Issue #55 – “The Golden Age”

Issue #55 – “The Golden Age”

In this week’s issue we discuss the earliest era of comics – the Golden Age!

Officially, the Golden Age ends with the debut of the Barry Allen version of the Flash in 1956, so for this next episode, we be tackle comics, characters, stories, and creators from BEFORE that time! Before that we go through the latest in DC news, and then we talk about the newly released Ninja Batman!
