Having received reliable information that copyrights for Fawcett/Marvel material post-1951 had been renewed, we are pulling those titles. It appears that in 1977 when CBS bought Fawcett, they began renewing titles which were up for renewal -- this was NOT done by DC, who did not own the copyrights in the first place, but by CBS, Inc. While I doubt that CBS really gives a rat's ass...we do.
Orders already placed will be honored (because they are already in process and could not be stopped if we wanted to), but no future orders for post-1951 Marvel material can be taken. We are reviewing our entire Fawcett/Marvel line and may have to wipe it all out and start from scratch. This is going to be unsettling to many readers, and it will definitely hurt our business, but we are dedicated to publishing ONLY public domain, legal material. We may have to remove earlier material as well -- I am sorry, but we have to be legal.
If you have any questions about specific books, please let me know. It will take about 24 hours to make these changes.
I am sorry in advance for any inconvenience.
