This issue of DC Special Series is a treat. Head over to “A Superman Collector in Hawaii” to read his entry on the issue.
When I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of Superhero Secret Lairs, and among my favorites were Batman’s Batcave and Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Other than the Cool factor of the X-Men’s Danger Room, I cannot think of any other hideouts that I would rather visit.
The CBS Special graphic. There are a few things in my childhood that created instant excitement for me. One was the 20th Century Fox fanfare, even today whenever I hear it expect to See “A Long Time Ago…” right after. The next was the CBS “Special” graphic. It mostly signified that a holiday special was going to be presented OR just a random animated show, such as The Hobbit, Riki Tiki Tavi, or Puff the Magic Dragon. Back in those days we had three main networks, one PBS, plus one or two UHF channels on TV. Cartoons were regulated to Saturday mornings or an after school block of programing. I can’t relay the amount of joy that I had upon seeing this. I looked for a decent version of it and found none in an image search, so I made on myself. It isn’t exact but I think it will do nicely if anybody requires one ^_^
