BHOC: SUPERMAN FAMILY #190

Another book that I picked up brand new was the next issue of SUPERMAN FAMILY. I followed this series right up until its demise, though I really couldn't tell you quite why.

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
