  1. Hooray, DigestCast is back! This was a great episode to shine a light on a digest that isn’t from Marvel or DC. I want to say right up front that I fully agree with Rob that I feel more companies should make more comics. It’s great that are different options out there such as Nancy Drew and Zorro and it’s not just superheros. This is me getting on my soapbox here (feel free to ignore) but, as much as I love superhero comics, comics are a medium and not a genre. There should be a variety of different stories on a variety of different subjects in a variety of different formats. It’s great that these swash-buckling digests exist! Though I don’t own these digests, I would very much would like to hunt them down based on your discussion. They sounded like lots of fun! Well done gentlemen. Keep up the great work!

  2. Oh, excellent, a Digest Cast! And one that covers books I never knew existed to boot!
    I knew McGregor wrote a bunch of Zorro, and the related Lady Rawhide, comics for Topps in the 1990s, but I had no idea about these, or that they were reprinted in digests! And naturally, I found myself doing some searches for them immediately after listening to your episode.
    Otherwise, though, I have to say, I’m a bit miffed at all of the dissing of my man McGregor’s writing. Looks like some people just want to look at the pretty pictures… 😛

  3. Add me to the list of those who didn’t know these existed. I’m not sure the manga art would do much for me (I’m one of “those” people who honestly isn’t much of a fan of that particular art style), but the stories sound intriguing, even if they do seem a bit formulaic…but not Zorro formulaic. It almost seems like a Zorro version of The Outlaw Josey Wales, with Zorro “picking up” stray and random characters and absorbing them into his story along the way.

    Shag, maybe you and Bob can cover the third volume next year. I bet you can get George Romero and Bryan Monthly to participate. Maybe even Piskoid.

  4. Historically speaking you were accurate an inaccurate at the same time. It is true that Wyoming (this is where the Yellowstone caldera is) was not part of what became the State of California, obviously, and what is thought of as Spanish California) , however it is the case that at the time of Zorro it was in the territory of Alta California held Spain. Alta California actually held all of the modern US states of California, Nevada and Utah, and parts of Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. So it is highly probable that all of this took place in the Spanish territory but would need to see a map to be sure;)

  5. Great episode from the network’s founding fathers (founding odd couple?). But now, thanks to Shag’s memory of The Death of Captain Marvel, I will forever associate Ritz Bits with tragic, lingering, painful death. Given what carbs do to my middle-aged dad bod, this association may be a good thing.
