The Grooviest Covers of All Time: Groovy August Debuts

Happy Birthday to Groove! Yeah, baby, Ol' Groove has now spent 53 years 'pon this spinning globe we call Earth--and I've spent most of 'em reading comicbooks! Not counting my own debut (I debuted pre-Groovy Age, don'tcha know), August was also quite kind to the world of comics--especially during the Groovy Age! So to celebrate moi, we're gonna celebrate a dozen-and-a-half magnificent comicbook milestones. Nope, they're not all first issues, but they're all first somethings! Do you know/can you guess/can you figure out why all the non-first issues were included in this pulse-pounding post? Share your knowledge and/or theories in the comments section--then have a slice of cake on Ol' Groove!
