More Bronze Age Blasts From The Past!

Monday, 24 April 2017 15:02
I am Mr. Bronze Age for a reason. That reason is -- I LOVE the Bronze Age of comics!! It is the era in which I grew up and they are the comics of my well spent youth! I still to this day get an elated feeling whenever I come across a book from the Bronze Age era! As I have mentioned several times before in my almost three years of writing this column, I have been trying to reorganize my collection (my collection consists of two storage buildings full of comics plus two rooms in my house that are overflowing with my comics, books, magazines and DVDs).

Mr. Bronze Age's Pre-Comic Shop Memories

Monday, 10 April 2017 17:08
My readers have heard me speak reverently several times in the past about the Rock Bottom Bookshop, which I frequented in my childhood. We comic book fans of a certain era, pre-comic shops, and WAY before Previews, you could never be sure that you would get the books that you wanted. That is why I loved going to the Rock Bottom! The Rock Bottom, an institution in our town nowadays, was founded and managed by Ms. Wilda (NOT Wilma) Hardin. Read more...
I have written twice before of the days in which a comics collector would have to go to several stores in order to get their favored books. I have thus far written about four such places, some better than others. But THIS time, I will be writing about the very BEST convenience stores in which I found my books!! Read more...

Adventures At The Local Comic Shop - Part 2

Wednesday, 15 March 2017 15:30
Last week, I told of a couple of convenience stores that I used to go to back in my childhood. I HAD an actual comic book store, complete with both new comics and vintage back issues in my town. But the owner did not stock EVERYTHING for the discerning collector. Back then in the 1970's and even into the early 1980's, a kid had to cover a great deal of ground in order to find ALL of the books that they collected each month. I never paid all that much attention to the names of the stores, so when I wanted to go to a particular store, I had to use descriptive nick names to tell my parents which store I needed to get to then.

I just finished re-reading my friend Rob's book "Hey Kids, Comics!!" (the book was named after a website of his)! The book is filled with essays by various comic book pros and fans alike. And a common theme in these essays, is that of how much of a struggle it could be to hunt down your favorite comics (back in the day, you had to cover some ground in order to get to ALL of your favorites). And , those essays served to remind me of how lucky I was as a kid growing up in the 1970's. Read more...

Mr. Bronze Age Goes Back To School

Friday, 17 February 2017 19:11
A few months back, I (alongside my friend Mike), went back to my old Junior High School for a day of wondering the halls, checking out our old classrooms and doing a great deal of "Remember When...". And what was the special occasion, you might ask? Ramay Junior High School was having a special Open House Day in honor of the school's Fiftieth Anniversary. Read more...

The Bogus Rogues - Flash #15 Review

Thursday, 09 February 2017 15:25
If you will recall from my previous column, I had decided to (due to all of the good reviews associated with DC Comics' new "DC REBIRTH" books) to try out a couple and see how I liked them. Last week, I reviewed Batman #15 and found it an enjoyable issue (I was not TOO happy with the ending, however) and this column is the Flash #15's turn! The issue begins with the Rogue's Gallery breaking into a museum in order to steal a huge golden bejeweled statue of Mercury, God Of Thieves. The assembled Rogues are their leader, Captain Cold, his sister The Golden Glider, The Mirror Master, the Weather Wizard, Heat Wave and the new Trickster. Read more...
