DC Special

 DCSC   (DC, 1968-1971, 1975-1977)

™ and ©1971 DC Comics, Inc.

DC Special was an series of double-sized issues spotlighting different parts of the DC universe. One issue, for example, might consist of adventure stories from the early days of The Brave and the Bold, featuring heroes like the Viking Prince, the Silent Knight, and Robin Hood. Other issues centered around topics ranging from strange sports tales to the origins of Golden Age heroes. Virtually all of this material was reprinted from early DC comics, but at around 25˘ for 68 pages of reading, DC Special was a superior reading bargain.
