Groove's Faves: Frank Miller Goes Cosmic!

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Yeah, we all know how well Frank Miller does street-level grim-n-gritty (Daredevil, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), but did'ja ever wonder how he'd handle a sci-fi superhero like, hmmm, let's say, Marvel's Captain Marvel? This filler, written by Mike W. Barr (who would go onto fame and acclaim with DC mags like Camelot 3000 and Batman and the Outsiders in the 1980s), drawn by a young Miller, and inked by Bruce (Bedeep!) Patterson would prove to be the good captain's last solo-tale before Jim Starlin's Death of Captain Marvel sent him to that great graphic novel in the sky. Man, you are gonna love this! From Marvel Spotlight Vol. 2, No. 8 (June 1980), here's "The Planet Where Time Stood Still!"
