Black and White Wednesday: "The Incredible Hunk" by Weiss and Gamble

Marvel Eats Its Own Children Department: In Crazy #50 (March 1979) Marvel Comics ran a parody of their most successful TV show of the 70s, Incredible Hulk. With "Incredible Hunk" writer Michael Weiss skewered both the good and the bad of the show, while artist Kent Gamble tossed in more celebrity caricatures than you can shake a gamma-bomb at! Check it out, Groove-ophiles!

Decent Comics: "Crisis in the 30th Century!" by Levitz, Pasko, Dillin, and McLaughlin

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! We interrupt our regularly scheduled All-Star Comics featuring the Justice Society post to bring you this special Justice League/Justice Society/Legion of Super-Heroes team-up. This particular story actually appears between issues 68 and 69 of All-Star Comics, so we're actually keepin' the continuity truckin' on by sharing "Crisis in the 30th Century!" (by Paul Levitz, Martin Pasko, Dick Dillin, and Frank McLaughlin) from Justice League of America #147 (July 1977, along with JLA #148 coming up on Thursday)--something that even the big ol' DC Showcase reprint of All Star/JSA didn't do! Who loves ya, baby?

Marvel-ous Mondays: "...And One Shall Die!" by Wolfman, Kane, and Nebres

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! With John Carter, Warlord of Mars #5 (July 1977) Marvel went all in with "truth in advertising" with their "Giant Battle Issue" cover blurb! Writer Marv Wolfman and artists Gil Kane and Rudy Nebres pack so much leaping, dueling, wrestling, and brawling into "...And One Shall Die!" that you might burn off some major calories just reading it! Can you dig it?
