BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #9

Fairly certain that I bought this issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS at the same time as the SHOWCASE issue I previous wrote about. Now that I had direct access to my local 7-11, I was able to pick up comics more frequently and in greater number, assuming that I had the cash to pay … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #9

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.

There was also an interesting story here … Continue reading BHOC: DC SUPER-STARS #5

BHOC: FOUR STAR SPECTACULAR #2

I missed the first issue of FOUR STAR SPECTACULAR, which is a shame, as it reprinted among other things a redrawn Golden Age Flash story. But I was there for when the second issue arrived at my 7-11–and while a Kid Flash story was maybe not as compelling as one featuring Jay Garrick, it was … Continue reading BHOC: FOUR STAR SPECTACULAR #2
