Man, dig that early Aparo art!
That O'Neil fella proved he had a lot to offer, didn't he, Groove-ophiles? It wouldn't be long before he'd drop his Marvel writing (on strips like Dr. Strange, Patsy and Heidi, and Millie the Model), stop moonlighting for Charlton, and head to DC Comics where he'd become part of a mini-revolution that would help push comics into more intellectual, important, and mainstream arenas. He would help return Batman back to his more serious "creature of the night" roots. He would help create "relevant" (or "socially conscious") comics in his legendary run on Green Lantern/Green Arrow (both usually in tandem with the equally legendary Neal Adams), winning loads of awards along the way. Denny would go on to become a highly successful comicbook editor, television writer, and a novelist, to boot. You'll be hearing a lot more about the talented Mister O'Neil both here and on my upcoming 80s blog, BLINDED ME WITH COMICS, Groove-ophiles! Peace!
