Believe it or not, there was a time when you could pick up a comicbook and tell what company published it. Not based on the character, logo, or indicia, but based on the style of art and writing. Just check out these DC Comics splash pages from December, 1973. There's no way you could mistake these for Marvels, baby! (And no, that is not a put down!)
Can you dig it? Adams, Aparo, Alcala, Cockrum, Kirby, Kubert, Novick, Nino, Swan, Wrightson, and so many other Groovy Age Greats, just sitting there on the spinner-rack waiting for us to plunk down two thin dimes... Ol' Groove ain't jivin' when he says the 70s were far-out, baby!
