Black and White Wednesday: "The Magick-Man's Last Gasp Purple Light Show!" by Moench and Ploog

What it is, Groove-ophiles! We're going ape again today with Planet of the Apes #13 (August 1975) and "The Magick-Man's Last Gasp Purple Light Show!" by Doug Moench and Mike Ploog! If you think the title's a doozy, wait'll you read the story underneath it...


  1. The black and white medium, through Planet of the Apes, brought out the absolute best in Mike Ploog. I miss the days when product like this was so abundant in the marketplace.

  2. Ploog and Alcala were my favorite artists on POTA

  3. I cannot thank you enough for this. The POTA black and white magazine was (along with Doc Savage) the key experience of my comics reading 1970s.

  4. Surely The Magick Man's Last Gasp Purple Light Show is the most Don McGergorish title for a comic story ever not actually written by Don McGregor.


  5. But Doug Moench was able to come up with such winners as The Slipped Mickey Click Flip (Creepy # 54).
