"Crack Western #63 (Quality, 1949) Crack Comics was converted into a Western with this issue. My guess is Quality was imitating DC, which had converted All-American Comics into All-American Western the previous year. DC also converted All Star…"

"Before Red Ryder Fred Harman did a similar strip called Bronc Peeler. The net tells me it was set in the present day. For at least part of its run its topper was a Western panel called On the Range. I really like these: the images look like…"

"If you'll forgive me, Crisis on Infinite Earths appeared in 1985 and its issues were dated for 1985-86. It was Batman: Year One that appeared 1986-87 in issues dated for 1987."

Luke Blanchard replied to John Dunbar (the mod of maple)'s discussion DC's Omnibus line - Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collections
"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…"

Luke Blanchard replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion Comic book sales trends in 2016
"Thanks for posting that. The author's point about the personal nature of kids' reading is interesting. I think it explains why there's a place for comics in a world with TV. They're visual like TV, but more personal."

Henry K has asked me to relay an invitation to you:  I'd appreciate it if you could let Luke Blanchard, Phillip Portelli, and anyone else who posted in my "NEW GODS", "WESTERNS" and "BIBLE" threads know about my KIRBY LAND group.

After a Jack Kirby Fan Group forum was hijacked by an unscrupulous individual on Facebook, Henry began his own forum, titled "Kirbyland" where he, and like-minded individuals continue to promote their beliefs on Facebook.    

He wanted you to know.
