We apologise again for the fault in the moderation. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked.

It's POSSIBLE that your competitive spirit has displaced your sense of courtesy.

BTW... there are 2 things to consider about the creation of a forum, one is obviously demarking a separate era of comics... the other is actually having traffic and post there....


Think there'd be enough?

Yes there would!
take two months to debate and Poll demark date and we could come to an agreement.

The modern age cannot stretch on forever! Soon Kids born at begining of Modern age will have kids collecting comics. Way to long!
Two Generations in one comic age?

Absolutely yes. I for one am just waiting. I don't even use the current Modern Forum since the main focus there is mainly on brand new books and current storylines. I don't have the patience to scan all the pages looking for 80s or even 90s comic talk. A Copper forum would give people like me another location to participate in. I'm willing to guess that it would gather more interest than either the Comic Magazines or Comic Events Forums.

Well quiet frankly the marking of the era has already been done by the Guide. Now I state again and again that no one has to agree with the years or criteria, but I think by establishing it in the source that collectors have used for decades to learn about the whole Comic Book Age historical timeline, we've as close to formally established it as we possibly could. Like I said, the term existed *before* us, but now it's here to stay.

I can agree with you on the starting year, just not the choice of a final year.

I still think comics ages are falling into 14 year cycles..
Gold 1939-1953
Atomic 1953-1956 (the exception)
Silver 1956-1970
Bronze 1970-1984
Copper 1984 - 1998

?? 1998-2012.




1998-up is clearly the Plastic Age.
That's about when the slabbing began right?
I wasn't there at the conception...

1. Already been established by Overstreet, as per Arnold.

2. Yes. I think there is. Most forumites started collecting in that era, so there's definitely familiarity. The best book of the 80's thread in comics general would be quite at home in a Copper Forum.

I thought it was the Chromium/Holofoil Age. So many possibilities...

Yup. We could argue this point for ever and never get a consensus. I say we go with OS just to keep it simple.
