BHOC: SUPERMAN FAMILY #188

This issue of SUPERMAN FAMILY introduced one of my legitimately favorite obscure and forgotten DC heroes, so it's a noteworthy release to me. But we'll get to that in a little while. It's got a very nice, dynamic Jose Luis Garcia Lopez cover as well--JLGL was making some waves with is work in fandom circles, … Continue reading BHOC: SUPERMAN FAMILY #188

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #13

I bought this issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS at my local 7-11, and it was another comic book which my household ended up with multiple copies of--though in this case, for a different reason. I would have a birthday in about a month's time, and as a gift my friend and classmate Don Sims … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #13

BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #221

This was another issue of INCREDIBLE HULK purchased by my younger brother Ken and which eventually ended up in my possession. Ken had become a regular reader of the adventures of the Green Goliath, inspired by the TV show, and he'd stick with the series for several months--which meant that I got to read it … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #221

BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #102

This was another book that I picked up on my weekly trips to 7-11 on Thursdays when new comics would drop. Green Lantern was at this point one of my favorite characters, primarily due to his stories in the back of FLASH. I wasn't quite as wild about the GL/GA incarnation of the character--while I … Continue reading BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #102

BHOC: DEFENDERS #57

When the cover price on comic books went up to 35 cents, this presented certain new challenges for readers. Primary among them was the fact that a dollar would no longer get you three comics--you needed to be packing an extra nickel. I didn't really yet have a ready source of income at this point, … Continue reading BHOC: DEFENDERS #57

BHOC: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #140

There was a little store in one of the mini-malls where my Mother regularly shopped--I can't recall if it was a candy store or a stationary store or what. But the important bit here is that it carried a tiny selection of comic books. Tiny--just a few titles at any given time. So each time … Continue reading BHOC: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #140
