BHOC: THUNDERBOLT #58

Now this was another comic book that I welcomed--not so much for the lead Thunderbolt story as for the back-up featuring my new obscure favorites, the Sentinels. As with the other issue I had sampled, this one was reissued by Modern Comics in the 1970s. They had contracted to provide and sell 3-Bags of comic … Continue reading BHOC: THUNDERBOLT #58

BHOC: THE MANY GHOSTS OF DOCTOR GRAVES #25

In addition to the issue of THE MANY GHOSTS OF DOCTOR GRAVES that we spoke about yesterday, Modern Comics reissued at least one other issue of the series as a part of their line. This one, however, was entirely devoted to one-off weird tales, and consequently was of scant interest to me as a reader. … Continue reading BHOC: THE MANY GHOSTS OF DOCTOR GRAVES #25

BHOC: THE MANY GHOSTS OF DOCTOR GRAVES #12

As I've mentioned in the past, not only did the Modern Comics 3-Bagged reprints of past Charlton titles include a wide swath of their super hero and adventure material, but they also contained a number of titles in other genres; war, martial arts and mystery/suspense being chief among them. Most of those books were of … Continue reading BHOC: THE MANY GHOSTS OF DOCTOR GRAVES #12

BHOC: JUDOMASTER #96

Whoever was responsible for selecting which old Charlton comics would be reissued in the 3-Bags put out under the Modern Comics imprint made some baffling selections. Take JUDOMASTER for example. Modern reissues four issues of the series: #93, #94, #96 and #98. Why not consecutive issues? Who knows? It may have been that these were … Continue reading BHOC: JUDOMASTER #96

BHOC: JUDOMASTER #94

This issue of JUDOMASTER was another of the books from the Charlton back catalog that Modern Comics reissued in the 1970s and sold three-to-a-bag through a network of discount department stores, supermarkets and the like. And it was another title that came into my possession during this time. I wasn't quite as crazy about Judomaster … Continue reading BHOC: JUDOMASTER #94

BHOC: HERCULES #11

There were other comic books that I got in those Modern Comics 3-Bags as well as the aforementioned super hero titles. The company also reprinted a smattering of suspense, martial arts and heroic fiction books. And as you probably know by now if you've been reading this feature consistently, those were of only limited interest … Continue reading BHOC: HERCULES #11

BHOC: E-MAN #4

E-MAN #4 was another issue of the series that came into my possession sealed within one of the plastic 3-Bags of reissued classic Charlton releases put out by Modern Comics in the late 1970s and sold in discount department stores, supermarkets and the like. There was a feeling of these books being a bit "off-brand" … Continue reading BHOC: E-MAN #4

BHOC: E-MAN #3

E-MAN was definitely popular with somebody who was making the selections for what to reprint as part of the Modern Comics 3-Bag offerings that would be distributed through discount department stores and supermarkets. Of the ten-issue run of the series, six of them were reissued by Modern, albeit in a haphazard order. I really think … Continue reading BHOC: E-MAN #3
