Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #33 - Feb. 1983

sgYou asked for the Legion, and you're gonna get 'em! Don't blame me--I sure as heck didn't ask for the Legion. Nothing againt them; I just was never that big a Legion fan, except for the Levitz/Giffen run. But if you were, this was the first(of many) digests for you:

"The Lone Wolf Legionnaire" by Edmund Hamilton and John Forte
"The One-Shot Hero" by Cary Bates and the late, great Dave Cockrum
"Dawnstar Rising" by Paul Levitz, our pal Paul Kupperberg, James Sherman, and Bob McLeod
"Brotherly Hate!" by E.Nelson Bridwell and George Tuska
"The Trillion-Dollar Trophies" by Jim Shooter, Mike Grell, and Bob Wiacek
"The Infinite Man Who Conquered the Legion!" by Levitz, Sherman, and Wiacek
...then the cover feature, "Secret Origins of the Legion of Super-Heroes"(reprinted from the Legion treasury comic All-New Collectors' Edition #C55), plus a cover gallery of some of the books reprinted.

Nice wraparound cover by Keith Giffen and Mike DeCarlo!
