BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #246

I bought this issue of WORLD’S FINEST COMICS while on a visit to my grandparents’ house–not a typical purchase for me, as I had come to realize that WFC was one of those DC super hero titles that read “wrong”, and so I would avoid it if there were other options available. In this instance, those … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #246

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #245

I picked up this issue of WORLD’S FINEST COMICS, despite its dollar price tag, because its lead story was going to wrap up the ongoing Martian Manhunter storyline that I had been following in recent issues of ADVENTURE COMICS, and that I liked quite a bit. So this was my first encounter with the phenomenon … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #245

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #243

Another issue of WORLD’S FINEST COMICS about which I remember very little. This is another book that might have originally been bought for my brother Ken, but I’m not sure. I do know that I wouldn’t normally have picked up an issue of WORLD’S FINEST without good reason as I’d already identified it as one … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #243

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #226

So he was a constant fixture in my life, though not seen quite so often as my Grandparents were. He was also the … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #226

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #240

Once again, I’m pretty certain that this comic book first belonged to my brother Ken. At this point in my comic book evolution, while I didn’t yet know who editor Murray Boltinoff was, I understood that WORLD’S FINEST COMICS along with BRAVE AND THE BOLD and SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES were “wrong” somehow–that they … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #240

BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #239

Another book that I think was bought for my brother Ken rather than me, but that I ultimately ended up with over the years. WORLD’S FINEST COMICS was a strange read, in the same sort of way that BRAVE AND THE BOLD was, in that it didn’t seem to follow the same unwritten rules as … Continue reading BHOC: WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #239
