Synopsis:
A brief column from Rona Blabbitt this month, noting that the STAR TREK television project has been put on hold and is again being considered for a feature film. ("So who knows if we'll ever see STAR TREK again?" bemoans Blabbit, but we did two years later.) Rona reports that both LOGAN'S RUN and MAN FROM ATLANTIS have been canceled. Other noteworthy news is that John Newland is reviving his ONE STEP BEYOND series for syndication under the title THE NEXT STEP BEYOND, and that on tap for a four-week tryout in January is a series called LUCAN.

Synopsis:
The concluding half of Nick Landau and Mike Tiefenbacher's insightful interview with DC's Public Relations Director MIKE GOLD.

In a quotation that turned out to be prophetic, was Gold's response to Landau's question, "how do you see DC in three year's time?" Gold responds with a number of speculations on formats and pricing, adding, "There will probably be fewer titles around." Less than a year later the DC Implosion would see in excess of 20 titles abruptly canceled.
