Published November 1955
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).
