BHOC: DC SUPER-STARS #17

I got this issue of DC SUPER-STARS while visiting my grandparents in Valley Stream, New York. They were weekly visitors to our home in Farmingville, making the hour drive up virtually every Saturday, but on occasion we would go out to meet them at the home they shared with my Aunt and Uncle--possibly for some … Continue reading BHOC: DC SUPER-STARS #17

BHOC: ALL-STAR COMICS #69

Picked up this issue of ALL=STAR COMICS at my local 7-11 as usual. ALL-STAR was a favorite series of mine, so I'd avoid missing an issue if I could. This cover blows the big end surprise of the issue by touting the first appearance of the Huntress within it--unfortunate, as her reveal is literally the … Continue reading BHOC: ALL-STAR COMICS #69

BHOC: SHOWCASE #95

The second issue of SHOWCASE featuring the All-New Doom Patrol. I have a strong feeling of having picked this issue up while at my Grandmother’s house, though I’m not 100% certain of that. It’s got a dynamic Jim Aparo cover that really grabbed me, despite the liberties taken with Robotmans new design. You can also … Continue reading BHOC: SHOWCASE #95

And so, I found this copy of FIVE-STAR SUPER HERO … Continue reading BHOC: 5 STAR SUPER HERO SPECTACULAR

BHOC: VENGEANCE SQUAD #5

Another book from the latest Modern Comics 3-Bag find was this issue of VENGEANCE SQUAD, a not-terribly-exciting action-adventure series that aspired to the level of a 1970s cop show. But creator Pete Morisi did have a very interesting George-Tuska-influenced art style which was appealing, if stiff. Also, I’m particularly taken with the way that the … Continue reading BHOC: VENGEANCE SQUAD #5
