13 DC DIGEST COVERS to Make You Feel Good

Just for fun…

Ah, synchronicity.

Last week, I posted a story by our buddy Anthony Durso called 13 REASONS TO LOVE DC IN THE BRONZE AGE. It was the fourth in a series of tributes to the fun little things we all dig about DC and Marvel in the Silver and Bronze Ages. (Click here. It’s a kick.)

Anyway, one part of his piece that provoked a particularly strong reaction was this:

“11. DC Digests. The Biggest Little Buy in Comics continued my lesson in the History of the DC Universe where the 80/100-Page Giants left off. Plus, they fit nicely in the inside pocket of a jeans jacket! Perfect to smuggle into school and read in study hall!”

So it seemed like a good idea to follow up with a 13 COVERS gallery. And in putting it together, it occurred to me that I’d forgotten just how many cool covers the digests boasted. There were some real gems.

Check it out:
