Happy New Year, Groove-ophiles! I know the messes of 2020 didn't disappear like Cinderella's ballgown when the clock struck twelve, but at least we have a clean slate starting today! Let's enjoy--and make the most of--it!
We're gonna celebrate here in Groove City with the comic that I nabbed right after it hit the spinner-racks on or about January 1, 1971... Charlton's The Partridge Family #1! (What? I was just a second grader then. Whaddya think, Li'l Groove was gonna snag a copy of Savage Tales #1?)
In the dawning days of 1971, The Partridge Family had become Li'l Groove's favorite TV show. I dug the fun family, the cool clothes (well, to me, back then, they were!), and of course, the music! Charlton Comics was wise enough to get the comicbook rights to the show, and to put the talented Don Sherwood in the driver's seat of their four color tour bus, as well! Sherwood was great at likenesses and had a style that lent itself perfectly to translating our fave rock n roll family into funnybook form. Enough yappin' from moi, let's get our family rock party on with all the goodness that was The Partridge Family #1!
See ya next time, Groove-ophiles! May love and kindness guide us every day of this New Year!
