(P)Raising Kane: "Vengeance of the Molecule Man!" by Gerber, Kane, and Sinnott

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! When the ever-lovin'-blue-eyed Thing's team-up mag moved from Marvel Feature to the long-running Marvel Two-In-One, editor Roy Thomas turned writer Steve Gerber, penciler Gil Kane, and inker Joe Sinnott loose on the first fab ish! How fab was it? Well, Benjamin J. Grimm sorta/kinda teamed up with the lumbering Man-Thing to battle the cosmically powered Molecule Man! Sound fab to you? From October 1973, here comes the..."Vengeance of the Molecule Man!"

  1. Love this vintage find! I love the part about "molecular madness." So fun how comic books are the same throughout the years.

  2. Just a dang cool bronze-age comic. My local comic shop has this up on the wall on display,( a great little comic shop in Sioux Falls, S.D. I'd give 'em a plug but I'm not sure what their name is currently) along with a lot of other classic old comics, and man would I like to get my sweaty little hands on that, but I don't have seventy bucks burning a hole in my pocket. Still, this is the next best thing.
    The Man Thing and Molecule man have a little bit of history, don't they? These macabre menaces would meet later in an Iron Man Annual. now that comic, I do own!
    Great post, Groove. mp
