BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #101

I bought this issue of GREEN LANTERN on one of what had become my regular weekly Thursday trips to my local 7-11--Thursday being the day that the new comics came in, a fact that I had worked out over the preceding summer. I was a regular reader of GL's adventures--he was my second-favorite DC hero … Continue reading BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #101

BHOC: INVADERS #3

In addition to new old issues of FANTASTIC FOUR and MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS, the drug store’s big bin of somewhat older comics had also received copies of a few issues of THE INVADERS, which I picked up as well. This one had a somewhat messy cover–how is it that Captain America is seemingly standing in … Continue reading BHOC: INVADERS #3

BHOC: BLACK LIGHTNING #5

I was excited to get my hands on this issue of BLACK LIGHTNING after the cliffhanger of the previous one, where the new crime-fighter found himself confronted by an angry Superman. And the issue was pretty good! The one place it really fell down is in the incomplete inking of Vince Colletta. I know that … Continue reading BHOC: BLACK LIGHTNING #5

BHOC: FLASH #255

The mail carrier also delivered me my subscription copy of FLASH right around this time. This was the middle chapter in a three-part story. Multiple part epics were beginning to become more frequent at DC, which was good in that, between having read the DC titles for so long and beginning to discover the Marvel … Continue reading BHOC: FLASH #255

BHOC: ACTION COMICS #476

I bought this issue of ACTION COMICS at my usual 7-11. In fact, this was the summer where, now being allowed to travel to the 7-11 on my own, I buckled down and spent a week determining when the new comics would arrive each week. Rather than simply asking somebody, I instead made a pilgrimage … Continue reading BHOC: ACTION COMICS #476

BHOC: GIANT-SIZE DEFENDERS #4

This is another older comic book that I had forgotten about, but which I still have. It was bought for my brother Ken initially, and only found its way into my possession over time. So I definitely read it back in the day. And while I can today testify that it is indeed a very … Continue reading BHOC: GIANT-SIZE DEFENDERS #4

BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #96

This issue of GREEN LANTERN began a four-part storyline that I recall really liking and being into at the time, though I find I can’t recall any of the specifics of the story today. Bought it at my usual 7-11, which was becoming a regular hangout for me. The issue opens with an alien Green … Continue reading BHOC: GREEN LANTERN #96
