Champion Sports #2

Champion Sports #2, December 1973

Proof, if any were needed, that in the 1970s DC would publish anything, Champion Sports was the brainchild of our old friend, Joe Simon. With art by long-time Simon associate Jerry Grandenetti, the comic featured tales of sporting courage. Quite why DC thought this would be a hit is anyone’s guess. You’d’ve thought that people who were into their sport in a big way would rather be out doing it than reading poorly-produced comics, but there we are.

Needless to say, Champion Sports was out for a duck after three issues.
