    Showcase #4 The Flash - Savannah pedigree (DC, 1956) CGC FN 6.0 Off-white pages. Considered by most to be the first Silver Age comic, this is certainly the most valuable Silver Age DC. It's the origin and first appearance of the Silver Age Flash (Barry Allen). As Paul Levitz noted, it "improbably [combined] four of the most important talents ever to work at DC for the only time on a single story, published at a most unlikely moment." The reference is to Carmine Infantino and Joe Kubert (who share the cover art credit), writer Robert Kanigher, and editor Julius Schwartz. A milestone! Overstreet 2010 FN 6.0 value = $4,800. CGC census 1/11: 2 in 6.0, 24 higher.
