Welcome to the first posting of the Comic Book Curmudgeon blog.
I’m a 40 something fellow who read and actively collected comic books in the 1970s and slightly into the 1980s. I mostly read DC comic book. I quit reading comics when DC had its “Crisis on Infinite Earths” storyline. I had invested a lot of time in understanding the DC multiverse. With “Crisis”, DC completely scrapped their 40+ years of history and re-wrote it. I’ll grouse more about that some other time.
At any rate, my purpose with this blog is to celebrate the golden, silver and bronze ages of comic book. I promise that I’ll try to keep the criticism about the newer stuff down as much as I can. Come with me now on a journey into yesterday. This was a time when heroes were heroes and villains were villains. Most comic book stories lasted one issue and character cross-overs were a special event.
