Hi there fellow Groovsters! Here's the second action packed installment of the 3-D Man's saga, "The Devil's Music!" from Marvel Premiere #36 (March 1977)! This cover, as all Gil Kane covers do, blew me away (inked no less by the legendary Joltin' Joe Sinnott!). Where we see what looks like a Ricky Nelsen-type character, we really have a Skrull about to get a smack down in 3-D! This issue we not only got a beautiful cover, but two mind-blowing splash pages, as well, by the very talented Jim Craig. You can almost see a Wally Wood look to his art here especially in the action sequences. Along with the similarities to the Golden Age Dare-Devil costume design, Hal Chandler, Chuck's younger brother, even looks like a blond haired Buddy Holly. Of course the whole she-bang was created/written/edited by the great Roy Thomas!

It's a shame the 3-D Spider-Man mag never happened. The 3-D Man was going to be the back up story/character. It would have been really far out to see both Spidey and the 3-D Man actually in 3-D! Who you gonna call? Skrull Busters! SSttaayy ttuunneedd...Same 3-D Man!! Same far-out and groovy website!
