Bring on the Back-ups: "The Haunted Studio Mystery!" by Bridwell and Giordano

Ya know, Groove-ophiles, sometimes we wanna read comics just for fun. Not be be blown away, not to have our minds boggled, but just to get away and go to a simple place where right is right, wrong is wrong, and talented folks make feel-good comics. The best way Ol' Groove knows to accomplish this is to pick up a good ol' Groovy Age mag like Detective Comics #430 (October 1972). Backing up the usual Batman blockbuster was this Elongated Man short by E. Nelson Bridwell and Dick Giordano. "The Haunted Studio Mystery" has no intentions of pushing envelopes or re-defining how we look at comics--and that's why Ol' Groove digs it! Bet you'll dig it, too!
