Black and White Wednesday: "Relic" by McKenzie, Infantino, and Severin

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Today we gonna celebrate good all-American comicbook stuff like horror, sci-fi, robots, and baseball! "Relic", from Creepy #84 (cover-dated November 1976), was written by Roger (Charlton Arrow) McKenzie and blessed with art by two of the all-time giants of comicbook illustration, Carmine Infantino and John Severin. Dig it!


  1. I LOVE 70s science fiction.... you MADE my day. Thanks.

  2. that's a great baseball story and a great robot story too.

  3. Cool story. I remember really enjoying this whole issue back in the day.

  4. Wow! Don't know a thing about baseball but this story was so poignant! More, Groove, more!
