Greg at Howling Curmudgeons reports that not only does the new 1970s Justice Society collection not have an introduction or afterword (expected, if they’re trying to cut costs on historical material), they actually went to the effort of erasing credits on the reprinted story pages where they appeared.
What’s going on? DC’s collected editions department was traditionally pretty good in providing this kind of information. I just talked about Superman vs. the Flash, for instance, which credits everything. Taking out credits isn’t laziness or cost-cutting; that’s trying to rewrite history.
What do they want people to not know? Are they eliminating erroneous earlier credits or trying to avoid correct information that might affect ownership or reprint rights?
