Random Reads: "Treachery!" by Bridwell, Skeates, Sekowsky, and Oksner

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! If someone asked you when the last time Mike Sekowsky drew the Justice League was, what would you say? If you'd say "Their guest-appearance in the Supergirl story in Adventure Comics #423 (July 1972)"--you'd be correct-amundo*! Oh, "Treachery!" (plotted by E. Nelson Bridwell, scripted by Steve Skeates, and inked by Bob Oksner) was Sekowsky's last turn drawing the Supergirl feature, as well. Supergirl. JLA. Aliens. What are we waiting for? Let's get on widdit!

*Actually, we'd both be wrong, 'cause a couple Groove-ophiles have corrected Ol' Groove's blunder-ous blurb--'cause Sekowsky actually drew the JLA one more time in JLA (vol. 1) #240 (April 1985). I should'a checked Wikipedia...


  1. Loved Adventure comics, especially when they were running The Spectre, Deadman and the Justice Society. Still one of the great titles.

  2. I'd love to see more Supergirl stories, especially those that Bob Oksner penciled.

    1. Oksner drew beautiful women. Also, I'm a huge Sekowsky fan. But the combination of Sekowsky and Oksner was a mismatch.
