Marvel-ous Monday: "The Young Warriors!" by G. Friedrich, J. Buscema, and Verpoorten

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! The Black Widow takes it to the streets and gets down to the nitty gritty in her second solo outing in Amazing Adventures #2 (July 1970). "The Young Warriors" isn't a teen super-hero group, but a group of regular teens fighting the law for a good cause...forcing Madame Natasha to choose sides between the militants and the establishment. It's Groovy Age, ripped-from-the-headlines relevance done up in the mighty Marvel-style by Gary Friedrich, John Buscema, and John Verpoorten! Dig it!
