I remember buying my first comics at a garage sale. Got a big pile for the high price of 3 for a nickel ! Flash, and Green Lantern were my favorites, so I grabbed all of them, and this one was in there. And like every other kid in the universe, someone tossed out my comics a couple of years later! But I got this one back, only 20 years later, and it's what I named my first store after. This was a great series. They introduced new characters, who sometimes got their own series. Flash appeared in #4, came back for #8, then #13, #14, and then got his own series starting with Flash #105. Why 105 and not #1? Well, there was another Flash, Jay Garrick, and back in the 1940's he was the fastest man alive for 104 issues of Flash Comics, sharing the book with Hawkman early on. So Barry Allen picked up the numbering where Jay Garrick left off. The two would even meet up with each other in the ground breaking story "Flash of Two Worlds" in issue # 123. I'm still looking for a real good copy of that one!
