    DC was my favorite because they were so noble, and then sometimes goofy. Super-Pets!

  2. I was OK with the Super-Pets until Super-Monkey.

    I recall that a major factor in my gravitating towards DC instead of Marvel (aside from the fact that DC had Batman) was that DC’s were done-in-one.

    This was around 1974, you understand. I got my comics kind of erratically. Just for example, I got Batman #251, 257, 259 and 261 when they came out. Issue 251, with “The Joker’s Five-Way Revenge” by Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams, is dated September 1973, and #261 is March 1975 (Batman was a bi-monthly 100-pager from #254-261). #257 didn’t continue from #256 and didn’t continue on into #258, so it didn’t matter that I wouldn’t own those issues for another four or five years. #259 featured The Shadow, but it didn’t continue into the Shadow title DC then published.

    Marvel, on the other hand, seemed to always be in the middle of a story. “What’s going on here?” *See ish 75!–Mad Marv. “But I don’t have #75.” Too bad, True Believer!

    So, yeah, DC exclusively until I discovered the Claremont/Byrne X-Men in 1980…

    • Paul,

      You are SO right about the DC ‘done-in-one’ and thanks for reminding me. I remember the first 2-part DC Comic I read, it was a Legion Of Superheroes story in which the Legion was outlawed. Don’t remember the number (I was only 2 or so at the time…heh) but I recall being shocked that the story did not end in one issue.
