I wouldn’t trust those begonias either, Malefactor.

 

And yeah, Wallflower was right — that Femtastic Four reunion didn’t go according to plan. In fact, it landed her in jail. Remember?

 

The first suspect has been engaged. Who else is the Hero Business profiling? Any guesses?

The Femtastic Four! I remember those gals.

 

Of course, Wallflower is a prime suspect in this little mystery. I mean the girl has issues with her former teammates. Then again, she DID suffer through all those patrols with Wingman.

 

And looks like Wallflower found a new sidekick in Daisy. Wonder what happened to Bud?

And the 8th storyline begins! With a prelude to a secret origin.

 

Readers will recall Morgan’s longtime friendship with Glamazon, and their shared interest in cute boy superheroes! Will history repeat itself? We’ll soon find out!

 

The Hero Business is running early this week because I’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con this week in the SMALL PRESS ARENA – Aisle O at table 05…. with Hero Business books, sketch cover comics, limited-edition prints, original art and more! If you’re going to the show be sure to stop by!

We’re back in business this summer, starting with this special BONUS!

 

This week, we’re looking at the cover to the 7th Hero Business storyline, “Crisis At Comic-Con.” With a concept of dual Brodys, what better cover to homage than the classic Flash #123 by Carmine Infantino?

 

Check out the original cover:

Flash_v1_123

 

I hope one of the Brodys was able to save those precious Uberman comics! They look less than NM – the horrors!

 

 

Speaking of Comic Cons, I’ll be at San Diego Comic-Con next week in the SMALL PRESS ARENA – Aisle O at table 05…. with Hero Business books, sketch cover comics, limited-edition prints, original art and more! If you’re going to the show be sure to stop by!

But before I go, I’ll be posting the first page of the eight storyline. Here’s a hint: It’s titled “Hexes and Ohs!” — Any guesses on who will be featured in this one?
