@Don-El can tell us about the rueful day the DC Implosion caused Jim Starlin to take his name off of this issue when it got cut from 25 to 23 pages… without informing him, first,
The horror continues in this issue!!! Of course, this all takes place in the wake of the original idea being to do the entire story as a one-shot limited collector’s edition-- like the one Mike Grell got to do with Paul levitz.
Oh yes the DC Implosion that Scholars have been studying for decades!
Could it happen yet again?
Some would argue that the pandemic implosion is already occurring
Look, @Don-El!! Erg-1 survived being a “One-Shot Hero!!”
Thanks for sharing the color version of the cover, @MisfitMarvelElf ! Sadly, this comic is not in our Digital collection here on DC Universe, and Grandpa Don-el only owns the black and white newsprint paper Showcase version ( I might start using them as coloring books with my fancy colored pencils, so tempting…)
Yes, why bother digitizing some of the earliest Dave Cockrum artwork and have it available to us in color, that would be a terrible thing obviously hee hee hee… not to mention this particular story continues the development of the Wildfire character. Fun cover here by Nick Cardy.
Coming in Januray
Tsk, tsk, what is this Modern Comics 35 cents cover we are using?
This actually is digitized here on DC Universe!
The issue that was advertised as going biweekly-- and then it didn’t happen.
