The Golden Age in a Flash!Jay-circle

The Golden Age of Comic Books was a period of time when Comic Books were at there finest. Some of the greatest writers and artist took center stage and left a legacy for generations of kids and Comic Book industry workers alike. DC (formerly National) and Marvel (formerly Timely) rose but were second to Captain Marvel and Fawcett. None the less the Golden Age is probably best remembered for the birth of the first major superhero, Superman.
