Cover to Cover: DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #15

Another digest cover by Ross Andru and Dick Giordano, featuring Aquaman and the rest of the JLA as they prepare to beat the stuffing out of Abra Kadabra, Bizarro, Kanjar Ro, Sinestro, and The Mad Hatter.

Aquaman's only appearance inside the book is in the reprint to Justice League of America #3, a book I covered on my JLA Satellite blog. But he does make a tiny appearance on the back cover, too:
Sure, Ross Andru's anatomy could be a little herky-jerky, but man could he cram a lot into a small space!

The artwork is gorgeous, but Bizarro's S shield should be backward. Also... seriously, The Mad Hatter?

I'm guessing that's Bizarro's first appearance from Superboy #68 where his S was on forwards...? Early Kanjar Ro stories sure got reprinted a lot. Furthermore, there could have been a whole Abbott and Costello routine with Kanjar Ro, and row like row a space boat.

I thought The Mad Hatter was a cool villain because of the TV show. Part of that was David Wayne the actor and part of that was the writers. Still, there were a few good Mad Hatter stories in the comics. Not that he should be on the same scale as Sinestro, of course, but Abra Cadabra, maybe...haha!
