Groove's Faves: "Eclipse" by Englehart, Rogers, and Colletta

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Has Ol' Groove got a treat for you today! It's the second installment of Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers' Mister Miracle revival from MM #20 (July 1977), "Eclipse"! Not only is this action-packed epic chock-full of wall-to-wall action (courtesy penciler Rogers and inker Vince Colletta), not only is it filled with nifty character bits (courtesy writer Englehart), but it has some of the coolest sound effects ever to grace a comicbook page (courtesy letterer John Workman, no doubt with input from Rogers). Listen up and check it out!

Groove's Faves: "Dread Night of the Jaguar!" by Rozakis, Rogers, and Austin

Happy Halloween, Groove-ophiles! Since we started this our month of terrifying tales with part one of a Man-Bat thriller, Ol' Groove thought it only fitting that we end the month of spirits and sugar with the blood-curdling conclusion from Batman Family #12 (April 1977). Okay, so this Bob Rozakis/Marshall Rogers/Terry Austin mini-monsterpiece isn't blood-curdling, but it is moody, kinda spooky, and fun. And the art! It's a different look for the legendary Rogers/Austin team, but it sure looks dyn-o-mite, doesn't it? Enjoy, my Groovy Ghoulies!










Don't fill up on the candy and make sure to get your apples x-rayed!

Man, I miss Marshall Rogers' amazing art!

The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Summer of 1978--the DC Explosion Continues!

Here's a look at the second round of the DC Explosion from July 1978, Groove-ophiles! Teen Groove was out of the fandom loop at the time, so I had no idea how short-lived this super-experiment in comicbookery would last, but I sure was diggin' the ride! Remember these...?
