How about comic book stories being re.ade by new regeimes, or the same one, after the original version? The most famous here might be Mort Wesinger's remakes of earlier Superman stories. Did this practice on Superman predate Mort's tenure?
The theory that comic book readers turn over every five - If that!!!!!!! - helped spur remakes.,
...I'm told the 40s WONDER EOMAN newspaper strip ran remakes so similar to the original comic book stories that they've been mistaken for cut-up actual reprints! When Robert Kanigher regained WONDER WOMAN in the early 70s, he did remakes.
...I actually was asking about some things, directly or implicitly, here. Doesn't anybody know anything?
