Scanlation Get: Devilman vs Getter Robo
The most interesting part of this manga is the final battle which include Miki and Michiru getting their own Getter to pilot. Though in the end it doesn't do much, but at least the gave the ladies something to do, other than being damsels in distress. The best part is when the demons merge with the mechasaurus, which leads to some really cool looking designs.
I can't say to much about this title. It was short, only one volume. But it was a fun quick read, though pretty insubstantial. It pretty much is a by the books team up title, checking off all the tropes as it goes along.

What do you mean it's done by someone other than him?
This is 100% Nagai's work, and artstyle.
Well, he does have a studio he works with and to me it looks like a lot of the art has been done by assistants. It isn't uncommon.
Take a look at the art in this:
Faces are bit off, also the shading is very different. To me it looks like someone drawing in his style by maybe not him.
The faces do look a lot more like Ken Ishikawa's work. Who was the creator of Getter Robo. Who also worked with Go Nagai on a lot of projects. His art looks at lot like Nagai's at first glance. So much so I bought an art book that was his thinking it was Nagai. But when the art didn't look right I had a friend confirm that the name on it was Ken Ishikawa.
