There was a time when many thought that comic books would get kicked to the gutter the way LP records, 8-track and cassette tapes had been. After the many times that Superman and Batman died heroic deaths only to return, the fact was that with the arrival of the 1990s and early 2000s, super heroes seemed destined for early graves because of declining comic book sales and poor writing. Slowly but surely, the veil of death lifted, the grim reaper’s grip loosened and a new age of superheroes was born. Blame Sam Raimi, if you will, or even Ang Lee’s Hulk.
Fact is, comics are here to stay. Permanently.
