Decent Comics: "Command Performance!" by Englehart, Rogers, and Colletta

Happy Valentine's Day, Groove-ophiles! For this most romantic of days, Ol' Groove thought he'd lay the one Steve Englehart/Marshall Rogers (inked by Vinnie Colletta) Mister Miracle we haven't rapped about yet upon ya. What does MM #21 (September 1977) have to do with Valentine's Day you query? Why, don'tcha know that Scott Free and Big Barda were one of the Great Romances of the Groovy Age? It's true! And what better way to say "I Love You" than to risk your life to bring your loving spouse out of some sort'a cosmic coma? That's what we've got in "Command Performance!"

Don'tcha just love love? (Many thanks to HaCsA*Imbie for the superior scans!)


  1. Apparently Vince Colleta got Marshall Rogers into comics. But their team up was lackluster on Mr. Miracle. Especially when contrasted with the superb Rogers/Austin tales from Detective 471 - 476.
