It’s always cause for celebration when Dan Cunningham posts one of his extremely detailed and well-researched posts on Disney comics (lower-case “c”), or Disney Comics (upper-case “C”), accompanied by a comprehensive look at the times and events that shaped them!
Today, Dan undertakes what we (thanks to longtime friend Dana Gabbard) have come to call “The Disney Implosion”.
|Is this the FIRST "Disney Implosion"? From UNCLE SCROOGE # 82 (Cover date: August, 1969)|
Dan's focus is not merely the infamous and abrupt 1991 gutting of the briefly great line of Disney Comics (upper-case “C”) that began a mere 18 months earlier – but, as noted above, also the conditions leading to said “gutting”. Dan provides vital perspective to those who “weren’t there” and a needed memory jog to those who were.
