Bruce BerryPublication informationPublisherDC ComicsScheduleMonthlyFormatOngoing seriesPublication dateApril 1975 – April 1976No. of issues13Creative teamWritten byList[show]Artist(s)List[show]Penciller(s)List[show]Inker(s)List[show]1st Issue Special was a comics anthology series from DC Comics, done in a similar style to their Showcase series. It was published from April 1975 to April 1976.[1] The goal was to showcase a new possible first issue of an ongoing series each month, with some issues debuting new characters and others reviving dormant series from DC's past. No series were actually launched from 1st Issue Special but Warlord made his first appearance in the title and the character's ongoing series was already slated to debut a few months later.Contents [hide] 1Publication history2List of stories and credits3Collected editions4See also5References6External linksPublication history[edit]Writer Gerry Conway explained the series' origin: "1st Issue Special was a peculiar book concept based on [publisher] Carmine Infantino’s observation that first issues of titles often sold better than subsequent issues. Carmine’s brainstorm: a monthly series of nothing but first issues. It sounds like a joke, but he was dead serious."[2]Conway has also denied that 1st Issue Special was a tryout series, pointing out that tryout series run each feature for several issues so that the publisher has enough time to get sales figures before deciding whether to give the feature its own series; since each feature in 1st Issue Special ran only one issue, DC would have had to either launch the new series before sales figures came in for the tryout (thus making the feature's appearance in 1st Issue Special pointless) or launch the new series six months or more after the tryout issue (by which time reader interest in the feature would have faded).[3] Conway added, "We used to sit at editorial meetings and [Carmine Infantino] would say, 'Who has an idea for 1st Issue Special next month?' How do you develop a project that has a potential to be a real series within 20 days? You can't."[3] Only two of the 1st Issue Special features received an ongoing series: Mike Grell's The Warlord, which first appeared in issue #8 (November 1975),[4] and Gerry Conway and Mike Vosburg's Return of the New Gods, which appeared in issue #13.[2]Issues #1 (featuring Atlas) featured art and story by Jack Kirby.[5] A number of issues featured existing DC characters: issue #3, Metamorpho, issue #5, Manhunter,[6] issue #7, the Creeper, issue #9, the Golden Agecharacter Doctor Fate, and issue #13, the New Gods.[3] The Metamorpho feature reunited the character's creators, writer Bob Haney and artist Ramona Fradon. Haney and Fradon had met at the 1974 San Diego Comic-Con, and while reminiscing, it emerged that both of them regarded Metamorpho as one of the features they'd most enjoyed working on, leading them to ask DC if they could do one more Metamorpho story together.[3] 1st Issue Special staff have not been able to answer why the Creeper story was illustrated but not written by the character's creator, Steve Ditko.[3]Issue #12 featured a new Starman character which would later be used in James Robinson's 1990s series focused on the character Jack Knight.[3] The character was a supporting player in Justice League: Cry for Justicein 2010.Some stories which had been intended for publication in 1st Issue Special appeared in other titles instead. A Batgirl and Robin team-up was published in Batman Family #1 (September–October 1975)[3] and a Green Arrowand Black Canary story was kept in inventory until it was published as a backup feature in Green Lantern #100 (January 1978).[7]1st Issue Special never printed a letters column, instead accompanying each feature with a "Story Behind the Story" text page.[3]List of stories and credits[edit]Issue #DateFeatured Character and Story TitleWriterArtists1April 1975AtlasJack KirbyJack Kirby and D.

