Episode #57 – Super Heroic Ages

If you’ve read comics for any length of time, chances are you have heard the phrase Golden Age or Silver Age. These phrases can apply to any medium, but in comics they are very specific eras; the one thing they all have in common is they involve superheroes, and each age saw the debut of countless new character additions to comics. Today the panel takes a look at each of the separate ages of comics and the heroes that came during that period.
