This month's Ask Mr. Silver Age column, in Comics Buyer's Guide  #1678, is a look at the key comics events of 1971, the year CBG started. It helps celebrate the magazine's 40th anniversary issue. To read what I considered the biggest events, go here:

See if you agree or think of any that should have been included. Also consider if there was a year in which more major changes were occurring with the impact that some of these had!

Walking up to the drug store spinner rack and seeing Kirby art on the cover of a DC comic book was one of the biggest "What th...?" moments in my comic reading life. There was little or no behind the scenes information available at that time, so the Kirby switch came as a total shock. To me Kirby was Marvel, at least in the visual sense, that he would work elsewhere seemed incomprehensible.
...The first DCKirby titles had " KIRBY IS HERE ! " blurbs upon them , didn't they ?????????
