comic book eras
The Silver Age is considered to be the era in which drastic changes were seen in comic book superheroes. Artists and creators altered their powers, actions, locale and origin but their names remained the same. Such changes during the Silver Age caused many characters and superheroes to be renewed in a whole new way. However, only a small number of superheroes of high and popular quality stayed the same, such as Batman, Superman, and Wonder woman.
The Silver Age is well known for its highly developed artwork. Artists used more detail and brighter colors to make the superheroes stand out. The comics were action filled and more realistic, making it more appealing to the eye. The format and dialogue were more precise and straightforward as well. In addition, the characters emotions changed as well. The Silver Age was one of the most crucial eras in comic book history due to its finer detailed images and improved work. The creators placed more emphasis on detail by making colors brighter and alluring. Action was one of the most important improvements. The format of the comics themselves portrayed more emotion and gave much more life to the characters. However, the biggest change was that superheroes were made more humanlike. Comic books began to talk about issues that were actually happening around the world, such as World War II, racism, drug abuse, and other issues that were affecting readers in real life. This transformation caused readers to buy more comic books.
