I've never been to Comic-con and likely never will, but if there was one I would go to, it would be this one, just to get this 2017 convention yearbook! Bruce Timm cover stolen from Mark Evanier's…Continue

"The first two are from Star Spangled Comics featuring Robin. The art style, giant props and the tilted corner of the nameplate made me think Detective Comics, but I was wrong. Well played! Hoy"

"Oh, thanks, Luke. I remember reading reading that article in TJKC, but the last time I tried to find it I couldn't. (The link you provided to "The Jack F.A.Q." is the same as printed in TJKC.) I'm inclined to trust…"

"There's a post on the subject here that refers to an article Mark Evanier has written on the subject. He wrote a post here on the subject sometime before that, at a time when he wasn't yet sure."

"In addition to Strange Sports Stories in 1973-1974, DC also published three issues of Champion Sports, #1 (October-November 1973), #2 (December 1973-January 1974), and #3 (February-March 1974).  Joe Simon was the editor and writer, and Jerry…"

"Come to think of it, the issue may have been less which was the weakest antelope in DC’s herd, and more which was the weakest antelope in an editor’s herd. According to the DC Timeline when DC started crediting the editors in 1959…"
