Making a Splash: When the Captain Was a Ms. (Marvel, That Is!)

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! The trailer for the new Ms. Captain Marvel flick just dropped, so Ol' Groove thought it might be a good time to look back at the original, Groovy Age series in all its red-and-blue glory! With art by (mostly) Jim Mooney and Joe Sinnott, along with pencilers like the Brothers Buscema, Keith Pollard, Carmine Infantino and inkers Frank Giacoia, Sam Grainger, Tom Palmer, Bob McLeod, Steve Leialoha, Tony DeZuniga, Frank Springer, and Ric Villamonte, these sensational splashes are sure to please!

Oh, lest Ol' Groove forget, my brother-in-law Badraven cajoled yers trooly into appearing on camera with him again to get my thoughts on the CM trailer. If ya wanna watch us, go to Badraven's YouTube channel by clicking here. And, yeah, I've already been told that I have a face for radio. And if you please, leave Badraven a comment and tell 'im Ol' Groove sent ya!

Funny Stuff: "Badger's Baby Brother--Beastley!" by Drake and Adams

Good evening, Groove-ophiles! Groovy (You Won't Believe What I've Dug Up This Time) Agent here with an eeeeaaarrrrly Neal Adams job for DC Comics on (in case you couldn't guess) Adventures of Bob Hope (#106, June 1967). This wild and wacky tale features the (almost) legendary Super-Hip, as well as a group of Universal Monsters parodies. Author Arnold Drake's story is over-the-top wacky, loaded with sight gags, pratfalls, and snappy patter. It's Adams' art that really steals the show--as usual. Prepare to meet Bob, Super-Hip, Dr. Van Pyre, Frank N. Stein, and most of all... "Badger's Baby Brother--Beastley!"

Black and White Wednesday: "Sand Castle" by Fedory and Marcos

HowOOOO's it shakin', Groove-ophiles! Only in the Groovy Age could you find horror stories that--in one terror tale--feature botched bank robberies, plane crashes, treks through the desert, vampires, and the entrance to Hell! And the best place to find such Horror-Mood monsterpieces? Why in Skywald's  black and white monster mags, natch! From Nightmare #21 (aka the 1974 Nightmare Summer Special), prepare to face a different kind of..."Sand Castle!"
