Speaking of which, is anyone here interested in the five Archive volumes collecting the same…"
"Robert Kanigher took over the series with #25, an odd choice considering the new direction. Replacing one old-guard writer with another doesn't seem t be the way to rejuvenate a title like Teen Titans at the time, unless they really just wanted…"
"DC dropped a number of superhero features in the period while continuing to put out around the same number of titles (around 30 titles a month on average, I think). My guess is Infantino thought the line should de-campify and diversify, and he…"
"They were probably thinking the costumeless setup and the more down-to-earth stories would be more exciting for an audience that might have found the costumes and code-names hokey. And done well, it could have been. (Probably they were hearing that…"
"Teen Titans #25, the first issue in this Omnibus, was cover-dated Jan/Feb 1970. The series was bi-monthly from the debut in 1966 until the hiatus occurred in 1973 with #43, cover-dated Jan/Feb of that year. It was revived in 1976, with…"

I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
