Making a Splash: DC Comics 40 Years Ago This Month, July 1975
Greetings, Groove-ophiles! In a post last month, Ol' Groove rapped about how hard it was to find comics when my family moved from Harlan to Knox County. Well, by July, the situation was well in hand. There was one store in town (hooray) and three in the next town over (Corbin) that sold comics! Yes! I had to do some walking, but t'was well worth it! I was able to get my greasy paws on each and every mag I wanted, as long as I timed things right! So while July 1975 was hot outside, it was cool inside with a pile of DC mags like these...
