Schelly examines the rise of the EC 'New Trend' titles (Tales of the Crypt, Weird Science), Harvey Kurtzman's Mad, and Carl Bark's work on Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge. Plus, the retooling of the Flash in Showcase #4 that kicked off the Silver Age, the introduction of the Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange, and the new Green Lantern! Also, the return of the Timely heroes Captain America, the Human Torch, and the Sub-Mariner, and the birth of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's Fighting American and The Fly!
