BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #153

The year 1977 had given way to 1978, and in the first days of the new month, the mailman arrived with another subscription copy of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA for me. I would end up with two copies of this issue--a few weeks later I'd be having a birthday, and as a gift my friend … Continue reading BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #153

BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #152

Around this time, the mailman brought me the latest issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA as I still maintained a subscription, although those days would soon draw to a close. This isn't an issue I have a whole lot of strong memories about. I will say that somebody in the DC production team is still … Continue reading BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #152

BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #141

Back to back subscription copies meant that I also got the next issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA during this period. It was another great issue in the all-new giant format, a big ol’ chunk of new comics every month. Like this month’s FLASH, the cover is by Rich Buckler again inked roughly by Frank … Continue reading BHOC: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #141

BHOC: TEEN TITANS #46

I had missed the first issue of the TEEN TITANS revival, and I skipped the second (though i recall seeing it on the stands at the time–there must have been other books that I wanted more) but with this issue I finally took the plunge. Kid Flash’s prominent placement probably didn’t hurt. It must be … Continue reading BHOC: TEEN TITANS #46

BHOC: DETECTIVE COMICS #467

This was a fairly inconsequential issue of DETECTIVE COMICS that I bought in the little candy store next door to my barber’s office. It’s another one where I didn’t recall any of the details of the lead story until I cracked it open again today. The Rich Buckler cover is all right, decently dramatic, a … Continue reading BHOC: DETECTIVE COMICS #467

BHOC: ALL-STAR COMICS #63

I bought this issue of ALL-STAR COMICS at my usual 7-11. It wasn’t a surprising purchase as I was in the tank for the Justice Society by this point, and so ALL-STAR was a favorite of mine. But boy, that collection of logos at the top of this cover isn’t doing the art any favors. … Continue reading BHOC: ALL-STAR COMICS #63

BHOC: BATMAN #265

This was the other super hero comic that I got in the 3-Bag with JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #120. I don’t have all that much to say about this issue of BATMAN, as while it’s a competently done issue, nothing about it especially stuck with me–with one very specific exception that we’ll get to later.  … Continue reading BHOC: BATMAN #265
