When did it officially change its name to DC Comics?[edit]

The Golden Age section indicates that the name "DC Comics" was used colloquially for years before the official adoption of it as its name, but when was it officially adopted? I think that would be an important detail to mention in the article, so if anyone knows of a reliable source that pins that date down, it should go in. Nightscream (talk) 14:31, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

The name was legally changed in 1976. I'll try to find a source for it. Mtminchi08 (talk) 17:34, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Actually it was 1977 according to Bloomberg Businessweek as seen here. I've added this citation to the article.

Issue #1 renumbering[edit]

Does anyone know what all the 52 titles are that are getting changed to #1? Does it also include Detective and Action? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chartered Wombat (talkcontribs) 05:09, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

[edit]

Are we going to mention the newest logo somewhere?

Today's edit[edit]

I see that Wrightston did begin in 1968 at DC and not later, as I had originally thought and had written in the edit summary. But I still can't confirm yet that he was recruited by Infantino. In fact, I think it's probably worth checking to see if Adams and Ditko were "recruited," since those aren't cited either. These artists may simply have gone to DC on their own and were not specifically sought out and brought in by Infantino. It may be simply that the word "recruited" is imprecise. --Tenebrae (talk) 18:28, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

What is a printing-plant owner?[edit]

in the article we can read: "In 1937, in debt to printing-plant owner and magazine distributor Harry Donenfeld —..."

What is a printing-plant owner? 81.173.172.240 (talk) 15:57, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Simply put, it's a person who owns a printing plant. WaxTadpole (talk) 18:58, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Infobox Picture[edit]

The logo which is used in the infobox is the previous logo. I think we should use the new logo to be up-to-date (The 2012-present one). -- Zinthos7 (talk) 09:14, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
