THE ESSENTIAL SHOWCASE 1956-1959...
Back in 1992, DC COMICS released a nice little softcover
edition called The ESSENTIAL SHOWCASE 1956-1959, and
it's a right little cracker. Containing milestone issues, it features the
first appearances of FIREMAN FARRELL, the Silver Age FLASH,
CHALLENGERS Of The UNKNOWN, ADAM STRANGE, plus
LOIS LANE in her first solo magazine adventures, which later
led to her own long-running title.
Incidentally, I've only shown the splash pages of the first story
in those issues that contain more than one, so there's far more content
than you'd think from a glance at the images which follow. The book is
a nice little collectors' item and chances are you'll be able to track
one down on eBay should you feel so inclined.
While you're thinking about it, you can pore over the power-
packed piccies that I now present for your personal perusal within
the peaceful perimeters of your own home. Nice, ain't I?
