BHOC: SUPERMAN #313

Part three of this formative four-part story by writer Marty Pasko dropped next in the pages of SUPERMAN, and I dutifully picked it up, wanting to find out what would happen wit the mysterious plague, Amalak, Supergirl and all of the hanging business from the preceding issues. I quite enjoyed Pasko’s tenure as the regular … Continue reading BHOC: SUPERMAN #313

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #8

The next comic I purchased was this issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS, which I’d been anticipating as it had been called out prominently in house ads running this month. It also clearly had a focus on the world of the Flash–not only his protege Kid Flash, but also his enemies the Trickster and Grodd … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #8

BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #11

I first heard about this story on the DC Hot-Line, the short-lived 800 number where, once a week, readers could call in to hear news about upcoming DC projects, at a cost of fifty cents per call. Like every other idiot in the world, I called faithfully every Monday, when the new messages would go … Continue reading BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #11

BHOC: ACTION COMICS #471 and #472

I picked up these two issues of ACTION COMICS at the same time, from the same rack–I must have been flush with cash, possibly the change from a haircut (my Dad would give my a few bucks and send me off to our barber down in the center of town) as I know they were … Continue reading BHOC: ACTION COMICS #471 and #472

BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #95

I remember this issue of GREEN LANTERN AND GREEN ARROW being noteworthy to me for a couple of reasons, none of them immediately apparent. But as summarized nicely by this cover, the plot calls for Green Arrow to assassinate the President of the United States, then Jimmy Carter. And I can recall, many months later, … Continue reading BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #95

BHOC: SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #228

This book I’m not sure about. I might have bought it, or it might have initially been bought for my brother Ken. But I think it was mine. A strange choice at any rate, as SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES wasn’t a huge favorite of mine, as we’ve covered previously. So maybe it was … Continue reading BHOC: SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #228

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #245

I picked up this issue of WORLD’S FINEST COMICS, despite its dollar price tag, because its lead story was going to wrap up the ongoing Martian Manhunter storyline that I had been following in recent issues of ADVENTURE COMICS, and that I liked quite a bit. So this was my first encounter with the phenomenon … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #245
