it is, folks, the comic that kicked off 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. We have auctioned copies of this primo book before but this is the highest graded we have had the pleasure of offering yet. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $13,000; VF/NM 9.0 value = $25,500.
