Subject: The Golden and Silver ages of Comic Books- thoughts/experiences?

Written By: yelimsexa on 07/25/12 at 1:19 pm

It seems like this forum has a dearth of comic book topics, and it seems like interest in them should be appreciated with all of the movies based off of these characters in recent years. Let's start by doing an all-out thread on everything relating to these, and can be a good place for beginners who know nothing about comics. However, it can also be a good opportunity to tell us your memories growing up if you were around and also your favorites. Basically, the "Golden Age" of comics ran from the release of Action Comics #1 in 1938, containing the first ever appearance of Superman, with Detective Comics containing Batman's first appearance also part of this era. This lasted until the Comics Code forced comics to tone their violence down in the mid-1950s, in which the Silver Age began, which included new franchises such as Fantastic Four, Spider-man, The Incredible Hulk, Justice League, and X-Men, which ended around 1970. Too bad that these comics don't cost 10 cents like they did given the value of them nowadays!
