I Bought tons of these DCs as a kid... Even the 64 page square bound "GIANTS" for 50c that came Jan 75 as I recall.. Then shrunk to 48 page staple bound "Giant" s in '76... Blowing up to the all new 80 page "Dollar Comics" in Jan '77. OK I stop there , Funny how I remember the format over the content...

----Yet Another 70 s comics kid
