BHOC: MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS #67, 68 & 69

Continuing to go through the comics I bought during my first trip to my very first comic book store, the Heroes World outlet in Levittown, I also grabbed up these three consecutive issues of MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS. These were the rest of the story begin in issue #66, which I'd previously bought and represented good … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS #67, 68 & 69

BHOC: MARVEL'S GREATEST COMICS #24

At this point, you'd be right to detect a pattern here. We're still talking about the comics I purchased during my very first visit to my very first comic book shop, Heroes World in Levittown.

BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #70

I had thought at first that this was another comic that I got out of a 3-Bag, but looking at my copy closely, I think that rather I must have gotten it from my friend and classmate Donald Sims. Don was the first other kid I knew who regularly read comic books, and while we … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #70

BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #62

This is another book that showed up in the big bin of somewhat-old comics at my local drugstore, and being on the hunt for Fantastic Four stories, I picked it up. It must be said, this really isn’t a great cover–all of the heroes have their backs to us and are oriented around the edges. … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #62
