Monday Trending Topics: 72 Years Is An Eternity In Comics

It’s pretty fun to see DC bringing back the classic Quality Comics title National Comics this July, about 72 years after it originally debuted.  Of course, Kid Eternity is also a Quality character (and we’ve seen Quality-related titles The Ray and Blackhawks in the New 52 — and even a Plastic Man reference, I think), DC acquired the line in the mid-1950s and has used numerous of the characters and titles since then.  And of course you know that I never miss a chance to mention golden age and silver age material in trending topics  (and fortunately, comics news rarely leaves me lacking the opportunity for long), so I’m hoping that National Comics will keep the Quality connection going with subsequent issues (Uncle Sam, anyone?).
