Hello Everyone I'm New

Postby Screwballsquirell » Wed Jul 26, 2017 4:25 am

Hello Everyone I'm new here at the "Comic Book Forum" my father began buying comics for me when I was about 5 years old (1965), I vividly remember seeing the checkered tops design DC comics at the newsstand 1966-67. I am mostly interested in golden and silver age comics. I live in Medicine Hat,Alberta Canada. I am a big fan of artists "Dan Barry" "Alex Toth" "Carmine Infantino" I'm happy to have the chance to reminisce with other comic collectors

Most Sincerely
Wayne :P

Welcome aboard, Wayne! My favorite cover artist from the '60's is Irv Novick. I love the way he drew war action on the Capt. Storm series:
