Dig it, Groove-ophiles! During the Summer of '78, Teen Groove was all about The DC Explosion. Nothing else came close to being that cool...except for the fact that Dave Cockrum was not only coming onboard to pencil, but to redesign Ms. Marvel! Yep, my fave mag of July, 1978 was the exquisite Ms. Marvel #20! Chris Claremont's script wasn't bad at all (why didn't he come up with a title?), but nothing compared to Cockrum's art and re-design! Bob Wiacek's inks gave Delightful Dave's pencils a different kind of look, but to me, it was one of the best penciler/inker teams evah!

And yeah, if those lizard-dudes in John Carter's threads look familiar, it's because you read about the last of their kind not too long ago in ROM #9! (Who sez DotGK ain't one big, bad, bizarre time-machine?)
