BHOC: FLASH #225

I can remember the rush of adrenaline when I came across it. We were in a Waldbaum’s grocery store, not the one we typically went to, and they carried a small selection of DC’s 3-bag “Super-Pac” comics. The books in those bags were always several months old (to avoid competing with day-and-date distributors, I would think). … Continue reading BHOC: FLASH #225

BHOC: WONDER WOMAN #213

First saw this one in a DC House Ad, and the presence of the Flash meant that I had to have it. Another 7-11 purchase unless I miss my guess, and the second installment in the Wonder Woman’s twelve labors plotline. This particular issue of WONDER WOMAN was produced by Cary Bates and Irv Novick, … Continue reading BHOC: WONDER WOMAN #213

BHOC: SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #203

But somehow, I didn’t–the style felt weird to me, in the same way as those earlier BRAVE & BOLD and WORLD’S … Continue reading BHOC: SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #203

BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #112

One of my favorite early comics, the second issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA that I owned was a 100-Page Spectacular, purchased for my by my father when we stopped in to the 7-11. The price on these Super-Specs had crept up from 50 cents to 60 cents, another clear indication that a price increase … Continue reading BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #112
