Making a Splash: Gil Kane's Flash

Dig it, Groove-philes! For a short time during the Groovy Age, Gil Kane drew four issues of The Flash! Bet ya forgot all about that, huh? Well, it's true--his action-packed art graced Flash issues 195, 197-199 (January, March-June 1970). The first tale was inked by Murphy Anderson, the other three by Vinnie Colletta. Yep, Kane came and went in a (dare I say it?) flash (waaaa!), but you don't have to speed through this post. Take your time and enjoy these sensational splashes, baby!

Random Reads: "The Isle of the Dead"

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! "The Isle of the Dead" was the cover feature for Gold Key's Twilight Zone #53 (September 1973). It's a creepy and cool story, and in true Twilight Zone fashion--its creators are mysterious as well. I've done some research, and have found the artists for the other features in TZ #53 (Adolpho Buylla, Luis Dominguez, and Jack Abel), but have found nuttin' for this ghostly gem. Oh, well, enjoy the mystery as you spend a few the Twilight Zone!

Black and White Wednesday: Marie Severin Cover Designs

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! Back during the early 70s, Marie Severin designed many a cool cover for Mighty Marvel, some of them downright iconic. Yeah, some were eventually drawn by the likes of the Brothers Buscema, Neal Adams, and Jack Kirby, some she drew herself, but all of 'em are pretty far-out. Enjoy this behind-the-scenes treasure trove, baby!
