Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #22/23 - March/April 1982

The Phantom Stranger showed up two more times in DC's digests, in two consecutive issues, around this time.

Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #22 is a Christmas-themed collection, and it features this classic from Justice League of America #110:
It was in this digest that I first read this story, which hit me like a thunderbolt. It remains one of all-time favorite JLA stories, and The Phantom Stranger's guest appearance in the story just made it that much better.

Best of DC Blue Ribbon Digest #23 was DC's annual "Year's Best" collection, and I bet everyone at DC knew that this story was one of--if not the--best story they put out in 1982:
Both these digest collections feature great stories and art, and were a great value for the average comic readers' hard won allowance money. Boy, do I miss them!
