Groove's Faves: "He Who Slaughters!" by O'Neil and Staton

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Did you know that one of my fave Boys from Derby, Joe Staton eventually became the regular artist of DC's Green Lantern mag in the late 70s? Well, he did! Joe loved GL, and his art on E-Man showed that he'd be a natural, so it was inevitable that Joe and GL would get together. But that's not what this post is about! (Had ya goin', huh?) Today I wanna look back at Joe's very first shot at drawing GL DC Special Series #1 (June 1977), aka Five Star Super-Hero Spectacular. A year later, Joe would be drawing the short-lived GL series in the Dollar Comic version of Adventure Comics, and soon after that he'd graduate to drawing Green Lantern itself. And it all started with..."He Who Slaughters!" (written by Denny O'Neil, natch!)
