It's often forgotten how big a star BB was in the Golden Age. He was the 2nd super hero, after Superman, to get his own self-titled comic book, beating out even Batman. It's a shame guys like BB, Black Terror, the original Cat-Man, and other big-time heroes faded away when so many others have carried on.
130 million back then and can't support an ongoing nowadays. So disappointing. :(
If not for the ancillary revenues, I doubt Superman or Batman would still be published given how low their sales are. Readership has dried up.
