I’m relatively new to comics. Started around 2000. Read stuff like Hack/Slash and Evil Ernie. Really liked BTAS and got on the DC train soon after.
Anyway, I’ve tried reading older comics a few times and noticed that with some titles, I had a really hard time swallowing the overloaded and hammy dialogue. The stories weren’t bad, just some of the dialogue and monologs get so long winded like this post and I get bored.
I checked out the New Titans. Read the first set that was available here. I liked the story a lot. Cool characters. But, man, that dialogue was such a ham and cheese sandwich. And don’t get me started on Cyborg’s ‘mebbe’ and other creative ways of expressing his, um, yeah. Product of the times for sure.
So, I don’t know what age those issues fall in (golden or silver or whatever) but I don’t really enjoy much of the dialogue. Stories are pretty interesting though.
Anyone else have trouble reading with older comics?
