In the early 1950s, superhero comics had become controversial and were dealing with struggling sales. When the DC comic book entitled Showcase took a chance on an old superhero, The Flash, they did so in a way nobody was expecting – the character had been completely updated and revised, ushering in a whole new era of comic book superheroes with modern costumes, contemporary secret identities, as well as real-world concerns and weaknesses. #SHOWCASE4 is a 1956 Showcase #4 Comic Book published by D.C. Comics graded CGC 7.5 and a copy of what many consider to be the first Silver-Age comic ever printed.

“The book widely considered to have kicked off this new age—the Silver Age of Comics—was Showcase #4, the first appearance of the second Flash, Barry Allen.”

— Comics Alliance | October 2014

#SHOWCASE4 Timeline

#SHOWCASE4 Details

The Flash may not be as powerful as Superman, as thoughtful as Batman, or as strong as Wonder Woman, but his place in comic book history is every bit as important.  At the end of the golden age of the comic book superhero, many believed the genre was too controversial to continue.  But in 1956, Showcase #4 brought back The Flash, this time with a new alter ego and origin story, but with the same power.  Soon other characters would re-emerge and a new era of comic books would take the world by storm.
