FLASH COMICS 1940-49 #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
CGC F/VF: 7.0
One of the great legacy characters of comics history, this is the first appearance of the original Jay Garrick Flash, whose popular exploits carried him through to the end of the first great wave of superheroes, and whose successor, Barry Allen, kicked off the Silver Age in high style. Collecting the Flash is like collecting superhero history, as it has changed, developed, and adapted, more than any other franchise, to truly reflect the tenor of its times. Here, the Golden Age of comics is represented by Jay's muscular, can-do American spirit and moxie, as an all-American boy with brains and brawn becomes a hero not just through a fluke of science, but by his courage, good will, and good cheer. Did we mention Hawkman?