In 1969 and 1970 Redondo did a four-page serial Mga Kasaysayang Buhat sa Bibliya (Tales from the Bible) in each issue of Superyor Komiks Magasin, which was produced by his own company, Nestor Redondo Publications. This company launched a program of on-the-job training for young writers and artists.[2][3]American work[edit]In the 1970s, Redondo began to do work for publishers in the United States. His earliest U.S. credit is penciling and inking the ten-page story "The King Is Dead", by writer Jack Oleck, in DC Comics' House of Mystery #194 (Sept. 1971).[7] Through the 1970s, Redondo drew dozens of such supernatural anthology stories for DC titles including House of Secrets, The Phantom Stranger, Secrets of Sinister House, The Unexpected, Weird War Tales, and The Witching Hour.[7] He drew six of the seven issues of Rima, the Jungle Girl (May 1974 - March 1975),[8] based on the heroine of a Victorian novel,[9] as well as Swamp Thing #11-23 (Aug. 1974 - July 1976),[10] and DC's tabloid-sized one-shot collection of Bible stories, cover-titled The Bible but officially titled Limited Collectors' Edition #C-36 (July 1975).[11] Nestor Redondo and his brother Frank Redondo (b. 1942, d. 2010) often collaborated and credited together as the "Redondo Studio" most notably on the Ragman series for DC.[12][13][14]Panel, DC Comics' Rima, the Jungle Girl #6 (Feb.-March 1975). Art by Redondo.In 1970, Redondo was approached by Vincent Fago of Pendulum Press to illustrate stories in their new line of comic book adaptations of literary classics. Redondo offered to help Fago recruit some of his fellow Filipino comics artists, which he did;[15] these artists ended up illustrating almost every comic Pendulum produced. From 1973–1979, Redondo illustrated many stories in the Pendulum Illustrated Classics line, including Dracula and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde adaptations reprinted by Marvel Comics three years later as Marvel Classics Comics.[7] Other adaptations illustrated by Redondo for Pendulum included The Great Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, some Edgar Allan Poestories, The Odyssey, and Romeo and Juliet. In addition, Redondo illustrated a Pendulum comic book history of the American Civil War, and biographies of Madame Curie, Albert Einstein, and Abraham Lincoln.In the mid-1980s, Redondo inked the Eclipse Comics time-travel series Aztec Ace, by writer Doug Moench and pencilers Michael Hernandez and Dan Day. In 1990, he contributed to the second issue of the Marvel Comics superhero series Solarman as well as to an issue of Innovation Comics' Legends of the Stargrazers.[7] Redondo collaborated with Roy Thomas on an adaptation of Robert E. Howard's Marchers of Valhalla in the mid-1990s, but the finished comic book never saw print.Christian comics[edit]More regularly, Redondo contributed to various Christian comics. In addition to the DC Comics' 1975 one-shot collection of Bible stories, Redondo illustrated Marx, Lenin, Mao and Christ, published in 1977 by Open Doors (and reprinted in 2010 by Calvary Comics); Pendulum's Ben-Hur, published in 1978; Born Again Comics #2 (featuring the story of Filipino actor-turned-evangelist Fred Galang) in 1988; Aida-Zee, Behold 3-D, and Christian Comics & Games #0 and #1, produced in the 1990s by The Nate Butler Studio. Redondo was a panelist for the first Christian comics panel discussion of the San Diego Comic Convention in 1992.[16]In preparation for the First International Christian Comics Training Conference in Tagaytay, the Philippines in January 1996, Redondo wrote On Realistic Illustration for his main teaching session, but died before he was able to deliver it personally.[16] Redondo was living in Los Angeles County, California, at the time of his death.[1]Awards[edit]In 1979, Redondo received the Inkpot Award at the San Diego Comic Convention.[17]Bibliography[edit]Continuity Comics[edit]The Revengers Featuring Megalith #3 (1986)DC Comics[edit]The Amazing World of DC Comics #6 (two pages) (1975)Ghosts #8, 13 (1972–1973)G.I.

Simonson recalls, "We'd get together at 3 a.m. They'd come up and we'd have popcorn and sit around and talk about whatever a 26, 27 and 20-year-old guys talk about. Our art, TV, you name it. I pretty much knew at the time, 'These are the good ole days.'"[5]Milgrom came to prominence as a penciller on Captain Marvel from 1975 to 1977.

In 1991, he wrote a story arc for The Amazing Spider-Man[13] and collaborated with Danny Fingeroth on The Deadly Foes of Spider-Man limited series.[14]Milgrom has been a prolific inker, working on most of Marvel's line.
