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!
