Flash Comics #30

Flash Comics #30
Here's a high-quality scan of one of the early issues of the original Flash. Before Wally West or Barry Allen, there was Jay Garrick. Garrick's Flash series lasted only from 1940-1949. This series ended at issue #104. It's very odd that the Barry Allen Flash series began with #105, when there hadn't been any Flash comics for basically ten years. Green Lantern returned after an 11 year absence and Hal Jordan's GL was given an issue #1. I guess DC Comics learned that issue #1's sell more. If DC had used the same numbering philosophy that they did with the Flash, the 1960 Green Lantern series would have begun with #39. And that would have been really lame.
