See ya in six hours for the grand finale, Groove-ophiles! Pax!!


  1. Great main course, and appetizers, too, for that matter. Love the classic Wein & Aparo Phantom Stranger in particular.
    Since I'm quite a few time zones ahead of you, Groove, I don't know if I'll still be up to see the finale this evening, so I'll just convey my big thank yous right now, and also wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Micronauts! Yes! Thanks for sharing that.

  3. I hope you'll post more Micronauts in the future—I haven't seen these since they came out, but likely read them so many times I recall the panels exactly when I see them. Those toys I had as a kid are what got me interested in comics in the first place.

  4. The Phantom Stranger must have been pretty confident about wind strength and direction when it came to that flaming airship - Paris is a good 200-250 kilometres from the nearest coastline (assuming the air currents were blowing in that direction in the first place).
