What's Your Favourite DC Comic Book Era?

Postby AcidDragon » Sat Sep 20, 2014 11:11 pm

What is your favourite DC Comic Book Era of all time? It's a tough question to answer, at least for me it is. So tough that I'm going to need to think about this even though it's my poll... :fasmgrin: :gabgrin: :gawwgrin: :wwfgrin: :krgrin: :gammgrin: :hhaqgrin:

Bronze Age is the clear winner so far.....with one vote! I vote Bronze Age because that is when I discovered comics. Those books and the way the characters were depicted are indelibly etched upon my psyche. After collecting for most of my adult life I have developed an appreciation for the Silver Age and the Golden Age. The juxtaposition of the publishing history with the continuity is fascinating to me.
I feel like we need one more division, 1985 to present is a long stretch. Maybe premillennial and post millennial? Doesn't matter, still voting Bronze :hhgrin:

I myself prefer the mid 80's through the mid to late 2000's (as in, before 2010) - I'll admit, I've hardly read enough outside that era to really know and properly judge it. But, since I do in fact really enjoy the age I voted for, it's only fair to say that yes, it is my favorite. But even visually, I do prefer costume variants from the mid 80's to late 90's over the more modern stuff or previous designs. Following by what HectorHall said about splitting up the Modern Age, if I had to, I'd likely vote pre-2000's.

I really think the mid-80s to late 90s should be its own era separate from what came after. Call it from Watchmen/Year One/DKR/Crisis to Morrison's JLA. Then the Modern Era starts with The Authority.

I'm voting for Bronze Age because of Kirby's DC work (and Miller's Daredevil shows up in the first half of the 80s. ROULETTE), but my preferred era is probably the second half of the 80s - Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing, The Question, Green Arrow, The Shadow...Tons of great stuff at DC. And I suppose you could follow that into the early 90s a bit before Image took over. Barry Windsor-Smith's Weapon X came out in '91.

That makes sense guys so I decided to split the Modern Age up into 85 to 2000 AKA Dark Age and 2000 onward.

I went with the Modern Age Dark Age era. I have a lot of great memories and still continue to read a lot of content from tat era. There's a lot of great Post 2000 work too but Pre-2000 gives me that special nostalgic feeling.

This is nearly impossible for me to choose. When I think about voting for one era, I remember something about another that I loved. I'm going to go with Bronze Age. There's a lot to love about that era including the some of my favorite Batman stories of the 70s, the variety of DC Multiverse stories and at the tail end of it, we got Anatomy Lesson and Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Mine, been always the Silver Age ... because the Justice League of America was grand back in those days of Comics.
