Decent Comics: "The Graybeard Gang" by Bridwell, Newton, and Hunt

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Today's SHAZAM! spotlight shines on Freddy Freeman aka Captain Marvel Jr. as he battles baddies that should be home sippin' their Geritol!  "The Graybeard Gang" by E. Nelson Bridwell, Don Newton, and Dave hunt first showed up in World's Finest Comics #263 (March 1980). Let's hustle on into the disco and let the adventure begin!


  1. Don Newton's spin on the Marvel Family characters was an ideal blend of the then current style with a lighter touch which evoked the classic Fawcett comics. With talents like Newton and Dave Cockrum, Kurt Schaffenberger, Bob Oksner, Alan Weiss and C.C. Beck the Marvels got the best artwork in their short tenure at DC.

  2. Loved Newton's work on the Shazam Family. And I loved the dollar comic era of World's Finest...
