BHOC: BLACK LIGHTNING #5

I was excited to get my hands on this issue of BLACK LIGHTNING after the cliffhanger of the previous one, where the new crime-fighter found himself confronted by an angry Superman.

I don’t recall where I got it or under what circumstances–it may even have been bought for my brother Ken as happened on occasion, and I eventually wound … Continue reading BHOC: WONDER WOMAN #225
