Our Pal Sal: "Titan's Three!" by Thomas, S. Buscema, and Mooney

Merry Christmas, Groove-ophiles! 'Tis Christmas Eve and Ol' Groove is back to share an all-time favorite comicbook classic with you! Now, this one, Sub-Mariner #34, has no special Christmas-y memories (it came out, after all, in November 1970), but it does lead into tomorrow's look at #35 which did, indeed, come out in time for Christmas (around December 1 or so). The important thing, for now, is to spend some time together this Christmas Eve digging on the "prototype" Defenders--"The Titans Three!" with story and art by one of my early dream-teams, Roy Thomas, Sal Buscema, and Jim Mooney! Enjoy!

See you tomorrow for a special Christmas post! Happy Holidays!


  1. We’ve missed you, Groove!
    With too many 70s comic blogs shutting down recently, I was afraid your thanksgiving post would be the last we saw of you.
    Merry Christmas


  2. Yes, we have missed you. Glad your back Groove !
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. Glad you're back!!!! I love this particular issue of the SUB-MARINER, Groove! I'm a huge fan of the Hulk, and this is the Hulk I remember and love well! Even after the fight, he still wants more enemies to smash! lol! Hulk, the Silver Surfer, and Namor. Now THAT'S a powerful team! I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!
