BHOC: ACTION COMICS #458

We now begin to approach an important crossroads in my comic book reading history. My family frequented a local drugstore, part of a chain, pretty regularly, and one day during this summer, the store put in this huge bin of comics. In my mind’s eye, it was massive, though in reality it was probably a … Continue reading BHOC: ACTION COMICS #458

BHOC: BATMAN FROM THE ’30s TO THE ’70s

BHOC: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #137

I got this issue of BRAVE AND THE BOLD while out on a shopping trip with my Mom and brothers. It came from an unfamiliar and irregular outlet, so my selection was limited, which somewhat explains the choice. I was iffy on B& B (it was still one of those series that read “weird” to me”) … Continue reading BHOC: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #137
