BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #11

However much I may have been beginning to explore the new-to-me world of Marvel Comics, I was still a die-hard DC reader as well, and so when the latest issue of SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS showed up, I swiftly purchased a copy. It was, believe it or not, one of my favorite titles during this … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #11

BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #13

Okay, so I fouled up yesterday, thanks to a typo in my notes. It wouldn’t have been SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #14 that I bought after reading all of those FANTASTIC FOUR and MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS issues, but rather the preceding issue, #13. Oops! So I’ll ask your indulgence to push that review forward in your minds … Continue reading BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #13

BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #14

After my new experimentation with the Fantastic Four and Marvel Comics, things got back to normal with my next purchase: the final installment of the “Atom’s Quest” saga that had been running in SUPER-TEAM FAMILY. In this final part, the Atom finally got to take headliner billing (albeit behind Wonder Woman, an acceptable compromise) rather than … Continue reading BHOC: SUPER-TEAM FAMILY #14

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #10

The next book I would have picked up was this issue of a favorite regular title, SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS. Here, the cover copy tries to make some hay out of a question that isn’t much of a question at all, given that the Secret Society has been trying to kill Captain Comet for something … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #10

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. It also clearly had a focus on the world of the Flash–not only his protege Kid Flash, but also his enemies the Trickster and Grodd … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #8

BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #7

This may have been the best month in fictitious Superman actor Gregory Reed’s entire career, as he was a featured character in not one but two full comics, ones that I bought and read back-to-back. I’d imagine that the fact that the Superman movie was starting up production was the source of this sudden interest … Continue reading BHOC: SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS #7
