[Special note about Back Issue #81: This issue was originally planned to cover both DC and Marvel giants, but editor Michael Eury soon realized that, even with its 100-page expanded size, he needed much more space to do them both justice. So he opted to give Marvel giants their own issue, #86, shipping in January.
But in the frenzy to get this oversize issue to press, publisher John Morrow accidentally used the original version of the cover that mentioned Marvel giants, instead of Michael's revised cover that was all-DC. Please ignore the Marvel blurb on the printed copies, and look for the all-Marvel giants issue in early 2016!]
