1968 marked a shift in editorial, soon leading to the end of the Silver Age and the start of the Bronze Age. Kinney gives art director Carmine Infantino the job of revitalizing the publisher. Out with the old, in with the new: legends such as Boring, Mooney, Papp, Binder and Siegel are let go in favor of new talent - like teenager Jim Shooter. Younger writers and artists - Joe Orlando, Joe Kubert, Mike Sekowsky - are placed in editorial roles so that DC might catch up with Marvel Comics again. Steve Ditko, Dick Giordano and Denny O'Neil join from Charlton.
