Random Reads: "A Crude Awakening" by Levy, Meyers, and Nostrand

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Ever since Ol' Groove waxed eloquent on John Targitt...Man-Stalker, Groove City has been jumpin' to get our fave Atlas/Seaboard death-wisher-turned-super-hero back on DotGk! Well, the time has come! Get ready for a rip-roaring, no-holds-barred, action-fest that takes no prisoners from JT...MS #2 (January 1975). If ya don't dig heavy comicbook violence or politically incorrect characters--stay away! "A Crude Awakening" by Gabe Levy, Ric Meyers, and Howard Nostrand is very much of its time. Modern-day gunslingers, the oil crisis, the Alaskan Pipeline, the mob, the FBI--whew! Levy and Meyers let it all hang out! What Ol' Groove digs the most, though, is Nostrand's Will Eisner flavored art. Whadda you think, baby?

  1. That's the greatest comic I've ever read ever.
    ' You're just in time for breakfast!'
    What more could you want from a comic?
