Making a Splash: Happy Day After Keith Giffen's Birthday!

Happy birthday to Keith Giffen who just turned 65 yesterday! If you've hung around Groove City for any time at all, then you know the ever-so-talented Mr. Giffen is one of Ol' Groove's fave Groovy Age (and beyond! He still rocks!) artists. You can find samples of his best known Groovy Age series' like JSA (in All Star Comics), Defenders, Challengers of the Unknown, and Claw the Unconquered by doing just a little digging in the sidebar. But there are a few mags that you may not realize KG lent a pencil to, and those are the ones we're focusing on today: Kobra, Kamandi, Super-Villain Team-Up, and even House of Mystery! Happy birthday, Keith Giffen! Keep makin' those amazing comics!


  1. I wish you had substituted a splash of Woodgod for one of the Kamandi ones. The Giffen/Janson art was spectacular. The Kobra entry was superb in every way: great story by Martin Pasko, Giffen pencils finished by Giordano and early Terry Austin. I was lucky enough to buy 2 original pages off Mr. Austin for $5 each back before art became so prohibitive. Still have them.

    1. Woodgod has his own post, keythd23. And I was going for "little known" Giffen.

    2. Tristan looks a lot like Prince Valiant.
