Seriously, though, this issue finds Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston talking up recalls of comic book print runs from bygone eras. From the infamous Elseworlds 80-Page Giant to a certain issue of Doctor Strange to the unlicensed restaurant-based comic Halle the Hooters Girl, many a comic book has been halted at the printer, recalled from retail, or otherwise brought back from publishers.
The reasons for comic book recalls are varied, mostly printing or paper cutting errors on the part of the printer. However, some recalls stand out because of knee-jerk reactions by overly sensitive publishers or content that may have been beyond the ideal age range of certain books. Join your hosts as they examine some of the more striking recalls in comic book history.
