Random Reads: "The Merchant of Menace" by Conway, Giffen, and Royer

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Kirby had left DC and Kamandi, heading back to Marvel. Meantime, a young, exciting penciler by the name of Keith Giffen (who does a mean Kirbyeseque style) is making the scene. You flip open the cover of Kamandi #44 (May 1976), and there are Giffen's powerhouse pencils, inked by Mike Royer, himself! Together, they make Gerry Conway's "The Merchant of Menace" look pretty far-out, baby!
