Grover Groundhog Day 2018: And Now for Something Completely Different

Well, ol' Grover Groundhog didn't see his shadow this morning, because he didn't even appear, and that's because I've momentarily misplaced my Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer comics, which is a hard thing to do when they're treasury-sized. Anyway, Grover himself would like to apologize for the inconvenience, so instead he's sending his cross-company cousin from the MGM Cinematic Universe to make an appearance this year. Say hello to the nice people, Mr. Ground Hog!

Grover himself once again offers his sincere condolences and says look out for him in 2019, if he's not too busy partying with Angel Love again.
