NOTICE - Fawcett Comics changes due to copyright status

Congrats on your new book Face!

Thanks, Yoc! It's CM Battles the Seven Deadly Sins. 36 pages, 2 CM stories plus other characters.

Additional - CM Battles the Seven Deadly Sins (inside title is "Battles King Kull and...") is in the 75 Years book. 2nd CM story is Mr. Tawny's Culture Craze, 3rd story is CM and the Royal Riddle involving Billy Batson's double Tommy Archer and a switcheroo plot.

Sounds like they're copyrighting and trademarking all the very marketable characters - Mary Shazam the movie (female super powered heroines are super popular properties), Hoppy the Shazam Bunny? Anyone remember Rocket Racoon & Groot?

I didn'know that:

In the United States, as a result of successive changes in the law, works first published between 1924 and 1978 are protected for a period of 95 years after this first publication, i.e., until 2073 at the most and 2019 at the least. However, in most countries of the world, the Berne Convention applies with a protection of 50 or 70 years after the death of the author; that is to say until 2049 at the most for works by authors who died in 1978, and at least 1975 for authors who died in 1924.

So what does this mean?
