  1. Wow. I can’t believe you’ve been so reserved and haven’t read any of the modern books. I want to know how bizarre the jump from the superheroics of the 60s to the jaded vigilantes of the 2000’s will be!

    BTW, you should check out my site, Unleash The Fanboy. More than welcome to guest post.

      I think it will be a long time before I get to the books of the 2000’s! I’m not sure it will be a “jump,” probably more of a gradual thing. But yes, I anticipate a drastic change in temperature over the next 50 years of comics.

      Thanks for the invite to post on your site, but the Marveous Zone keeps me pretty busy, along with http://www.collinsport.net, where Russ and I host a Dark Shadows podcast. Not enough hours in a day!
