Dollar Comics Crisis

 

It’s no coincidence why these titles were chosen to lead off. Hush is coming as an animated movie, while Batwoman and Crisis will be featured on the CW.

Longtime readers may recall the last iteration of Dollar Comics, which weren’t reprints but 64 pages with no ads. Batman Family, Superman Family, World’s Finest, and others shared the designation from 1977 until the line was cancelled in 1983.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
