Welcome to the Grim & Gritty Age of Comics!

Hello and welcome! I created this blog as a place to discuss classic comics from the Bronze and Dark Ages of comic books. As a kid growing up in the 1980s and 90s I obsessively collected comics during this time and have always had a fondness for comics from those periods. As the popularity of fan reviews and critiques exploded in recent years with sites such as YouTube and WordPress I noticed there weren’t many people who were looking at and examining classic comic books. So I hope to correct this and examine comics from the 1970s to the 1990s. While I will mainly look at how comics changed from the lighthearted fare of the Silver Age to more mature story lines during this period I will also like to look at funny curiosities every now and then. As my knowledge of comics only applies to Batman, Spider-Man, Superman and the X-men we will focus on these particularity. So I hope you enjoy my reviews and follow me as I explore this area of comic book history 🙂
