Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #41 - Oct. 1981

sgWhat a treat! 100 pages of all-new Sugar & Spike stories!

There's something magical about Sheldon Mayer's little tot characters, since even among many comic/DC/superhero fans, they are beloved, and that's not something you can say about a lot of the other kiddie material DC put out over the decades. Heck, Sugar & Spike even made an appearance in Crisis on Infinite Earths--they're canon, for pete's sake!

Apparently, this material was put together for foreign editions, so this is the first time these stories have appeared in English. One wonders how much other material is out there, featuring who knows who...

Anyway, the S&S stories in this collection are:
"Two Little Davids Take On One Big Goliath"
"The Truck Driver"
"Pint-Size Human Flies"
"The Monster"
"Pillow Pictures"
"Who's Throwing This Party?"
"The Grown-Up Toy Boat"
"A Study in Science Friction"
"The Egg"
"The Day The World Turned Upside-Down"
"The Crazy Mixed-Up Hamburgers"
"Something Special"

...plus a first for a DC digest, a letters page! These letters were in reference to Best of DC Digest #29, the previous S&S collection, which I thought was a nice touch. Cool to know I wasn't the only one out there buying the digests!
