Rise of the Superhero

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steve W Feb 19. 8 Replies

I couldn't find any discussion on this topic, which kind of boggles my mind since this is EXACTLY the place where this topic should be discussed. But I blame myself since I've had a copy of this…Continue

What's In a Name?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave Palmer Dec 13, 2017. 13 Replies

It occurred to me randomly the other day that most of the all-time greatest comic book people (U.S.-based, anyway) have first names that start with the same letter. I started jotting down some names,…Continue

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

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Scooby-Doo Team-up 36 - A tribute to Silver Age DC comedy
"Since Stanley & His Monster are included in this Scooby-Doo story, I wonder if The Three Mouseketeers made any cameos? Although they, like virtually every other DC funny animal comic of the mid to late 1950s (other than Fox & Crow), were…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Scooby-Doo Team-up 36 - A tribute to Silver Age DC comedy
"In fact, Buzzy made it onto the front cover of some of those Binky's Buddies issues (he's the blond guy). Since we almost never even mention the guy, whose long (77 issues) comic book run ended in 1958 in the early days of the Silver Age…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Scooby-Doo Team-up 36 - A tribute to Silver Age DC comedy
">> Buzzy wasn't licensed and didn't make it into the 1960s << That's not actually true. Buzzy co-starred in a comic book that launched in 1969, called Binky's Buddies (he was, natch, one of the buddies)."

Dave Blanchard replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion What Should Be Collected Next?
"I think that's probably why we may never see those early to mid 1950s runs of Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman -- there wasn't enough interest in the early year to justify more Archive collections, and the Silver Age stuff didn't…"

"I don't suppose Buzzy, Judy or the Bilko crew made it into this story too, did they?"

Dave Blanchard replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion What Should Be Collected Next?
">> That's the other irony of these lists sometimes. When we say "I'd like this to be collected," it could be because we think it should be on library shelves for posterity or other collectors should get the thing we liked…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion What Should Be Collected Next?
"Walter wrote: >> EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO HARVEY... and, leaving Marvel behind << Actually, EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO HARVEY was a DC title from the 1950s. HARVEY was the Marvel title. And I'm still amazed to this day that Marvel was able…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Scooby-Doo Team-up 36 - A tribute to Silver Age DC comedy
">> I don't know who the guy with the "7" on his shirt or the girl wearing the tie are. << It's hard to know for sure since they're not drawn by Henry Scarpelli or Bob Oksner, but I'd guess they're…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
">> I just as firmly believe that Ages are time periods, not styles or plotlines within each title. I don't know that anyone has ever argued that Michaelangelo left the Renaissance at a different time than Raphael or Donatello.…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
">> Ages are about excitement with superheroes, and  none of the 1,000 people who bought 7 million copies of Jim Lee's X-Men #1 were excited about the superhero adventure they were about to read. Just like the people who bought…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
"OK, that's what I thought you were thinking about (since I'm sure you've mentioned this a time or two before, though we sorta tabled this discussion for a few years), but I didn't want to assume. So now I'm going to flip…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
"So then, what was it exactly that you say ended the Bronze Age in November 1989?"
May 22
Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
"The Bronze Age ending point has to be a moment that "ends" something, not that starts something. The end of the Golden Age brought on horror and funny animal comics. The end of the Silver Age brought on sword and sorcery and the…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Review: Silver Age Suicide Squad and Silver Age Adam Strange Omnibuses
"Luke wrote: >>  I didn't know the DC line shrank in 1958 << If memory serves, a big part of that line-gutting was the cancellation of most of their funny animal titles. I think FOX & CROW was the only one to survive. Also,…"

Dave Blanchard replied to Kirk G's discussion Silver, Bronze, Iron, Modern Ages: Start & End Dates
"I would go along with Mr. Age on the Golden Age dates and the start of the Silver Age; I'd pull the end date of the Silver Age out to December 1970, which was the end of Mort Weisinger's long run on DC's Superman titles. I agree with…"
