Another awesome Adventure Comics era! Staton on Plastic Man, Ditko on Starman!
Len Wein, Walt Simonson, and Dick Giordano. Batman vs. Joker. Garcia-Lopez cover. Merry Christmas, for sure! (Oh, and Teen Groove bought this'un at the Piggly Wiggly in Rose Hill, Virgina on the way--are you ready for this?--to Grandma's house!)
Frank Miller's first Batman story is only one of the in-freakin'-credible things you can find in this astounding Holiday Special!
The Silver Age is still hanging on at DC!
The first issue of Bill Mantlo's staggering six year(ish) run as Ol' Greenskin's writer. (Thanks to Groove-ophile Ron H. for the reminder!)
One of the best Marvel Preview issues ever--and it's all reprints! Genius!!
Yep, this is one of 'em Sis got me for Christmas. I let her read it first. I know, I'm a sweetheart.
Doug Moench, Mike Zeck, and Gene Day's best story arc.
Everyone remembers Frank Miller's incredible art (inked, all but 2 pages, by Joe Rubinstein), but writer Roger McKenzie deserves a truckload of kudos for the script on this spectacular ish.
