Addicted to Alex Nino: "The Last Battle"

Here's a new sometimes-series for all you Alex Nino fans! From time to time Ol' Groove'll be digging up little-seen stories featuring Nino's neat-o art. What a simple, yet brilliant concept, no? First up, here's a sci-fi short from DC Comics' Weird War Tales #24 (January 1974) written by the ever-amazing Jack Oleck. It's "The Last Battle"!

Black and White Wednesday: The Hound of the Baskervilles Part 2

Welcome back to part two of Marvel Comics' adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles, Groove-ophiles! This comic comes from Marvel Preview #6 (Spring 1976), and it's a doozy! Written by Doug Moench with art by Val Mayerik and Tony DeZuniga...well, let's just say its more lively than an issue of Classics Illustrated!
