DC Saved Marvel in The Silver Age5794

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
In the mid-1950's DC Comics helped Marvel Comics when they suddenly found themselves without a way to distribute their books and magazines.

It's a pretty fascinating time in comic book history, right around the time of Frederic Wertham's influence among other things.

I made this video to tell the tale of that time. I have a second video publishing tomorrow which talks about the mid-80s when Marvel Comics was on the verge of publishing DC's big titles, saving them from horrible sales numbers.

check it out if you're at all interested in comic book history. I'll put on part 2 tomorow.




PART 2:

All this was going on and I was just going along buying my
regular favorites and wondering why I couldn't always find them.

Thank you! I’m glad you found it interesting
Honestly I wasn’t sure people would be as interested in this side of the hobby as me but I’m happy that people are
