Silver Age Highlights

Back in May, I posted my list of the best Golden Age issues on DC Universe. My criteria were historic value, overall quality, and entertainment value.

Read more about that here: Golden Age Highlights

I finished my run through of all the Silver Age issues on DC Universe. I made a list of the 100 best Silver Age issues using the same criteria. This list is also viewable as a public list under my account.

I’m defining the Silver Age as Superman #76 (3/5/1952) until the late sixties. You can read more about my decision on the Golden Age in the discussion of the post at the link above. I chose to end the Silver Age with DC’s shift to new creators in the late sixties. The shift, as it appears on DCU, begins with Action Comics 351 in 1967 and stretches into 1970 depending on the title. This period is when creators like Fox, Broome, and Kanigher gave way to creators like O’Neil, Robbins, and Wolfman.
