The series debuted with a January 1940 cover date and the first issue featured the first appearances of the Golden Age versions of the Flash, Hawkman, and Johnny Thunder. The Flash was later given a solo comic book series, All-Flash which ran for 32 issues between Summer 1941 to January 1948. Artist Joe Kubert’s long association with the Hawkman character began with the story “The Painter and the $100,000” in Flash Comics #62 (Feb. 1945). The Monocle was introduced in #64 as a new foe for Hawkman. Carmine Infantino’s first published work for DC was “The Black Canary”, a six-page Johnny Thunder story in Flash Comics #86 (August 1947) that introduced the superheroine the Black Canary. Writer Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert created the Thorn in issue #89 (November 1947). Flash Comics was cancelled in 1949 with issue #104.[1] The series’ numbering would be continued by the first volume of The Flash series, which debuted during the Silver Age in 1959 and featured Barry Allen as the new Flash.
