    Showcase #4 The Flash Ohio-Fairborn pedigree (DC, 1956) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Zooming your way is a very pretty copy of the first appearance of the Silver Age Flash, and undoubtedly the most important Silver Age comic ever produced. As they had done with the original Golden Age Flash some years earlier, artists Carmine Infantino and Joe Kubert lent their talents to bring this character to life, with an all-new origin story and totally revamped costume. It was the beginning of a new era for DC comics, who were close to ruin following the lagging sales of mid-Fifties comics, in the wake of the recent uproar over violent content. Suddenly with this creation, superheroes were "cool" again, and a whole new generation embraced them. This superb copy does have a tiny flaw, as noted by CGC: "'S' written on cover in grease pencil". Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $13,500. CGC census 10/06: 6 in 8.0, 5 higher.
