Tuesday Team-up: "The Yesterday Connection!" by Conway and Andru

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Yep, yers trooly did, indeed, rap about this titanic team-up waaaay back in the early days of the Diversions (click here to read that ancient post), so Ol' Groove thought it was about time to allow you to actually plant your peepers on this long-lost almost-meeting between Spider-Man and Doc Savage. Don't you agree? Huh? Don'tcha? Okay, then! Here's "The Yesterday Connection!" from Giant-Size Spider-Man #3 (October 1974) by Gerry Conway, Ross Andru, and Mike Esposito!


  1. Spectacular!

    Looking at the artwork in this format, it's clear how effective Ross Andru's storytelling is, and if anything his layouts are more powerful than normal.

    This likely will never be reprinted, so it's good to see it get some respect.

    Rip Off

  2. Hey Groovster!!
    I loved Marvel Team Up! I wish Doc Savage had survived longer too. As popular as he is & how beautiful both his mags were. I was shocked it got canceled so soon. When I asked the late great artist Tony Dezuniga. What he could remember about doing Man-God in Marvel Preview #9. He said he modeled the character Hugo Danner after Doc Savage a bit. Since he was or had just finished drawing the Doc Savage mag. As well as inking John Buscema's first issue on that mag.

  3. I remember buying this around the time that the Doc Savage movie came out. In fact, I think I picked it up the same week I saw the movie. I bought this and the premiere issue of the B/W Doc Savage series. Yeah, I was a fan. :) I loved the B/W series and hated to see it end. That was as good as comics got for me.

  4. Wow Spidey & Doc Savage together! Thanks for posting this Groove!

  5. the Ross Andru/Mike Esposito was one of my favorite Spider-Man teams - and i loved their Doc too! Although the Marvel Black & White Doc was the best comic version they didn't do a bad job with the full color Doc too!
