I just don’t like brutal or depressing stories that much.
As a distinguished figure from a different company once said, I’m looking for “comic books where superheroes fight giant apes on the moon”, where the problems are ridiculous and the solutions are a demented kind of genius you can only find in comic books. Batman '66 has a good tone for me, and I know I should be reading some old Flash stories…
(and weirdly enough I do love the Morrison Doom Patrol and the Jack Knight Starman run, but maybe that’s not the right tone?)
Anyway, what’s good in the Silver Age, and what’s good outside it? What’re your favorite issues, storylines, whatever makes you go “Aw yeah that’s a comic book all right!”? No story is too silly, no plot is too far-fetched, no art is too Jack Kirby. What do you guys love?
