Flash Comics Ashcan Edition V1#1 (DC, 1939) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages.
In late 1939, DC and Fawcett, coveting this title, each raced to get its own ashcan version printed and a copyright secured. Each succeeded in printing an ashcan, but DC beat Fawcett to the punch, ever so barely, and gained the copyright to Flash Comics. The title became one of DC's mainstay Golden Age series, and, later, in 1956, the prime namesake character, The Flash, was instrumental in launching the Silver Age. This COMIC was acquired from long-time Golden Age DC Editor/Production Manager Sol Harrison, who was an excellent custodian of the rare copy. At NM+ 9.6, this beauty is not only the highest-graded DC ashcan known, it may be the highest-graded copy of any ashcan. The cover is a Leo O'Mealia creation for Adventure Comics #41, and the interior was lifted from All-American Comics #8, which featured the first appearance of the Ultra Man
THIS ASHCAN IS THE VERY FIRST DC FLASH COMICS EDITION, IT WAS USED TO PATENT THE TITLE.
THERE ARE ONLY 6 KNOWN TO EXIST.
THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE ONE 9.6.
WHICH THERE IS ONLY ONE OF.
The lucky buyer who wins this item will have a truly unique and prized treasure.
