    Default Comic Books: Your Favourite Decade

    What is your favourite decade for comic books and why does it mean so much to you?

    For me it's the 1980's, which was when I first started reading comics. The first two titles I remember buying were Uncanny X-Men (starting #174) and Legion of Superheroes (starting #282). Those teams were a big part of my teenage years and I still love reading the issues from that era now, downloaded digitally to my Kindle.

    At the time I went on to collect lots of titles, including New Mutants, New Teen Titans, Alpha Flight, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Spider Man, Batman, Superman etc. and I recently got into Daredevil from the same period.

    My interest had waned somewhat by the end of the decade and I've never really got back into comics in such a big way but over the last couple of years I've really enjoyed reading all those issues again.

    1960s - Cheesy, corny but fun and wild
    1970s - Not too sure to be honest
    1980s - Probably the pinnacle of storytelling for me
    1990s - Awful art but good developments
    2000s - A lot of good stories
    2010s - Probably one of my favourites due to the boom for independent comics
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    70's for me. Comics were .20-.25 cents.

    I'm going to say the 80's. There were of course fun mainstream comics, but I also discovered the world of comics beyond Marvel/DC.

    The 80's. Lot of great stuff from that decade.

    Went with the 2000s, as with others mostly just because it's when I became as active reader.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Die - Paper Girls - Runaways - The Wild Storm

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    Comics evolved so much in the 80s - and those were my formative years, so I picked that.

    That said, comics have continued evolving. I think every decade his improved on the one before - but that evolution has slowed a bit from that massive burst in the 80s.
