Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Today's subject is a true-blue fave: Marvel Two-In-One #51 (February 1979). That George Perez/Joe Sinnott cover featuring The Thing, The Beast, Ms. Marvel, Wonder Man, and Nick Fury comin' atcha was enough to tug a quartet of dimes out of Teen Groove's pocket, but when I got inside the covers and saw the awesomely far-out art by that new guy Frank Miller and the magnificent Bob McLeod--my mind was officially blown! Writer Peter Gillis could have adapted a Mork and Mindy plot for all I cared, but (thankfully), he didn't. He gave us a cool action/espionage tale (that started out as a friendly poker game), allowing for some great character moments and some sweetly choreographed battle scenes. Yep, this one's an all-time fave, baby! Can you dig it?
