"On another thread I commented that in California periodicals (newspapers and magazines) and candy used to be free of sales tax. Interestingly, if a comic was an "Annual" or "Special" it was taxable because it wasn't a…"

" the notion was that you shouldn't tax reading  There's no tax on newspapers and magazines in Illinois to this day. It's always been considered an infringement of freedom of the press, which is a Constitutional no-no. Comic…"

"Okay, I'm wrong. Checking the facts, I find that the Canadian dollar dropped for most of the '60s to around 92 cents (it had been above the American dollar for most of the '50s). It rose above the US buck in the early '70s, but…"

"Those prices stickers ring a bell, but I can't remember where I've seen them. I don't think it was an exclusively Canadian thing. At that time, in our province, there was no tax on comic books (a fact that always stunned my father,…"

"I never picked up BPTG. I was going to say that Ditko would have presented Brother Power as a Question/Mr. A character. Good hippies? He wouldn't have had any. From what I read, it sounds like it was just as extreme in the other direction."

"Canadian market stickers? That's a possibility, I suppose, although I don't remember hearing that happened. More likely it was tests by distributors to see how it affected sales .  For some oddity such as the comics vending machines I…"

"Carmine Infantino said in this interview Mort Weisinger had it killed. According to Joe Orlando, in this interview, Simon had put the first issue together before he was assigned to be its editor. The covers strike me as good, but judging by the…"

"Any comic priced 10, 12 or 15 cents in the '60s was worth it, if you ask me. There was a fugdicle that cost me as much that and made me fall horribly ill--I certainly wish I'd never bought it. Reading comics helped me recover. I'll…"

"Mr. Age wrote: Steve Ditko would've been great, but it makes me laugh just to think about him drawing it. Ditko drawing a comic book about the hippie generation is wrong in so many ways that he would, in fact, have been the *perfect* choice to…"

"I recall reading somewhere, and it may have just been speculation, that DC canceled Brother Power after only two issues because some of the other editors didn't like that their company was publishing a "hippie comic book." Hoy"

"Sure, I think BPTG would've definitely lasted longer with a different artist. In the first place, it can't have lasted LESS long and still appeared, so the odds are in its favor. But I can't imagine Neal Adams drawing it. That…"
