    This was originally  published by me at my blog www.climbingsky.com Growing up I was an avid comic book reader. I read everything because I had just about everything… inherited from older cousins and neighbors. I horded and collected them and read them many times. I had a soft spot in those days for Gold Key comics. Comics that featured vivid, pulp-stylized painted covers and some “quirkier”...

      I agree with you on several factors here, especially with the Idea man and technology. We see it today as younger generations are getting addicted to the new technological toys that continuously come out. I enjoy the older Gold Key of Magnus, and others, I have been slowly collecting the valiant comics from the early 90s with our old favorite characters.

    What are people's experience with electronic comics on an iPad (ComiXology, Marvel Unlimited, etc.)? I am wondering if it is something worth exploring.

      I much prefer print (either floppies or TPs) but I have a large catalogue of digital and the best combination I found that works is something like a Galaxy Tab 4 (which I have) or, now, a Tab A or Tabs S2 (all Samsung) running the ComiCat app. Overall, the combination is good enough to read even poorly digitised 70s comics. Landscape orientation obviously.

      I haven't tried Marvel Unlimited but I do use Comixology. Frankly, Marvel and DC really need to get their act together on digital. Their pricing for a virtual comic (especially those printed 30-40 years ago) is not realistic - though I understand the market forces they are up against.

    I am enjoying the Batman '66 comics. Besides reprints of Silver Age classics, does anyone have any recommendations for similar NEW comics: nostalgia, old-school, fun not dark?

  • Just returning after a long hiatus to comic books, I just discovered Batman '66. As someone who grew up in the 1960s, I love having Catwoman and Mrs. Peel together. Steed's and Emma's are so magnificently rendered...

      It should have read: " Steed's and Emma's dialogue..."
