Obscurity of DC Club -- Reichuss Mansion

also house of mystery because even if people have heard of it
I doubt they read any of it I haven’t other then one brave bold comic

I’ve read a lot of obscure books over the years. I know there are a lot more of them, and I’d only have to list the ones I own or have read…

this is actually on the list already!

These are all going on now

We have a different series about Arion on the list already :slight_smile:


Like I said, I can come up with a lot of obscure stuff.

And I’ll readily admit, I haven’t read through the whole thread…

Lol that’s alright!

I was reading through a wiki on the publishing history of DC comics and I had to rein myself in on listing more obscure books than I did, because I saw bunches of others…

There are definitely others, but this will have to do until I can get back to things…

They’ve all been added, except for Black Condor, as I think most comic fans know him

No problem. It’s up to you to decide whether the criteria are met or not.

I don’t know what is or isn’t on DCUI, I’m afraid. I was just listing obscure books I’ve read over the years.

It’ll give some of you a reason to dive into those dollar boxes at your local shop… Most of what I’ve listed is 80s-90s stuff, and the great majority of it isn’t worth an awful lot. I just remember enjoying them when I read them back in the day.

And now that I’ve hijacked this thread for far too long and probably ruined some people’s chance to suggest some of their favorite books practically no one has heard of (sorry), I’ll shut the heck up.


I definitely want to read them all, but I can’t use them for the club if people don’t have access to them. However, I will request most of them to be put on DCUI.

not at all!

Don’t worry about it! If you have recommendations, go ahead! That’s why this thread is here! I’m just sorting through the ones that you posted above.

I understand about not being able to use them for the club if they aren’t widely available. Still, the titles are out there if anybody wants to go to the trouble to track them down…

I was going through the list at wiki and found myself going, “Oh that one! I completely forgot about that!” It’s been a long time since I read some of those. I was a different person then (younger, mainly) so maybe they aren’t as great as I thought they were at the time, but I generally try not to judge. I’m spending my money and my time, so I try to just sit back and enjoy the ride…

Oh, I know I said I was done, but I have to add:

The Cowboy Wally Show Kyle Baker 2003 Vertigo
Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children Louapre/Sweetman 1989 30 issues

They probably won’t be on DCUI either, but obscure, definitely, and BSUC is obscure and weird…

Hey @ObscurityofDCClub! I’ve been debating with myself about it the Female Furies are obscure or not. I’ve decided to just ask you all since, if they’re considered obscure, we may be using them in for the club.

Are the Female Furies obscure
  • Yes
  • No
  • Who are they (which is also a yes)
  • They’re obscure, but not enough to be focused on in OODC

That’s a tough one, it all depends on who the character is that hasn’t been seen on Superman The Animated Series or a lego video game about villains. :thinking:
So maybe.
