Come.. to "The Dark Age of Comic Books" if you dare...

Welcome to this community, which is dedicated to chronicling, discussing, complaining about and hopefully coming up with alternatives to, the current situation in the comic book industry, which I call "The Dark Age".

To those who're wondering what I'm talking about.. First of all, let me envy your innocence. Secondly, to explain, the "Dark Age" of comics is what I call the current trend in comic books to have "serious, dark and gritty" stories, often involving senseless and gratuitous violence or mature content, in increasing numbers..

Now, while I personally think mature, serious stories have their place, when done right, I think the current comic book industry is, frankly, oversaturated with them. ...And not even well-written mature stories, for that matter.

So, who's with me?
