Showcase #29

I thought I'd post some great covers from one of the most important comic book titles of all time. DC created Showcase in the mid 1950's to try out ideas for proposed new series. It had its successes and failures. It was most well known for marking the first appearances of the Silver Age Flash, Green Lantern, and Atom. I'm more fascinated with some of the less heralded issues. This particular issue comes to mind although anybody who has it and the other two issues the Sea Devils appeared in love it. It's quite possibly Russ Heath's best work. It's spellbinding. Any other artist would not have been able to capture the undersea drama as good as Heath did. Needless to say, it's definitely worth picking up.
