"I've heard the same point made about the Silver-to-Bronze transition — the Silver Age ends with the Fourth World (or Commander Benson's 1968 cutoff for that matter) and the Bronze starts with the New X-Men, for example.
"That last point cuts both ways: horror, terror and weird were precisely what the critics were holding up as the worst of the worst. Of course it's entirely possible both reasons apply.
I reread the JLA's debut recently as part of going…"
"I still think Flash succeeding, however, slowly, is enough of a game-changer to count. Without him, do we even get to B&B 28? And Showcase 4 isn't as clearly separate as (to use your example) early Swamp Thing from Vertigo.Yes, it was one…"

"The only time I've ever heard that term before the Commander's comment was when Travis Morgan tossed it at a Soviet plane dogfighting with him in this first story. So thanks for explaining it Richard."
"I just reread the first three Outsider stories. They came out in a six month period, then stopped for almost a year before the Blockbuster/Outsider story. This makes me wonder if Schwartz and Fox planned to wrap it up fairly soon but couldn't…"
"Oh, that wasn't a criticism. The fine details of the Silver Age are normal conversation here. But I also think there's something we're missing. The Commander doesn't do trick questions but he's come up with some cleverly…"
