FLASH COMICS 1940-49 #1
CGC F/VF: 7.0
Flash Comics boasted some of the most distinctive and finely drawn covers of the Golden Age, thanks to the skill of artists such as Sheldon Moldoff. His malleable style worked well both for children's cartoon comics and action-packed hero books, and here his fine line and deft sense of drama create an exciting and eye-catching cover image. A wonderful design from a true master that communicates the character's super skills with a few simple details, such as the sense of speed created by motion lines and the path of the bullet fired by the thug in the foreground. These elements all combine to form a perfect introduction to the newly minted hero.

The importance of this issue cannot be underestimated, as it introduced the world to two of DC's biggest names, characters that continue to bear fruit today, Flash and Hawkman. The current version of the Flash has a successful TV series that just launched its fifth season, as well as various cameo appearances and an upcoming feature film in the DCEU.

This restored example of Flash Comics #1 will undoubtedly please those Fastest Man Alive fans out there that have had their eye on a copy of this important key but find themselves priced out of the unrestored market. Restored books are enjoying a greater acceptance in the marketplace, as original condition copies are often too rare or too expensive for some collectors to obtain. We hope to make some determined Flash fan's dream come true with this special copy. Golden Age keys are always sought after, be they high or low grade, original condition or restored.

Overstreet Guide 2018 F/VF (7.0) value = $84,500.
