    I don't agree.

    EC Comics still exists as a corporation; unless I'm horribly mistaken, its name is still in the indicia of new issues of MAD. The corporation may be owned now by Time-Warner, and...

    Yes, that is an oversimplification (that I am probably guilty of propagating). What really limited comic-book publishers well into the 1980s was the cost of more elaborate separations, and budgets...

    I wasn't aware of the addition of the 75% value. Was that for all the books, or just the Baxter/Prestige/New Format books?

    Thank you for bringing this to the discussion!

    Prevailing practice was to have cyan at 100%, 50%, and 25%; magenta at 100%, 50%, and 25%, and yellow at 100%, 50%, and 25% (an early issue...

    Recoloring comics in reprint is not a new thing. From the start, when publishers started saving film, they tended to save only the film for the black plate. They probably figured it would be cheaper...

    There are two problems, as I understand it, with digital. Neither is insurmountable, but both can be labor-intensive to overcome.

    You have asked such a broad question!

    There is no one answer that covers all of comics history. There have in fact been, broadly, three means of reprinting comics since the periodical comic as we...

    (How to answer?) There was no "ending" to Lee's & Kirby's Fantastic Four or Thor runs in any sense except that, one day, Kirby was gone, and a couple of years later, Lee was gone. On the other hand,...

    There is a lot to admire in Kirby's Fourth World title, and in his other work during his 1970–75 run at DC.
