DIVERSIONS OF A GROOVY KIND, a comics blog that celebrates comics magazines of the 1970's. This week "The Groovy Agent" is showcasing the big B&W Martial Arts magazines of the period.
Many of you won't recall these, but on 1970's newsstands there were a plethora of B&W large size comics and article magazines designed to capitalize on the 'adult' path Warren magazines explored. We had DOC SAVAGE, CONAN, INCREDIBLE HULK, BIZARRE ADVENTURES; I, ZOMBIE ; TOMB OF DRACULA and others that fit outside the norms of comic publishing. In many cases I would say they were 'pulp comics.'
ESSENTIALS series so you can get and enjoy these lurid, colorful (yet B&W) tales.
