BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #14

SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS was approaching its final days, not that that was known either to me or to the people who were producing it. It would become a casualty of the fabled "DC Implosion" in just a few short months. But for now, it was continuing to be published and it was still a … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #14

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: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #11

However much I may have been beginning to explore the new-to-me world of Marvel Comics, I was still a die-hard DC reader as well, and so when the latest issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS showed up, I swiftly purchased a copy. It was, believe it or not, one of my favorite titles during this … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #11

BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #13

Okay, so I fouled up yesterday, thanks to a typo in my notes. It wouldn’t have been SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #14 that I bought after reading all of those FANTASTIC FOUR and MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS issues, but rather the preceding issue, #13. Oops! So I’ll ask your indulgence to push that review forward in your minds … Continue reading BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #13

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #10

The next book I would have picked up was this issue of a favorite regular title, SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS. Here, the cover copy tries to make some hay out of a question that isn’t much of a question at all, given that the Secret Society has been trying to kill Captain Comet for something … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #10

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: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #7

This may have been the best month in fictitious Superman actor Gregory Reed’s entire career, as he was a featured character in not one but two full comics, ones that I bought and read back-to-back. I’d imagine that the fact that the Superman movie was starting up production was the source of this sudden interest … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #7

BHOC: DC SPECIAL #27

This was the first issue of DC SPECIAL to go all-new, and which signaled the end of reprint comics at DC for the time being. There’d still be a few stragglers, but from this point forward, virtually everything the company published in regular comic book form (and even in Treasury format) would be original material. … Continue reading BHOC: DC SPECIAL #27

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #6

I think this was probably my least-favorite issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS. Gone was the overarching threat of Darkseid and his minions from Apocalypse, gone were many of the villains that I cared about and was interested in. Instead, what we got was for all intents and purposes an issue of CAPTAIN COMET. And … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #6

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #2

Now, this was a series that I truly loved as a kid. I can recall coming upon this issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS on the spinner rack at my local 7-11. I was a big Green Lantern fan based on his back-ups in FLASH and appearances in JUSTICE LEAGUE, and Dick Giordano’s cover was enough … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #2
