Speaking of Archie, there was an Archie/Red Circle superhero digest with a
slick Neal Adams story featuring the Black Hood (when Archie relaunched their
superhero line in the 80's).

Oh heck, yeah!  I bought that Archie digest at little grocery store beside a mini golf course in Gatlinburg, TN!  Read it until it fell apart...


That and the first Best of DC digest with Superman 149 are burned (in the best possible way) in my memory.

My familiarity with DC history prior to 1976 came almost exclusively from these.  Loved them.

On a similar note, any UK members remember the old
Marvel Pocket books?

50 pages of classic Marvel comic books reprinted in
black & white on the cheapest paper imaginable... they
were great! Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Hulk... I
bought nearly all of them, I think... Filled in my
Marvel history in no time.
