115 - What The Internet Used To Look Like - Week of 6/6/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the "DC Implosion" on its 40th anniversary. One of DC's darkest hours, back in the 1970s the company tried to snatch market share back from Marvel, and it chose the wrong time to act, as we discuss. We talk about some fascinating implications, and make a snarky joke or two. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Trade pile - Norman, I Hate Fairyland, Postal (my pile is a bit dark)
Family time - most of them don't do comics, but there's a nephew who gets it
Found a comic sale and had a blast
Not much other than planning some future episodes :-)

If you want to read more on this, the Wikipedia page has some links you can check out, including the Jenette Khan column that was meant to intro the "Explosion." And the idea of Les owning Marvel is mind-blowing to say the least, right? ;-)
