Anyone who has done research into Silver Age Marvel comic books for sale quickly realizes that the Marvel line of comics during that period were the most popular among comic book readers. The Silver Age came after a decline of superhero comics following the end of the Second World War. It started within the framework of the CCA, the Comics Code Authority, which was used to regulate the supposed effect that the horror comics of the time were having on it young readers.
Perhaps the first introduction of a superhero comic into the Silver Age was the 1956 publication of the re-vamped Flash, updated from his Golden Age version. This began a resurgence of interest in comics as other Golden Age heroes, including Superman, The Batman, and Wonder Woman, were also reintroduced and updated. These comics were primarily targeted for comic book readers at the Elementary School age. Before that time, it wasn’t cool for teenage High School students to read comics.
These new comics were introduced by the then-Premiere comics publisher of the time, DC. They prospered with themes of secret powers that made normal people special and clever resolutions to the continual machinations of their counterparts, the Super Villains. But a new company, Marvel Comics, exploded on the scene with characters like Spider Man and the Fantastic Four. These characters were not as comfortable to children as Superman or Wonder Woman: these new arrivals had flaws and spent a lot of time with mundane concerns like paying the rent and balancing super deeds with school work. However, these themes resonated with the teenage and college-age culture. These were characters they could identify with. The complex characters and realistic plot lines thrust Marvel Comics to the forefront. It also continues to keep these Silver Age Marvel comic books for sale, and they have remained collectibles for decades.
