Cover Date: December 1977
Cover Price: US $ 0.75

Issue Tagline: None.

Format: Black & White; Fanzine; 30 pages

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Letters Column: None this issue.

Synopsis:
News from comic book publishers with detailed information and a multitude of cover reproductions for the March 1978 cover-dated comics.

The highlight of the issue is a 1977 interview with DC's PR man MIKE GOLD. The five-page interview crowds out some regular features (such as TCR Mailboat), but RONA BLABBIT's Media News column is present and packed with tidbits from Tinseltown.

Notes:
The front cover boasts "one of JIM STARLIN's first drawings of the Man of Steel." The back cover features "DOUG HERRING's rendition of Kandor's Nightwing and Flamebird."

Synopsis:
Rona Blabbit reporting on Autumn 1977 goings on in media, including word that "STAR TREK is starting filming in a couple of weeks" and that "Leonard Nimoy, snubbed by the new STAR TREK, has instead signed to do THE INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS with Donald Sutherland. Also of interest among the many, many items here is that "pre-production on STAR WARS II (or THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK) is scheduled to begin in November 1978" and that ITC Films is looking to make a LONE RANGER feature film.

Blabbit closes with an insightful, thorough review of the premiere episode of CBS-TV's THE INCREDIBLE HULK.

Synopsis:
The fascinating and frank first half of an extensive interview with DC Comics' Public Relations Director MIKE GOLD conducted by Nick Landau and Mike Tiefenbacher. (Among the candid statements is Gold's blunt criticism of Carmine Infantino's tenure as editor at DC, observing "He made a lot of decisions that are inexplicable by today's standards. ... Carmine Infantino made a lot of foolish moves at DC, quite frankly. He cancelled a lot of good books that were making money.")

The interview concludes in TCR #152 (Jan. 1978).

Notes:
Originally published in COMIC MEDIA NEWS.
