BHOC: SECRET ORIGINS OF THE SUPER DC HEROES

SECRET ORIGINS OF THE SUPER DC HEROES
1975

This was DC’s answer to Marvel’s very successful ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS. It was also one of the most highly-awaited books in my household from the time I saw the first house ads for it. Big and expensive, I had to wait for Christmas before I could afford my own copy. And what a book it was!

18 stories featuring both the golden age and the silver age origins of all of DC’s icon characters–some of which haven’t been reprinted since. A cornucopia of talent and reading enjoyment. 

I read my copy literally to pieces, as witnessed by the crappy condition of the (detached) cover on the scan above. So if anybody’s got a copy in reasonable condition that they’re looking to sell…

2014 Note: I’ve replaced my copy twice over since this was written, once in softcover and then upgraded to hardcover sometime later.
