Detective #225
Published November 1955

  Although officially classed as a Golden Age book, this comic is accepted by some as the true first Silver Age comic!!!
    Showcase #4 is widely known as the first Silver Age book because it introduced the first new comic super hero since the Golden Age  - The Flash. Showcase #4 was published in September of 1956 while this book (which introduced the Martian Manhunter - a new comic super hero) was published almost a year earlier! There is some controversy on this issue.
    Presented here is that milestone first Manhunter story (it's 6 pages long).
