Welcome on this blog full of information about the comics in the Silver and Bronze age and offcourse the comics themselves.

The term ‘Silver Age’ refers to a general time period in which the comic books were originally available. The Silver Age is commonly considered to have begun in 1956 and to have lasted until about 1975.

The Bronze Age of Comic Books is an informal name for a period in the history of American superhero comic books usually said to run from 1970 to 1984. It follows the Silver Age of Comic Books, and is followed by the Modern Age of Comic Books.

The Bronze Age retained many of the conventions of the Silver Age, with traditional superhero titles remaining the mainstay of the industry. However, a return of darker plot elements and storylines more related to relevant social issues, such as racism, began to flourish during the period, prefiguring the later Modern Age of Comic Books.

I will focus on the period end 56 – end 85 with some 86 when a serie lasted until somewhere in 86.

Some series are a continuation from my Golden Age Comics Blog.

There are offcourse the comics about the wellknown Superheroes like Batman, Spiderman, Superman and many others, but also anthologies like Action Comics, Detective Comics, Showcase and less known characters from the Silver and Bronze age like the Ant-Man, Black Lightning, Longshot and many others.

You can access the information and comics through the sidebar.

The comics are in packages, inside these packages you will find the comics in cbr/cbz format.

You can view the comics with any cbr-reader like CDisplay or ComicRack.

I did not scan the comics myself only collect them from various sites on the internet, internet archive, Usenet Newsgroups and torrents.
So thanks to all the scanners and uploaders.

This blog is purely ment to preserve the comics and to enjoy them, no financial meanings are involved, if you like the comics buy them as long as they are availabe, because nothing can beat the feeling of reading a real comic.

If you find something wrong (downloads, numbering, information) please let me know so that i can correct the error.

Thanks to the following sites for information :

  1. Dear Boutje, the last time i had my eyes full of stars and such a feeling was my last Christmas as a child … 36 years ago. Some months ago, i asked for Journey into Mystery non-digital and complete with the non-Thor stories, you made it … and today, you make it happen again … Fantastic Four, Thor … i never found these non-digital ( i started reading comics three or four years ago ), it’s a pleasure for the eyes. I began to read Marvel comics starting in 1961 and your new blog will be a GREAT source for getting these.
    Many thanks again for all the work you’ve done.

      1. Sorry, Boutje, I’d meant to post that list in a Text Document like the last one and forgot myself and copy/pasted it in the comment. Didn’t realize until I’d hit “comment” and couldn’t delete it then…!

        Anyway, here are all the ones listed (and a few more) that came out before 1986

  5. Hey, brother! I am a fan of your sites going back 12 or more years to the Comicsworld days. As a child of the 60s, this is amazing. For the past several years I have been slowly making my way through the Silver Age of Marvel and DC, with some occasional Golden Age thrown in. In 2011 I came across a very thorough spreadsheet of Marvel, DC, and other publishers (which I’d love to share) that was sortable by release date. So I made a reading list to go by, as if I had subscriptions to all my favorites in childhood. Thank you so much for what you do!

      1. That was me (LeeMcDaid) with the DC Shadows, Boutje. But for some reason I’m posted as anonymous… this is just a test to see if I’m signed in correctly this time 🙂
