Thanksgiving Feast 2015: "The Saga of Iron Jaw" by Fleisher, Sekowsky, and Abel

Welcome back to Thanksgiving Feast 2015, Groove-ophiles! We're back with our second course, the very first issue of Atlas/Seaboard's Iron Jaw! Ol' Groove has no idea as to why we haven't rapped about this one before (especially when you consider this Secret Origins post), but here, from November 1974, are Michael Fleisher, Mike Sekowsky, and Jack Abel with..."The Saga of Iron Jaw"! Dig in, baby!

  1. I'm a big fan of Sekowsky, but it's clear that on this one he was having a hard time. His attempts to get that jaw to look right are rough at best. Pablo Marcos brought the Conanesque energy to this comic it needed.

    Rip Off
