Rudolph the Weaponized Reindeer

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! In this episode, workshop janitors Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) read a seasonal favorite enjoyed for generations: DC Comics' Limited Collectors Edition #C-24 from 1973, aka New Giant Adventures of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Sy Reit and Rube Grossman! After some biographical information about our creators, and a look at how these oversized treasury editions came to be in the first place, our reindeer groomers read all three of the Rudolph stories in the book, following each twist and turn, no matter how inane. After a break, they talk about the rest of the Limited Collectors Edition line, including some titles that made it into other formats entirely! It's an episode sure to chase the seasonal doldrums away, don't miss it!

Robin Annual #1 (1992) - "The Anarky Ultimatum" Review

Writers: Alan Grant, John Wagner
Artists: Tom Lyle, Scott Hanna
Release Date: July 21, 1992
Cover Price: $2.50

Review by: Joey Casco
Please go check out Joey's awesome site 

It's time for more 90's Tim Drake goodness! This is not only Robin Annual #1 from 1992, but it's also Part 12 of the "Eclipso: The Darkness Within" series, which retconned Eclipso's story of being the dark half of Bruce Gordon and changed it to a body-possessing vengeance demon.  In this issue, Anarky has collected five shards of the "Heart of Darkness" diamond that contains Eclipso and can be used to summon him, and he plans on using it for his anti-authoritarian agenda and, of all things, planet conservation. It's up to Batman and Robin to stop Anarky from releasing Eclipso and endangering citizens!
