    Showcase #5-24 Bound Volume (DC, 1956-60). This stunning collection allows you a peek at the early, formative days of DC's Silver Age. The tales featured include the origin and first appearance of the Silver Age incarnation of the Green Lantern, a pre-Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane story (she became first Showcase character to earn a series), the second, third, and fourth appearances of the Flash, and the first few appearances of the Challengers of the Unknown, Adam Strange, and Rip Hunter. In other words, it rocks. The overall condition of the covers is fairly nice, with most exhibiting a moderate amount of creasing and staining, with the covers for issues #13 and 14 being virtually defect-free. The pages are in great condition, ranging from cream to white with an occasional stain or tear. All are bound in a dark green leather-style cover, and have the title and issue numbers embossed on the spine. All issues have been trimmed as part of the binding process. Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value for group = $8,284.
