My Golden Anniversary with Batman

Started this discussion. Last reply by Emerkeith Davyjack May 6, 2016. 12 Replies

Fifty years ago I bought my very first comic book: Justice League of America # 45 (June 1966). I don’t know the exact date, but the on-sale date was April 26, 1966, so I must’ve bought it within a…Continue

Batman-Hogan's Heroes Connection?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave Blanchard Jan 10, 2016. 4 Replies

I was watching a Season Two (1966-67) episode of "Batman" the other day, and as Batman and Robin are climbing up the Bat-rope to capture Shame, Col. Klink of "Hogan's Heroes" pops his head out of the…Continue

Happy Birthday Mr. Age!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kirk G May 23, 2013. 18 Replies

So normally my pal Hoy posts these birthday tributes to our standard-bearer, the highly esteemed Mr. Silver Age, Craig Shutt, but as the day has almost drawn to a close and I just now remembered, I…Continue

Favorite Infantino Stories

Started this discussion. Last reply by Peter Bosch Apr 24, 2013. 35 Replies

Carmine Infantino's passing away hits me the same way that Julie Schwartz's or Curt Swan's passing away hit me. These were giants among comic book creators, men who shaped my very childhood with…Continue

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Happy birthday to our host, Mr. Silver Age, Craig Shutt
"I've been going off the grid a lot lately, but that's really no excuse for missing Mr. Age's birthday. Luckily, having reached whatever advanced age Mr. Age has reached, he probably will think it's his birthday up until the…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Happy birthday to our old pal Don Rickles, born 90 years ago today, May 8, 1926!
"The death of a loved one always seems to bring families back together, even those that have been away for quite some time, so it's nice to see Uncle Don being remembered here at the Mr. Age Forum. Since the cover to SPJO # 141 gets posted every…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Steve W's discussion A Cut From a Cover
"For those who thought my last one was too easy, try this one from the Silver Age. I'll give you a clue: Jack Kirby had nothing to do with it!"

Dave Blanchard replied to Steve W's discussion A Cut From a Cover
"Wasn't meant to be difficult. I just used that one because I know how much Mr. Age loves seeing that cover appearing in his forum."

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Ugly Silver Age covers
"I'm not sure whether "ugly" is the right term to describe BUNNY covers, but some of them sure hurt my eyes to look at them, and the incredibly lame puns were painful to read, too, so while the line art on these comics might be okay in…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Short and quirky posts
"My pal Hoy wrote: That was true in my case. I read Batman comics off and on through most of the 1960s and early '70s, but always thought he was just an eccentrically dressed detective or the guy who pulled stuff out of his utility belt in the…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Short and quirky posts
"But did Superman evaporate the syrup with his super-speed headmop, or did all that sticky stuff end up in his hair? And if so, how did he wash it out -- the usual solar bath in the hot flames of the sun? I guess mopping it up was better than…"

"Fred W. Hill wrote: I think it was reading too many DC comics that had scenes like this that put me off of them even by the time I was 7 years old in 1969, coming to the conclusion that they were insulting to my intelligence but the Marvel comics I…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion What Should Be Collected Next?
"A while back, I wrote: KOBRA was very uneven at first, beginning as a Jack Kirby throwaway idea that was heavily reimagined by Martin Pasko (who wrote the entire series, and I think it's the best stuff Pasko ever did). Okay, I need to amend…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Emerkeith Davyjack's discussion Elvis Presley during the Silver Age
"I've always wondered if Perry White somehow had the goods on Clark/Superman, knowing they were one and the same, given how often Perry bosses Superman around with no fear of Kryptonian heat-vision accidentally incinerating the cigar in his…"
