    This was the era in which I originally shed my Marvel Zombie proclivities and basically discovered DC.

    I had the same reaction as Hatut Zeraze. Most of the reasons are that DC post Crisis changed their "look" to more resemble what I liked in Marvel

    DC's revamp of Superman got rid of many of the Silver Age additions that felt silly to me. The revamp got rid of the silliness and made it more like the Marvel titles I enjoyed. And I saw that writers and artists that I liked at Marvel were now doing DC work, which led me to read them. As I read these, I branched out to other characters and titles that looked interesting. Justice League no longer reminded me of the god awful Superfriends cartoon, but seemed like a genuinely funny book that made me care about the characters. The Flash had Wally West as a sympathetic character who was trying to live up to the memory of his uncle. Suicide Squad had a killer story hook and each issue was filled with amazing moments that kept me hooked. Books like Swamp Thing and Doom Patrol showed me that comics could contain horror, wild sci fi, or mind bending fantasy.

    I also have to say that post Crisis, DC made an effort to make their titles accessible with easy jumping on points.

    Overall, my impression of DC changed from being full of safe, boring heroes to that of an interesting, exciting world that was now fresh in a way that pre Crisis never felt.

    For a brief period, between March and September 1986, the following four titles all graced comic shelves at the same time:



    Blue Beetle and Booster Gold both launched in early/mid 1986, and Blue Devil ended near the end of the year. Meanwhile, Gerry Conway left Firestorm around the end of the year and the tone of the series shifted a bit.

    And a few more...



    Note: This run of Hawkman apparently wasn't very popular, but I really liked it.

    Meanwhile, with the rise of the Direct Market, DC focused on more adult comics specifically for the new outlets.

    DC Comics Presents ended with its 97th issue in 1986. (They couldn't squeeze out 3 more?)
