Black and White Wednesday: Do You Remember...Dr. FOOM?

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Today Ol' Groove's gonna jog your memory a bit: any former FOOMers remember Charley Parker's Dr. FOOM? Parker's Dr. FOOM was first introduced in FOOM Magazine #4, which led to appearances in issues 8, 9, and 10. The were silly fun in the Not Brand Echh tradition and I always looked forward to 'em.

Parker also did an X-Men parody in ish 10, a Jack Kirby parody in issue 11, and a Vision parody in issue 12. You can read the Kirby strip here, and 'cause Ol' Groove loves ya baby, guess what's comin'...?

Charlie, where'd ya go? You left Young Groove wantin' more! (And if you're out there, stop by and tell us how you're doin'!)


  1. I thought the X-men one was really funny.Laughs on every panel.

  2. These are great, Groovy! I can't believe I haven't seen these for (yikes) forty years?! Not Brand Echh are some of my favorite-ist comics ever and these FOOM spoofs are a fun homage - part Echh and part MAD!
