BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #185

While I was at Heroes World, I took advantage of the rare opportunity to fill in a couple of the holes in my FANTASTIC FOUR collection, including this issue and the next. This finally bridged the gap between the new off-the-racks issues I had been buying and the older ones that had been showing up … Continue reading BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #185

BHOC: MARVEL COLLECTORS’ ITEM CLASSICS #6

I don't remember at all what prompted it at this late date, but for some reason my family wound up going to the far-off mall that housed the Heroes World store once again. Possibly my father needed to get something he'd left at his office, which was in the same complex. Or maybe I just … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL COLLECTORS’ ITEM CLASSICS #6

BHOC: SUPERMAN #323

Bought this issue of SUPERMAN in the same weekly 7-11 run as the MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS issue I wrote about yesterday. That's a nice cover by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, an incredibly talented artist who worked for DC for decades but who has been somewhat overlooked--primarily because he did relatively few regular stretches on titles, … Continue reading BHOC: SUPERMAN #323

BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #77

I bought this issue of MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS on one of my regular weekly 7-11 runs, and I can remember having it with me and being over at the house of my neighbor and sometimes-friend Charles Grella down the block. As usual, it reprinted an issue of FANTASTIC FOUR from a few years earlier (9 … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #77

BHOC: CAPTAIN AMERICA #221

I bought this issue of CAPTAIN AMERICA on my regular weekly trip to the 7-11 on New Comics Thursday, as I had the previous two issues. As we'll see, this was a bit of a patchwork issue, the result of pages not being completed in time for the prior one. Marvel was having shipping difficulties … Continue reading BHOC: CAPTAIN AMERICA #221

BHOC: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #180

I bought this, my second regular issue of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN on one of my regular weekly Thursday trips to the spinner rack at the 7-11. I had started following the wall-crawler's adventures the previous month but I was still somehow a bit lukewarm on them. It wasn't until I wound up buying a copy of … Continue reading BHOC: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #180
