    National Allied published NEW FUN which became MORE FUN and then MORE FUN COMICS. The second title was NEW COMICS which became NEW ADVENTURE COMICS and then ADVENTURE COMICS.

    Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson's National Allied then wanted to publish a third ongoing, DETECTIVE COMICS, but they didn't have the money so a deal was made with Harry Donenfeld and DETECTIVE COMICS came out. So that's where DC comes from. The fourth ongoing was ACTION COMICS.

    Next Max Gaines made a deal with Donenfeld and his partner Jack Liebowitz to get his own comic publishing business off the ground--known as All-American. This involved a distribution and advertising deal with National/DC--similar to what happened with Wildstorm. Gaines came out with ALL-AMERICAN COMICS and the short-lived MOVIE COMICS.

    DC also had one-shot specials like NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR. Then they gave SUPERMAN his own try-out title. Gaines secured the rights to publish MUTT & JEFF.

    The next big title from All-American was FLASH COMICS--which featured the Flash and Hawkman, among other super-stars. With the success of SUPERMAN, DC next launched BATMAN. Meanwhile All-American launched the anthology ALL STAR COMICS--featuring its most popular heroes and some of DC's favourites (but not Superman and Batman)--a significant amalgamation of both pubishers' interests.

    The success of a second big NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR COMICS (not to mention ALL STAR) spurred DC to launch WORLD'S BEST COMICS--renamed WORLD'S FINEST COMICS with the second issue.
    While All-American gave the Flash his own quarterly magazine--ALL-FLASH QUARTERLY.

    DC finally launched a new monthly ongoing (as opposed to the quarterlies it had launched), STAR SPANGLED COMICS. And All-American launched its own new monthly ongoing, SENSATION COMICS and another quarterly--GREEN LANTERN. And then DC tried to do its own kind of ALL STAR COMICS with LEADING COMICS.

    After that All-American launched PICTURE STORIES FROM THE BIBLE, COMIC CAVALCADE and WONDER WOMAN. And DC gave the BOY COMMANDOS their own book and they went the humour route with ALL FUNNY COMICS. And not to be outdone, All-American launched FUNNY STUFF. There was also a big one-shot comic called THE BIG ALL-AMERICAN COMIC BOOK. On top of that All-American got the rights to publish ED WHELAN'S JOKE BOOK (featuring Fat & Slatt) and they came out with their own teen humour hero (a la Archie), BUZZY.

    DC secured the rights to the Fox & the Crow and published them in REAL SCREEN FUNNIES.

    And that takes us to the end of World War II.

    Boy, all of this makes me wish that 1.) DC would resume its collection of Golden Age material in their Archive format and 2.) that DC would bring back the World War Two era Justice Society of America (with Roy Thomas writing!)

    I just wish they would use those archive editions to make digital versions for Comixology.
