DESCRIPTION
ow pgs
Silver Age begins here; origin and 1st app. Flash (Barry Allen) & 1st app. Iris West
It is widely held that Showcase #4 didn't just introduce the modern version of the Flash -- the issue may have saved the entire comic book industry from impending collapse. Before Julius Schwartz re-designed the Fastest Man Alive, superheroes were an afterthought in post-war comic books. Now, sixty-three years later, most comics not starring your favorite superheroes are often left to the weirdos in the corner. Showcase #4 made a strong impression on readers as the story resonated on multiple levels. The Flash is now enjoying renewed popularity with a weekly television show on the CW network, bringing forth another character from print to film and increasing demand for his first appearance. What price can you put on this book? A hero book which is a hero unto itself, acting as the savior for an entire wing of international pop culture. Who knows what may have become of comics if it were not for this special piece of inspiration.
Overstreet Guide 2021 VF- (7.5) value = $58,900
