DEFINITELY COLLECTABLE - DYNAMIC CLASSICS #1...


Images copyright DC COMICS

If ever a comic mag lived up to its name, it was DYNAMIC
CLASSICS #1.  Reprinting the BATMAN tale from DETECTIVE
COMICS #395 (the first pairing of writer DENNY O'NEIL and artist
NEAL ADAMS), and #437's MANHUNTER story (artist WALTER
SIMONSON's 'breakthrough' strip, written by ARCHIE GOODWIN),
this issue was intended to be the first of an ongoing series.  Unfortunately
however, as far as I can determine, no other issues  ever followed, and it
remains in splendid isolation as the perfect example of a classic comic-
book.  This is one that you should Definitely Collect (see what I
did there?), so straight on to eBay with you!

The book was cancelled as a result of the "DC Implosion" of 1978.
You can see the unpublished cover for #2 here...

and the stoy of the Implosion itself here...
