Thursday Team-up: "The Taking of Counter-Earth!" by Gruenwald, Bingham, and Day

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Last Thursday you thrilled to The Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing teaming with Starhawk as they got caught up in the mystery of Her! Today we're digging on part two, which adds Moondragon and even The High Evolutionary to the mix! Toss in flashbacks featuring Adam Warlock and a glimpse of Thanos, and you'll understand why we heaped such praise 'pon author Mark Gruenwald and artists Jerry Bingham and Gene Day back in January 1980, when this ish of Marvel Two-In-One (#62 to be exact) first appeared! It's a mix of Marvel continuity and Marvel cosmic, baby!

Oh, and if ya dig team-ups and cross-overs, wait'll tomorrow, baby! Ol' Groove is doing a special team-up/cross-over post with my pals Doug and Karen at Bronze Age Babies featuring the grooviest team-up covers evah! It's gonna be faaaaaar-out!


  1. Still love it, even with that simultaneously comical yet also cringe-inducing scene of Ben spanking Moondragon.

  2. Gene was quite a talented artist. Hard to believe he did not make it to his 32nd birthday (major coronary). Who knows what might have been...

  3. Haha yeah Edo even after all these years the one thing I most vividly remember about reading this issue is not the cosmic storyline but rather that panel of Ben spanking Moondragon like a spoilt child! :)
