BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #33

This issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE was another that I got in a 3-Bag, and quite likely the reason that I picked up that particular 3-Bag in the first place. As I've said before, during this time, FANTASTIC FOUR was my favorite comic book, and so anything featuring a member of the FF drew me like … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #33

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #42

I bought this issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE on one of my weekly Thursday afternoon jaunts to the 7-11, for that is when the new comic books arrived. That's a nice cover by George Perez and Terry Austin, not that I needed to be convinced by any cover image to pick the book up. The Fantastic … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #42

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #41

As usual, I bought the new issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE when it showed up at my 7-11's spinner rack. In this case, I did so despite having little interest in Brother Voodoo--the Marvel mystical and monster/horror characters really didn't interest me, and I somehow lumped Brother Voodoo into that grouping, for as little as I … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #41

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #30

Time has moved on and the wheel has turned for the character a little bit, but it can't be overstated just how popular the Thing was during the 1970s. He was just behind Spider-Man in terms of his draw power, the Wolverine of his era. And unlike Wolverine over the past few decades, if you … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #30

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #24

Here's another book I got out of a 3-Bag. This was likely the reason I bought the 3-Bag in the first place, as FANTASTIC FOUR had become my favorite comic book series and the Thing was on his way to becoming my favorite Marvel character (though at this moment, I was still more partial to … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #24

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #40

I bought this issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE as usual at my local 7-11 as MTIO was now on my regular buying list, thanks to the Thing being the headline character. But I can't say that the series was all that wonderful during this period. More often than not, the stories were quick throw-away affairs that … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #40

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #39

The next issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE turned up at my 7-11 this next week, with what would be the final chapter of a story that had been running for three issues now. This part is written by Roger Slifer, who had not worked on the preceding issues and it goes off in some strange directions--enough … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #39

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #14

This was another older issue that turned up in the drugstore's Big Bin of Slightly-Older Should-Have-Been-Pulped Comics. New books would show up there on a routine and rolling basis, and so any time my family had an occasion to be in there, that's where you'd find me, rummaging through those books for whatever new treasures … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #14

BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #183

It was always the most exciting thing when a new batch of 3-Bags would show up somewhere, and you'd suddenly have access to issues that you had missed. In those days before there were comic shops, this was the only way one could find back issues (apart from mail order--and I was never confident enough … Continue reading BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #183
