Retro Debut: The Amazing Star Sapphire
After sharing the Super-Villains Then & Now retrospective the other day, I thought it would be fun to take a look at the original Star Sapphire's first appearance (All-Flash #32, December 1947-January 1948). I only have a fiche scan of the original, so these pages come from a reprint in Flash Annual #1 (Summer 1963).
After this, Star Sapphire appears next in Comic Cavalcade #29 (November 1948) before disappearing into comic book limbo for over 50 years. And her one modern appearance (Brave and the Bold #6, March 2000) -- was more than a decade ago and probably isn't canon since the DC relaunch. So she's ripe for a comeback when Earth-2 stories start again.
