Around 1975, DC began expanding the number of titles it was publishing.This period of expansion was called the DC Explosion. In late 1978, all this rapid expansion caught up with DC. Low sales on many books and pressure from executives in DC's parent company resulted in page count being reduced and the cancellation of many titles. All these cancelations became known as the DC Implosion. Not only were most new titles cancelled, some long established titles were cancelled as well and a few planned new titles never made it to publication including Demand Classics, Deserter, Green Team, Vixen and Western Classics. These five titles, along with some completed but never published issues of other Implosion casualties, were printed in Cancelled Comic Cavalcade #1 and #2. About 35 copies of each issue are thought to exist and Cancelled Comics Cavalcade only went to publication because doing so guaranteed DC's copyright to the unpublished original material.
