Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #18 - Nov. 1981

DC pulled out the stops for the first digest collection of what was one of their best-selling, most popular books, The New Teen Titans.
It's amazing, when you look back on it, at the creative consistency Marv Wolfman and George Perez brought to NTT--the book, even though it featured some of DC's oldest characters, had a distinctive point of view, and they never seemed the same after their run in this book. They seemed more real, more like fully realized people.

But this book culls from various incarnations of the team, featuring some of DC's best talent:

• "Reunion!" by Wolfman, Carmine Infantino, and Romeo Tanghal, which is an all-new NTT story 
"Titans Fit the Battle of Jericho" and "Citadel of Fear" by Neal Adams (story and pencils) and Nick Cardy 
Skis of Death" by Bob Haney, Gil Kane, and Cardy

...all in all, a nice package, and its even got a classic, breaking-the-fourth-wall cover like the comics of old. Gar Logan reads digest comics, too!

One of my favorite digests from one of my favorite series. Perez, Infantino, Adams, Cardy and G.Kane under one cover? Heaven.
