Return to a "Heroic Age" Atomic Kommie Comics™ NEVER left!

The lead feature in last Wednesday's USA Today's Life section was about Marvel Comics' change of story concepts, dropping the grim 'n gritty themes inspired by Watchmen or The Dark Knight Returns and returning to a more upbeat, fun approach called The Heroic Age, closer to the Golden or Silver Age,while promising to remain "edgy" and "contmporary"!
We're pleased, since that's what Marvel was...back in the Silver Age!
DC had already announced similar plans with their In Brightest Day overhaul of the DC Multiverses, but their PR people weren't quite as effective in generating publicity as Marvel's...

But, we at Atomic Kommie Comics™ have been presenting the best of the previous Heroic Age on our collectible Lost Heroes of the Golden Age of Comics™ line for the past several years!
The vintage covers we use were the creative expressions of people who sought escape thru entertainment media from a world where financial disaster and war were everyday events!
(Come to think of it, that sounds a lot like today, doesn't it?)

Back then, it was the late 1930s-early 1940s.
The Great Depression was slowly ending, and World War II was slowly creeping up on us!
The average Joe and Jane turned to radio, the movies, and pulp and comic magazines for brief respites from everyday worries!

Today, the Great Recession is slowly ending, and, while the Iraq War is ending, the Afghanistan War is building up!
Instead of radio, the average Joe and Jane have tv in various forms and the internet.
And, we still have movies and comic magazines!

And, we still have heroes!
Come celebrate with us!
