BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #221

This was another issue of INCREDIBLE HULK purchased by my younger brother Ken and which eventually ended up in my possession. Ken had become a regular reader of the adventures of the Green Goliath, inspired by the TV show, and he'd stick with the series for several months--which meant that I got to read it … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #221

BHOC: MARVEL TEAM-UP #57

Here's another book that came out of a 3-Bag in that era. This issue of MARVEL TEAM-UP didn't wow me, and in fact I don't own it today--somewhere along the lines I traded it away. It was yet another Spider-Man comic book in which the allure of the wall-crawler eluded me. Despite having watched the … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TEAM-UP #57

BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #182

BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #190

I bought this issue of FANTASTIC FOUR on the Tuesday it came out from my local 7-11. Unfortunately, it represents a bit of a nadir in terms of the quality of the title during this period. Regular penciler George Perez was going through some personal crises at the time, and had blown his deadline on … Continue reading BHOC: FANTASTIC FOUR #190

BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #219

During this period of time, my brother Ken developed a fascination with the Incredible Hulk and so began buying comic books featuring the green goliath. Like his other forays into the world of four colors, this one also proved fleeting, and these books all eventually wound up with me. For myself, I found it difficult … Continue reading BHOC: INCREDIBLE HULK #219
