BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #223

While we were at Heroes World, by younger brother Ken picked up a comic book as well, this brand new issue of INCREDIBLE HULK, a title he was still following buoyed by his interest in the weekly television show. His interest, though, was waning a bit, and by the next issue he would be finished … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #223

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: MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #65

I've gone over this before, but it bears repeating. In 1978, there were no trade paperbacks, no Marvel Masterworks, no organized system reprinting the comic books of earlier days. There were a few scattered and irregular collections and that was about it. But Marvel, at least, maintained a regular and robust reprint program as a … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #65

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: INCREDIBLE HULK #193

Another book from the Drug Store's Big Bin of Slightly-Older Comics, this was another issue of INCREDIBLE HULK bought by my younger brother, Ken, but which eventually wound up with me. At the time, the Hulk had begun to appear on television, having starred in a pair of TV movies (with a series in the … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #193

BHOC: ACTION COMICS #480

I bought this issue of ACTION COMICS on one of my weekly runs to the 7-11. This would have been right after the second INCREDIBLE HULK television movie aired for the first time. That production led to a regular weekly program for the green goliath and turned my brother into a short-term Hulk booster. But … Continue reading BHOC: ACTION COMICS #480

BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR IN THE HOUSE OF HORRORS

I was wholly in the tank for the Fantastic Four by this point, and my interest in them led me to purchase a copy of this Big Little Books release from a local Stationary store. It had been issued several years previously, during the period when the first FANTASTIC FOUR cartoon was airing on Saturday … Continue reading BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR IN THE HOUSE OF HORRORS

BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #204

This was another book that came out of my drugstore's Big Bin of Slightly Older Comics and was purchased by my brother Ken during his brief Hulk phase. This issue eventually wound up with me, as most all comics did. And this issue of HULK I genuinely enjoyed, its time travel story really grabbing me. … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #204
