About Golden Age Comics

The young boy looked around to make sure no one was looking before yelling "Shazam!". A magic lightning bolt flashed from the sky and in his place stood Captain Marvel, one of the most popular superheroes of the Golden Age comics period. The most fondly remembered comics of this period were Golden Age DC comics, which included tales of such heroes as Batman and Superman. Oddly enough, it was Whiz Comic's Captain Marvel who was the most popular hero of this time period, outselling other comics by a wide margin. Another popular genre of this time were Golden Age horror comics. With such titles as The Vault of Horror, Adventures into Darkness, Tales from the Crypt, and other equally spine-tingling names, this genre of comics suffered a blow with the introduction of the Comics Code in the mid-1950s.
