Groovy Age Splash Page of the Week

Collecting the Groovy Age...
DC 1st Issue Special Hardcover
One of the reasons for the new format here at DotGK is because Ol' Groove won't be as focused on sharing whole comics as much as I have done in the past. Why? Well, if you're keeping up with the comicbook reprint market, the answer's pretty obvious: there's not a whole lot from the Groovy Age that's not already or getting ready to be put into print! Case in point: DC's 1st Issue Special! Who'd'a thunk that DC's little-known mid-70s try-out mag would get the hardback collection treatment? Not moi! But hey, while it's unexpected, it's most definitely appreciated--and you can bet your banged-up copy of Avengers #88 that Ol' Groove has pre-ordered his copy! Instead of the usual run-down of what's gonna be in the collection (all 13 issues of 1st Issue Special, duh!), how 'bout we just savor the splashes that represent each scintillating (or silly, whatever the case may be) story...
The retail price is $39. 99 and it's scheduled to go on sale April 15, 2020. Are you as excited as Ol' Groove is, baby? See ya next week! Pax!
