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?
