Me too. Mostly Neal Adams and his collaborations with O´Neill.

And of course John Byrne.

And I was a big fan of Green Lantern and Green Arrow, and of course Neal Adams´ Batman, especially with the Wayne Penthouse and that Trans Am looking Batmobile.

Each and every issue of each and every Superhero comic book is someone punching someone else in the face. Or kicking them in the face. Just try counting the number of times the word DEATH is used on just about any comic book from the 1960s forward. And worst of all, in the 1970s Marvel Comics Group had a comic book magazine called The Son of Satan, complete with an upside down Pentagram on his chest. How in the world did they publish that one? Did they have to agree that Papa Satan would never show up in the comic because that would be just too much? Did the Son of Satan have to lose the bout everytime he fought his arch enemy The Son of God? Such weird comics in the 1970s.


Completely untrue of course. Not every superhero book is about people fighting each other.

I have hundreds of Marvel comics from the 70s/80s. For me, that was their best era - the art & stories were top-notch. Yes, most feature violent conflict - big deal. That's always been a part of superhero books.
