    Here's a couple of ads for DC's Tabloid Editions from 1975. They were actually called "Super-Size" in the ads, but that name never seemed to catch on with the fans as DC editorial called them "tabloids," and Marvel fans called them by Marvel's name, "Treasury Editions."





    This tabloid ad below the subscription ad highlights a Super-Size edition that never actually came out -- King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. If these pages exist somewhere, it would be nice to see the book finally published.

    I was really looking forward to the King Arthur comic, but nothing else was ever announced. I can only imagine it would have been just as good as the Bible--which I was also hoping to see get another volume. Nestor Redondo was one of my favourite artists. But I've never seen any pages from this abandoned project, although some must have existed.

    Long before the Comics Code Authority, comic book publishers worried about their public image. Max Gaines, who seemed to be as interested in educating his readers as entertaining them, was instrumental in bringing in an Editorial Advisory Board for all the books under the DC umbrella. This is how he first met with William Moulton Marston, who was one of the illustrious personages on DC's Editorial Advisory Board.

    The board members were promoted on the inside front cover--this one from ADVENTURE COMICS No. 68 (November 1941).



    DC was not alone in gathering a bunch of elites to staff their Editorial Advisory Board. Other comics publishers did the same. As you can see with CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES No. 22 (March 26, 1943), Fawcett's Board was well-stacked with luminaries--with no less than Eleanor Roosevelt, Admiral Byrd, Reverand Tynan--as well as Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, who played a dubious role as the Dionne quintuplet's physician, but at the time was still famous and not infamous in that position.



    Not to be outdone, DC would add other famous names to their Board, including Pearl S. Buck, as recorded on this inside front cover page for WONDER WOMAN No. 21 (January-February 1947).



    I wonder just what the incentive was for these renowned figures to lend their names to the funny books.

    Lt. Commander Gene Tunney and his old rival Jack Dempsey made peace over Wonder Woman, for issues 1 and 2 of SENSATION COMICS. Tunney's letter was first used in the house ad for the debut issue



    And the Fighting Marine's missive was published on the inside front cover page for issue 1.


    A letter from Dempsey appeared in the same place of honour for the 2nd ish.


    Not to be outdone, the inside front cover for issue 3 had a champion letter and I quote:

    Dear Mr. Gaines:

    I saw what your good friends, Gene Tunney and Jack Dempsey said about WONDER WOMAN in SENSATION COMICS #1 and #2. It certainly was swell of them.

    Would you like to know what the other characters in SENSATION COMICS think of her?

    Well, MR. TERRIFIC, THE GAY GHOST, THE BLACK PIRATE, LITTLE BOY BLUE and I think she’s absolutely “the tops”, and we’re all mighty proud to appear in SENSATION COMICS with her every month!

    Sincerely yours,
    TED GRANT (Heavyweight
    Champion, alias WILDCAT)
    Now that was a long set up for a punchline!
