Writing-wise, the Bronze Age hands-down.

Art-wise? As much as the post-Crisis books have sucked, they've had some terrific artists along the way. Ordway, Gammill, Grummett, Jurgens, McLeod, Kitson, McGuinness, Mahnke, Wieringo, Reis, Lee, Bermejo, and Benes are all top-tier talents. If there was a way to mix their art with the quality of writing from the Bronze Age, I'd be a happy camper.

My first novella, Wounds of the Heart (, has been published. Check it out, if you like.

The Bronze Age.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Quote from: "NotSuper"
The Bronze Age.

"An age where men and women wore their greatness as easily as they wore their clothing or their names..."

I voted for the Schwartz/Bronze era yesterday.

Interestingly enough, as of this posting, no one's seems to have even anonymously voted for the Byrning or the current era.

The problem here is there are two current eras.

The era of the various animated series and related comic books.  Kara In-Ze, Braniac being responsible for destroying Krypton, etc.

The era that is post-Birthright and is in a state of flux depending on how the new Supergirl turns out and is birthright canon
