The company was originally three companies, National Allied Publications, Detective Comics, and All-American Publications.

They take themselves much more seriously at National for some ridiculous reason that's beyond me. Where Marvel will call their magazine FOOM, spend six months trying to get people interested in what FOOM means, and it turns out to be "Friends of Ol' Marvel", with "old" spelled "o-l-apostrophe"...

 Joel Hayward's Website: Joel Hayward, ZDaF, BA, MA Hons, PhD
Fresh from his very public victory over David Irving (a controversial figure in German historiography of the 1930s and 1940s) in a high profile London court case in April 2000 wherein Irving was found to have falsified historical evidence, Evans submitted a 71 page report trenchantly condemning the thesis.
There were people whose passions had evidently been aroused by the affair and the extensive publicity it had received, and these had recourse to informal and sinister methods of expressing their anger.
It submitted that the thesis was dishonest, the award of Hayward's MA should be revoked, and all University of Canterbury endorsement of Hayward's work towards the MA be withdrawn and by implication that the Hayward thesis be removed from the university library. /thehistorynowarticle.htm

By 1964-1965, when the first comic book conventions were held, it was clear that comic fandom was an ongoing phenomenon with no end in sight...
The C.F.A. is a not-for-profit entity established by Bill Schelly in 1992, so collect and preserve fanzines, books, photographs, movies and other memorabilia from what he deemed "the Golden Age of Comic Fandom," the period from 1961 to 1972.

 Camelot In Four Colors: Sources and Resources: A Brief History of the American Comic Book Industry
Both the majors and independents began producing comics in less ephemeral formats than the traditional newsprint periodicals, with hardcover and trade paperback "graphic novels" and reprints of earlier stories becoming commonplace.
Public concern over the effect of crime and horror comics on young readers came to a head in 1954 with the publication of Dr. Frederic Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent and an investigation of comic books by the U. Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency.
This action may have saved the industry from immediate ruin, but it is also widely considered to have had a severely detrimental effect on the creative development of the comic book in America. /history.htm

he conclusions found in the 1947 Action were upheld in 1974 when Siegel and Shuster sued National Periodical Publications et al, again, over the copyright to Superman and Superboy.
In the course of the actual trial, it was found that Detective’s Superboy stories and series were based on Siegel’s November, 1938 letter, that Superboy was a work distinct from Superman, that publication of Superboy without Siegel’s permission was illegal, and that Siegel was the owner of Superboy.
As such, the Siegels ask for an injunction while the action is pending, in order to prevent DC from continuing to use and exploit the character of Superboy. /DC/Superman/SuperboyCompl.htm

The resulting company was officially named National Comics (later National Periodical Publications), but used "DC", which stood for "Detective Comics", in its logo.
In 1976, the name of the company, now just a division of the media empire, was officially changed from National Periodicals, which nobody ever called it anyway, to DC Comics.
In 1967, DC — by that time, America's largest comic book publisher — was itself acquired by Kinney National Services, which changed its name to Warner Communications a year later, when it later bought the Warner Bros. movie studio. /dc.htm

 Justice Society Profile: The Flash
National Periodical Publications revived his name and his superpowers for a new character who debuted in Showcase #4, September-October 1956.
This new Flash, Barry Allen, would lead to a rebirth of National Periodical Publications' superhero line, which in turn would lead to the rebirth of other superhero lines at other companies.
The third was Quicksilver (now called Max Mercury by DC Comics), a Quality Comics character who first appeared in November 1940 in National Comics #5. /~canote/flash.html

 Phobos Entertainment - Corporate Bios - James C. Shooter

He was trained on the job as a creator, editor and manager of creative organizations by chief editor and executive VP Mort Weisinger, who was responsible not only for the success of the comics, but also for the development of Superman, Batman and other properties for film, television and licensing. /corporate/bios/shooter.html

 Batman TV Show, Green Hornet, Mr. Terrific, Captain Nice
As 1964 rolled around, National Periodical Publications (also known as DC Comics) was poised to make a momentous decision.
By the fall of '66, Batman was the number-one show in the nation but adult ratings had dropped to half what they once were.
The key to Batman was in the lead actors playing outlandishly fantastic situations with a straight face, and the stunt-casting of hot TV personalities like Julie Newmar (as the Catwoman) along with aging movie icons like Cesar Romero (as the Joker) and Frank Gorshin (as the Riddler). /fallbatman.html

After foiling the efforts of the Deliverer, an international criminal, to levitate Earth's national monuments into orbit, they follow the disc jockey into space and defeat an alien being who bad been holding him captive while directing the actions of the Deliverer on the planet below.
After an initial period during which they devoted themselves mainly to tackling cases involving teenage concerns the Teen Titans entered the 1970s by beginning a second phase in which they became involved first with relevant social issues, and later with supernatural menaces, under the direction of an adult supervisor, wealthy philanthropist Loren Jupiter.
During this period, they added several new members to their roster, including the Hawk and the Dove, the precognitive Lilith, and Mal, their first black member. /source/index/indextt1.html

You'll realize quickly that this amendment may have been intended to institute a national principle for the future, but it also looked to the newborn nation's immediate future and fears concerning its ability to survive.
Not only did the Framers understand that Great Britain was not decisively defeated -- she still was uncontested on the seas and would prove, but too much later, her ability to mount another transoceanic offensive -- but factions were beginning to arise within the new government, thereby posing threats to freedom of thought and expression.

 The Golden Age of the Justice Society of America
All-American Comics Inc. was a separate company from National Periodical Publications Inc., with its own offices and its own staff.
In 1939 Jack Leibowitz, Harry Donenfield's partner at National Comics, wanted to expand their line; however, Donenfield felt that the four magazines they were currently publishing were enough.
Despite the high price tag, it would prove to be a very worthwhile investment for National, for it would be the revival of two All-American characters (The Flash and Green Lantern) that would spark the Silver Age. /~canote/ga.html
