Because Reggie couldn't get it together to finish up the History of Underground Comix, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) bring you a classic episode from way back when Weird Comics History was a segment of the Weird Science DC Comics Dot Com Podcast! This combines two parts from episodes 76 and 77 of that podcast, and they're all about DC Comics' first imprints mean to appeal to independent creators: Piranha Press and Paradox Press! These are relevant to Underground Comix in that it was another venue for people to showcase their non-superhero work, and of course some of the lessons learned from these imprints would be applied to Vertigo later on. So consider this your extra credit work!
