100 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT DC COMICS!

I found three pages of notes with the title "100 Things DC".

Most likely, it was a follow-up to the 100 Things I Like About Comics meme I participated in that was kicked off by Fred Hembeck's 1983 strip. Unfortunately, I lost the general 1oo Things I Like About Comics list so I'm slowly trying to recreate it.

But this secondary follow-up list, for all things DC, is intact. I'm not sure when this was compiled, maybe 2007? Anyway, I present it here as it appears in my notes, with no explanations or commentary. I'll try to revisit the list to sharpen my ideas later, but for now, here it is in its rawest form:

  • Having lately been reading alot of late 70s/early 80s comics, I'm reminded how much I loved the Daily Planet pages at the back of the books. That was a hell of a creative way to showcase certainly titles each week.
