Groove's Faves: "A Child Shall Leave You" by Conway, Newton, and Adkins

Classic creators Gerry Conway, Don Newton, and Dan Adkins continue their revival of Jack Kirby's Fourth World with "A Child Shall Leave You" in Return of The New Gods #14 (July 1977). That Orion splash page, alone, was worth the thirty-five cent price of admission as far as Teen Groove was concerned. Now I know it was worth a lot more than that!

  1. I love Don Newton's art ! Personally, my fave is his PHANTOM, which is just stellar work.
