It’s GROOVY, baby!

Groovy_LRG

Mark Voger’s follow-up to Monster Mash is now shipping, and it’s GROOVY, baby!

Subtitled “When Flower Power Bloomed in Pop Culture,” GROOVY looks at comics, music, TV shows, and more areas that were influenced by the hippie movement of the 1960s, and features interviews with (and amazing photography of) icons of grooviness such as Peter Max, Brian Wilson, Peter Fonda, Melanie, David Cassidy, members of the Jefferson Airplane, Cream, the Doors, the Cowsills and Vanilla Fudge; and cast members of groovy TV shows like “The Monkees,” “Laugh-In” and “The Brady Bunch.” GROOVY revisits the era’s rock festivals, movies, art—even comics and cartoons, from the 1968 ‘mod’ Wonder Woman to R. Crumb.

This book is a fun departure from our comics-centric output, and just like Monster Mash, Mark’s hit this one out of the park. GROOVY is available to preview, and purchase in both print and digital editions now at THIS LINK!

AE49 Trial Cover.qxd
The mark of GIL KANE, comics legend, is all over ALTER EGO #149, now on sale. I recall hearing Gil on National Public Radio right after Jack Kirby died in 1994, talking about Jack’s influence on comics. This issue has his remarkable article from the April 1974 edition of The Harvard Journal of Pictorial Fiction, where he waxes on about Kirby as well as Hal Foster, Frank Frazetta, Winsor McCay and others. Preview that Kane article at the 13th Dimension website by clicking HERE.

#149 also features the beginning of our serialization of the autobiography of Golden/Silver Age Flash/GL scripter John Broome. The issue’s shipping now, and in stores tomorrow. You can order and see a preview of the full issue HERE.
