Sensational Seventh Anniversary! Titanic Tuesdays: "Trouble--Which Rhymes With Double!" by Rozakis, Brown, and Blaisdell

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Today is Diversion of the Groove Kind's sensational SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY! Man, time doth fly when you're having fun, dunnit? Ol' Groove just wants to say "Thanks" and send a big ol' Dating Game-style "mmmMMWAH!"  to all'a you far out fellas and fems who have made Groove City their cyber-home-away-from-home! Ol' Groove loves ya, baby!

And now, welcome back to our regularly scheduled Diversions and  Mal and His Pals, er, Teen Titans, Groove-ophiles! Teen Titans #47 (January 1977) had a bit more "oomph" than the ish before it. Perhaps it was the author Bob Rozakis' plot in which Two-Face sent pairs of evil-doers after our heroes (goofy those twin terrors might have been--like something right out of Archie's campy Mighty Heroes line of the 60s). Perhaps it was the art by Bob Brown who was moving back to DC after spending most of the 70s at Marvel. Sadly, this was one of Bob's last completed jobs (or was it even completed? Looks like some art-tinkering went on here and there), as he passed away the very month this mag hit the stands. Ol' Groove's not sure, but I do know that ending was certainly an attention getter (as was that groovy Rich Buckler/Jack Abel cover)!


  1. Happy Anniversary! And I've really been enjoying and looking forward to these Teen Titan issues.

  2. Congratulations on the big 7, Groove!

  3. Cento di questi giorni Groovy Agent [= may you have one hundred o'these days!]

  4. Congrats and hope you are not experiencing the 7-year itch? LOL. If so, then please start a blog on the 60s or 80s... don't leave Fandom out in the cold!

  5. Happy anniversary Oh Groovy one!

  6. Congratulations on 7 wonderful years Groove! Here's to many more! Cheers!

  7. Congratulations on your anniversary!

    Big surprise from Duela on the last page. I think Bob Rozakis still regrets DC didn't stick with this big reveal.
