I'm not surprised. We have similar tastes in regard to Silver Age.

I pretty much agree with what Ed said about the Golden Age stuff.

I don't dislike it. The stories can be fun and clever, but for me it's hard to read just because it's slow (it's very wordy and repetitive) and predictable and the art was simplistic. That was fine for the day--it was a fledgling medium finding it's footing in a world of pulp paperbacks and radio drama.

The Silver Age (especially 5 to 10 years in as the Marvel revolution and Schwarz's refitting of the DCU were gaining ground) found a much better balance between art and words.
