Making a Splash: The Monster of Ploog-enstein
Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Mighty Mike Ploog's art was a breath of fresh autumn air...the kind that comes in October! Werewolf by Night, Ghost Rider, Man-Thing, and of course, The Monster of Frankenstein were made all awesomely (and awfully--in the best way) illustrated by Master Ploog during the early 70s. His Marvel-ously macabre Monster of Frankenstein both thrilled and chilled Young Groove for six sensational issues (Monster of Frankenstein 1-5, then the title changed to The Frankenstein Monster for ish #6, October 1972-August 1973)! How powerful are these Eisner-inspired pencil and ink etchings? See for yourself, baby...
