Marvel-ous Monday: "Though Some Call It Magic!" by Conway, Colan, and Palmer
Greetings, Groove-ophiles! When Ol' Groove did the post for Astonishing Tales #8 featuring Ka-Zar last month, I didn't realize that we'd already tackled issues 9 (a fill in by Stan Lee and John Buscema) and 10 (the actual finale by Roy Thomas, Barry Smith, and Sal Buscema). (You can read #9 here and #10 here). To make up for the boo-boo, here's that Colan/Palmer Dr. Doom job from A.T. #8 that many of you have been clamoring for! Written by Gerry Conway, "Though Some Call It Magic!" is a beautifully illustrated look at Doom's magical side. No wonder so many of ya wanna see it!
Oh, yeah, did you catch the title for the next issue blurb? Does it sound familiar? Here's why:
