Decent Comics: "Assault of the Rock of Eternity!" by Bridwell, Newton, and Smith

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! We're here with the grand finale to E. Nelson Bridwell and Don Newton's SHAZAM/Monster Society of Evil saga from World's Finest #267 (November 1980)! All the Marvels (including the Lieutenants!) vs. all the bad guys for all the marbles! Inker Bob Smith joins in on "Assault of the Rock of Eternity!"

By the by, Don Newton would have been 83 this past Sunday. Here's to his memory and his immense talent!


  1. Simply astonishing art, thank you Groovy. He was the Gary Frank of his age, look at his Black Adam!

  2. For some reason I could never get into Don Newton's version of the Marvel family, although I was a fan of the artist.
