Media Release -- In 1978, DC Comics implemented a bold initiative to combat plummeting sales: Give readers more story pages with a higher cover price, to better compete on newsstands. This "DC Explosion" brought with it many creative new titles, but just weeks after its launch, they pulled the plug, cancelling numerous titles and leaving stacks of completed comic book stories unpublished. It quickly became known as "The DC Implosion", and TwoMorrows Publishing marks the 40th Anniversary of one of the most notorious events in comics with an exhaustive oral history from the creators involved (Jenette Kahn, Paul Levitz, Len Wein, Mike Gold, and others), plus detailed analysis of how it changed the landscape of comics forever! By Keith Dallas and John Wells.

From Woodstock to "The Banana Splits," from "Sgt. Pepper" to "H.R. Pufnstuf," from Altamont to "The Partridge Family," it's a psychedelic pop-culture trip that doesn't require any dangerous chemicals.
