When it comes to listing the BEST of anything – ANYTHING is capable of being the best. That’s why when I set out to prove to all of you that Flash Comics, 104 issues between January 1940 and February 1949, was the best Golden Age comic ever put together, I had to put some weight behind it – how long-lasting are these Golden Age characters and are even relevant today in DC’s New 52. The characters from Flash Comics: Flash, Hawkman, and Black Canary give us that. Also taken into account was the amount of reprinted material. There’s a strong case for All-America Comics, which of course gave us Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Hour-Man, the Spectre, and the Sandman, but with my criteria, it comes up a little short.
Oh and I do give reasons why Action Comics, Detective Comics and Adventure Comics don’t quite make my cut.
Lastly, keep in mind that this is all in good fun, so take this whole podcast with a grain of salt – please.
