Black and White Wednesday: "Just for the Grell of It" by Carl Gafford

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophile! Long-time readers know that Ol' Groove is a huge fan of Iron Mike Grell. Why do I dig Grell so much? Aquaman. Legion of Super-Heroes. Green Lantern. Green Arrow. Warlord. Starslayer. Jon Sable. Need I say more? Heck, the very first post on Diversions was about Grell's return to Warlord, lo these nearly five years ago. Check the archives and you'll find lots more Grell-centric posts--but as yers trooley is wont to say, there's never too much of a good thing! So Ol' Groove was digging back through some issues of Amazing World of DC Comics (DC's answer to FOOM Magazine--yeah, there are plenty of AWoDC posts in the archives, too) and found this far-out interview with Iron Mike conducted by (now veteran colorist and editor) Carl Gafford in AWoDC #12 (July 1976). Hope you dig it as much as Ol' Groove does!
Holy Burt Ward (!?) appearance!
