Thanksgiving Feast 2019!

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! As Gomer Pyle would say, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!" Ol' Groove is here to kick off your holiday cheer with a Thanksgiving Feast! (For those of y'all living outside the U.S. of A. enjoy a "Surprise!" for your Thursday!)

To start us off, here's the debut issue of Marvel's Mattel-toy-based Shogun Warriors comic from November 1978 by Doug Moench, Herb Trimpe, and Dan Green!

Next, dig DC's revival of Plastic Man from November 1975! The PLOP!-ish talents of Steve Skeates and Ramona Fradon (with Teny Henson) were perfect for this off-the wall version of Plas and his pal Woozy Winks!

And how'z about a terrific Star Trek tale from Gold Key circa November 1978? One by Arnold Drake and Al McWilliams?

Yeah, Ol' Groove thought you'd dig it!

But wait! For all you Black Friday shoppers, here's a real deal--a black and white masterpiece by Titanic Tom Sutton, daringly dropped in the back of Charlton's Ghostly Tales #113 (November 1974)!

Hope you enjoyed this year's feast, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove'll be back in 2020 with weekly posts right here on our beloved Diversions of the Groovy Kind blog...AND a brand new comic mag created in the spirit of the Groovy Age called (what else?) Diversions! Keep watching this page! 2020 is gonna be outtasite!
