Makin' Chaykin: "All in Color for a Crime!" by O'Neil and Chaykin

What it is, Groove-ophiles! A short while back Ol' Groove rapped about Howard Chaykin's Dominic Fortune and promised you more of our favorite "Brigand for Hire", remember? Well, here's where I keeps me promises! Today's Dominic Fortune masterpiece, "All in Color for a Crime!" was the first in a series of Fortune back-ups for Marvel's full-color The Hulk! magazine. Denny O'Neil wrote the series while Chaykin provided the full art--including painting said art for the special full-process coloring Marvel used on The Hulk! mag. Dominic Fortune, Brigand for Hire ran through ish #25 of The Hulk!, keeping it's full-color glory even while the lead Hulk features went black and white in issues 24-25. Are you ready for some high-quality comicbook fun, Groove-ophiles? Then here ya go!!

And just for fun, here's the erudite editorial discussing Dom's dazzling debut!

  1. I LOVED Dominic Fortune -- and read the Hulk just to get it. (Though, I must admit, that the Rampaging Hulk was a terrific magazine....) Many thanks for this -- I remember reading it in my basement!
