Doug: I think it's a safe bet around here that we have a lot of Marvel Team-Up and Marvel Two-In-One fans. Because Karen and I aren't as privy to Bronze Age DC's, we've obviously been delinquent in our DC Comics Presents and Brave and the Bold reviews -- but I'm sure we have readers with fond memories of those series as well. Looking at the stars of those magazines, Spider-Man, the Thing, Superman, and Batman, respectively, it's pretty easy to see how Marvel and DC used their superstars to market those four books.
Doug: But, if you could have started another mag back in the day, how would you have run it? Pick a lead character from each company who you'd have used as the headliner and let us know why you chose him or her. Or, maybe you'd have run the book potpourri-style, just throwing characters from all over each universe together (as in DC's recent reincarnation of The Brave and the Bold). Do you have any interesting team-ups in mind? Speaking of what has gone before, did you like your team-ups to be somewhat logical, or did you go more for the offbeat adventures (Batman and Kamandi, for example)?
As always, thanks for playing!
