There were 58.5 weeks between the arrival of the New Misfits in Looniverse-A and the return of the LNH (as seen in the Infinite Leadership Crisis). During this period, there was a rule forbidding any new members from joining the LNH (although an exception was made for Incredibly Stupid Man, because nobody could convince him to stop applying). The eponymous series chronicles the adventures of the New Misfits during this period, and Cannon Fodder's journey of self-discovery.
The number "58.5" has become an iconic number associated with the Classic Looniverse, in parody of DC's use of 52. The "Cannon Fodder Triumphant" arc (issues #48-49) won RACCies:Favorite Arc in 2009.
