The Summer of 1978, The DC Explosion was coming, until all of the sudden, it wasn’t. In one fell swoop, the plans for an aggressive expansion of the DC Comics line, more story, more pages, was crushed! Re-named The DC Implosion, an unexpected line wide cancellation came from on high, directed by Warner Bros. top management, an epic publication scale back like nothing seen before or after. 17 titles abruptly canceled, over before it began, writers and artists left scrambling for work. An industry in upheaval! Was it the end of an era or the beginning of an all new revolution?
I Discovered your podcasts via Cartoonist Kayfabe. I’m 47 & a DC guy, & Crisis was my Introduction. This period of DC had escaped my attention & I not only appreciate the spotlight on it with your insight. I appreciate you & your talent & knowledge of comics across the board. Thank You!
