Here's Marvel's reaction to the DC Implosion wherein DC suddenly canceled more than two dozen comic series in 1978.

Way to rub it in, guys.

There wasn't actually a Marvel "explosion" at this time (as opposed to the official "DC Explosion" that subsequently resulted to the implosion). All of the titles listed were already ongoings, and in fact this ad runs in Tomb of Dracula #59 one month before that book is put on a bi-monthly status. Daredevil had also gone bi-monthly a little earlier than this. Ironically, Marvel's relatively new (or revived) series, X-Men, isn't even shown here.
