Thought Bubble #4: What ‘Age’ Of Comics Is This?
The comics medium attempts to answer a lot of big questions: What makes someone truly evil? What's wrong with childlike wonder? How, father? How do I do it? What do I use...to make them afraid? In that spirit, ComicsAlliance's Matt Wilson is asking comics creators, retailers and commentators some big questions of his own...
Bizarro Back Issues: The Joker Commits Moon Crimes in ‘Public Luna-Tic Number One’ (1969)
Saying that the Joker has done a lot of weird stuff in his time is putting it pretty mildly. From trying to patent poisoned fish to serving as Iranian ambassador to the United Nations, the dude has been up to some pretty strange stuff. But never, in a 70-year history of thematic villainy, has he done anything stranger than he did in July of 1969, because that was when he turned his dastardly crim

Silver Age Remix Comics: Green Lantern’s War of Light [Original Art]
From Blackest Night to Flashpoint to Fear Itself, today's super-hero comics are all built around the Big Event. But what if those stories had happened forty, fifty, or even sixty years ago? That's the question that ComicsAlliance is trying to answer with the help of artist Kerry Callen (who drew the incredible "Silver Age Marvel" pieces), by reimagining how the biggest modern-day DC Comi
Is Stan Lee Hoarding All the Silver Age Artwork? [Video]
"Storage units full of artwork. He has no idea what he has. He's never looked at it." An offhand remark in a very remarkable Stan Lee video suggests that the Marvel Comics architect may be unknowingly in possession of a significant collection of lost Silver Age artwork, perhaps the largest collection in existence...
The 9 Craziest Moments of the Silver Age Batman Annuals
This week sees the latest release from the "DC Comics Classics Library" line, which -- despite its extremely awkward name -- has been a showcase for some great stories that haven't gotten the reprints they deserve. This time around, they're offering up "Batman Annual" #4 - 7, a quartet of 80-page giants from the mid-sixties...
Today’s Comic Book Covers Reimagined in the Silver Age
It goes without saying that comics, like everything else in the word, have changed quite a bit since the '60s. Art style, storytelling technique, even the identities of the characters themselves are drastically different today than they were at the height of the Silver Age...
The Silver Age of Comic Books in Hilarious Newspaper Headlines
Earth dealt with some hefty problems in comic books during the Silver Age, and luckily for modern-day readers, those exclamation-laden headlines have been preserved to demonstrate just how crazy a time it was to live in. During those simpler times, The Flash read the sports page, Superman stole 1,000 cops and Green Lantern made front-page stories by losing his ring...
February 1966: The Best Comics Month Ever?
If you asked most modern comics readers when the industry was putting out its best material, they'd probably reference the generally accepted high point of 1986-1987, and they'd have a pretty good case backing them up: "Crisis on Infinite Earths" was certainly the best example of continuity-as-storytelling and led to the great John Byrne relaunch of Superman, Walt Simonson's run on "
