Our Pal Sal: "Slaughter on 10th Avenue!" by Claremont, S. Buscema, and Leialoha

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! We're back with the second smash installment of Chris Claremont, Sal Buscema, and Steve Leialoha's Marvel Team-Up masterpiece featuring Spider-Man, Black Widow, Nick Fury--and more to come! This time we're gonna check out MTU #83 (April 1979). "Slaughter on 10th Avenue!" brings Nick Fury into the fold, gives us the low-down on the whole Nancy Rushman/Black Widow identity thing, and even adds the Silver Samurai and Boomerang to the mix! Plus, we learn who's behind the whole schmeer...but Ol' Groove'll let you learn that secret for yourself if you've never had the pleasure of reading this beauty before! Onward!

Thanksgiving Feast 2015: "The Legionnaires Who Haunted Superboy!" by Bates and Grell

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! We're finishing our Thanksgiving Feast 2015 with a most superior dessert, recommended by none other than James Sanders III (artist and Groove-ophile supreme)! From Superboy #206 (October 1974) here are Cary Bates and Mike Grell with..."The Legionnaires Who Haunted Superboy!"

Thanksgiving Feast 2015: What If Conan the Barbarian Walked the Earth Today?" by Thomas, J. Buscema, and Chan

It's the main course in our Thanksgiving Feast 2015, Groove-ophiles, and do we ever have a special treat for ya! What If ? #13 (November 1978) was a long time coming! Originally announced for What If? #3, delays of many kinds kept the story from appearing for nearly two years--but was it ever worth the wait! Conan team supreme Roy Thomas, John Buscema, and Ernie Chan got it all together for this alternate universe Conan epic that spun off from Savage Sword of Conan #7's "Citadel at the Center of Time"! Watch for the Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson cameo, and just dig Danette, the taxi cab driver based on Roy's (then soon-to-be bride, Dann)! Take your time and enjoy! Ya don't have to stuff, ya know!
