origin the Flash retold; 1st solo Flash title (Summer 1941)
The John Wise Collection
CGC VF/NM: 9.0
The Flash Comics imprint was developed as an anthology title, just in case the new character crashed and burned, but Jay ended up racing into the hearts of millions of readers. Having proven his popularity in Flash Comics, Jay Garrick, the most famous of Golden Age speedsters, was granted his own quarterly solo title, All-Flash. The few folks unfamiliar with the Crimson Comet were brought up to speed in this first issue with an origin recap, and were entertained by a comic full of solo Flash goodness. The title proved durable enough to enjoy a healthy run throughout the war period, and shortly thereafter, cemented the Flash's status as one of DC's top draws.

Interestingly, the title of the Flash's new solo venture was the result of a readership contest. National Periodicals (DC Comics) felt they needed to distinguish the new book from the already existing Flash Comics, and some canny young reader decided to merge the names of Flash Comics and another anthology featuring the character, All-Star Comics, hence, the name All-Flash Quarterly was born.

The black background on this cover makes it tough to find good-looking copies, as each scrape, tear, ding, and crease tends to show. We're delighted to offer this very attractive high-grade copy to collectors who demand only the very finest.

Overstreet Guide 2013 VF/NM (9.0) value = $14,875.
