My Rankings


Golden Age
I like the drawings, the simplicity, and the glamour of it. Most of all, it's offer great deal of imagination and desires for more and that's why l like this age so much and it's my favorite.


Silver Age
Great Stories and fit in my schemes of things and I like the early days of the Justice League, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four. My 2nd Choice.

Bronze Age
About the Bronze Age, I was working too much and did not venture in it and therefore never got into it at all period. I didn't buy much stuff this age because of work.

I'm actually reading some Golden Age JSA stories at the moment and there's Doctor Fate and Spectre's origins in my DC Secret Origins TPB. I wish they reprinted Golden Age JSA full runs but I guess that's not in the cards right now except for the trinity. Also finished Silver Age Flash and caught some Jay stories in Greatest Flash Stories Ever Told. Great stuff. Also reading Batman/Superman World's Finest. I'm amazed at how well the stories actually held up. Especially in the World's Finest collection. Many of the stories were from the Golden Age and continued into the Silver Age.

I completely agree with you on this Acid, and I wanted to say this and I still think the Golden Age is my favorite and I've updated my previous post to make myself more clear to all of you here.

I think a huge reason I also greatly admire the Golden Age and Silver Age is because of how many concepts they pioneered in the comic industry. Intergalactic space cops and even something so trivial as heroes teaming with other heroes to show that they exist in the same world are all ideas that we take for granted but were probably ground-breaking at the time. When I read these stories, I'm often blown away by some of the ideas they already started tossing around back in the 30s and not long after.

But if I have to say only one, it's Silver for that's where my favorite artists and a lot of great stories are from


I really gotta say I have a brand new appreciation for Silver Age after rereading some of the old stories and seeing the art that was produced. Carmine Infantino's team up with Frank Giacoia's inks on the Flash still hold up to this day and same goes for Gil Kane's work on Green Lantern. Gil's pencils are very well showcased in Silver Age GL where as a lot of Gil's pencils are overpowered by Romita Sr.'s inks in Spider-man and while the work looks terrific in Spider-man, you don't really get to see his pencils show through. :smgrin:
