There were 4 issues of “Captain Flash” published by Sterling Comics between November 1954 and July 1955. Around the same time Sterling Comics produced 14 other issues across 5 more titles. Perhaps when low sales returns came in they decided to call it a day. Superhero comics were surprisingly out of favour at the time.
Why L.Miller decided to produce British reprints of “Captain Flash” in 1955 when there was such a short run of issues available is a mystery. Or maybe not. Chances are they’d be cheap to buy…….
PS: 58 years on we’re still waiting for the next issue…..
