  1. Oh, man. Oh, man. Oh man. I *loved* the digests – and had stacks of them! It’s like you’re launching a podcast just for me…

  2. I bought a ton of these growing up. Heck, I came up with the idea for my published article on 1950s Robin Hood comics just because I knew there were such things thanks to the reprint in the Brave and the Bold digest.

  3. As much as I love treasuries (and the Treasury Cast), the digests were MY format for reprints, and really learning the history of the DCU in particular. So I’m beyond excited for this one!


  4. I love the Digests!!! It was my gateway to the history of DC. I longed for the treasuries, but ever saw them in the store or able to order them from the adds. However, my local supermarket check-out would have a digest there for me to look through and ultimately get. One of my favorite memories of the digests was the one that reprinted the JLA/JSA crossover when they hunt through out history to find the 7 Soldiers of Victory. It was where I get introduced to the classic Golden Age DC . I look for digests at every con and new LCS I go to. So looking forward to this podcast.

  5. Loved the Digests! It was a great mix of reprints for material I loved in a time when that wasn’t easy to come by (Supergirl, Legion, Metal Men) as well as stuff I would never have read otherwise (JSA with the Dr Fate issue, Brave and Bold with the pre-Batman stuff).

    Can’t wait for this!

  6. Another new show. Like Clark Griswold’s membership in the jelly of the month club, the Fire and water network is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the whole year!!

    LOVED the DC digests and had (and still have) a stack of them. Ones I very fondly remember involved the Flash (DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #2) and Green Lantern (DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #4). Those books introduced me to the Earth-2 concept along with the Jay Garrick and Alan Scott versions Flash and Green Lantern.

    Really looking forward to this podcast!

  7. Yeah, on the hype trail for this one. So much great stuff in these. (The first Legion digest is probably the perfect LSH comic. Lots of great Superman collections. Year’s Bests to get a broad view of each year…

  8. Wow! I still have many of my old DC digests and I will be listening with much anticipation. I especially loved all the themed Superman ones. The Batman one featuring the origins of the major villains was (and still is) a prized possession!

  9. I used to go down to the 7-11 a couple of blocks down from where I lived in the early 80’s and brought these any chance I would get. These were the simple days in life and I miss them dearly.

  10. Another new must-listen show. You all hate my free time, don’t you?

    You probably already said or have this planned, but can we get some early notice on what issues you’re doing so we can read ahead?
