Thursday Team-Up: "Is This the Day the World Ends?" by Claremont, Brown, and Janson

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove is in the mood for a cool team-up, and this Thing/Black Widow team-up from Marvel Two-In-One #10 (April 1975) certainly fits the bill! "Is This the Day the World Ends?" has it all! Early Chris Claremont! Prime Bob Brown! Young Klaus Janson on inks and colors! An evil secret society bent on destroying the world! Great chemistry/patter between our heroes! Plus it's got plenty of Marvel-style ACTION! Dig it!


  1. Boy that Klaus Jason could improve anyone! Never really cared for Bob Brown's art. He seemed too old school for the groovy age. But teamed with Mr Janson he looked amazing. Loved all the Daredevils they did together. I finally got to meet Klaus this year at the Emerald City Comicon. A true gentleman and genius with the brush, pen and zipatone.

  2. THIS is what I read comics for. Great stuff.

  3. Love Brown/Janson, but Sal Buscema/Janson is best. Still have this book.

    1. How about Buckler/Janson? Their 3 issues of Deathlok the Demolisher were one of the high points of the Bronze Age.
