FLASH COMICS 1940-49 #1
CGC FN: 6.0
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.
Owning a Flash Comics #1 is always a wise investment, and this FN copy bears bright colors, is very clean and solid for its grade, with a tight spine and white pages. This is a classic Golden Age key which promises to continue to appreciate in value over the years.
