According to [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2010/09/17/comic-book-legends-revealed-278/ Comic Book Resources]], the story was originally intended as a 120-page-long limited series. Unfortunately, due to TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983, Atari canceled the deal with DC Comics midway through development. With 40 pages already completed, DC decided to cut its losses by commissioning an additional 20 pages to finish the story, then released it as a single volume.
