Why I joined this site.
« on: December 02, 2014, 09:10:04 PM »

Hi,my name is Bill Malovich. I'm from Quincy,Massachusetts.Just 4 miles from downtown Boston.I joined this site simply for the pleasure of spending a little time reliving old ( very old. I'm 63) memories.And to convince my grandkids that some of the golden and silver age comics were pretty damn good in their own right. As I'm now retired,I'll probably be spendinga little timehere while lazing away on the beach or on the water.

The Worlds changed alot since we were youngsters but theres always something deep inside us that doesn't change, and we should be thankful that we still have that sense of wonder.

Hello there

My name is Jayaram kinnatinkara and I am from India. I joined this site because I am a nostalgia buff having been brought up on a steady diet of comics - Captain Marvel , Superman and cowboy comics during my school days. Those memories are vivid in my mind and I was overjoyed when I came across this site.

Here's wishing you good luck, and hope that this site will continue to prosper and give me and other like minded people out there many hours of browsing pleasure.

Jayaram

New member Einimazz who commented here was going to be a bit naughty. So I deleted his posts and sent him on his way before any harm was done :)

My name is Kevin Barthelemy, and I was named after Kevin the Bold, which was still being published as a strip in newspapers when I was a kid in the sixties.  I haven't searched the site for it yet, but I'm hoping to find it here.  My mother believed the lies about comics being bad for you, so I was twelve by the time she allowed me to buy an issue of Classics Illustrated (Lord Jim).  I do have a small handful of comics from the fifties that my brother-in-law gave me out of his collection that he learned to read from.  I've never let a comic I owned leave me.  Yeah, I love comics, old and new.

* After a bit of research, it turns out that Kreigh Collins renewed copyright in 1974 for some or all of his work.  Oh well, I can still find a bit here and there.

Good story Kevin. You're not alone in having a parent (or parents) who disapproved of comics.  So take your time and have a good look through our collection and get reading.

Kevin the Bold was published in the MENOMONEE FALLS GAZETTE back in the '70s when I subscribed to it. I can't give a link on this site, but if you do a search on the internet you may find links to pages of the GAZETTE.

Despite being a knight from days of old, Kev the Bold is too young to be in the public domain.

When I think of Kevin the Bold, I'm reminded of a song we sang in the navy that went "In days of old, when knights were bold and women weren't particular--" And the rest is not for polite company.

Hey, I'm Karl. I currently live in Greater London although I spent a lot of time in France when I was younger. I didn't have much interest in comic books till I discovered these reprints of 50s war comics, after recently reading some of Junji Ito's work I have got very interested in horror (Both comics and manga) thank you for reading my post, I hope to enjoy my stay on this website.

Hello Karl. Welcome the CB+. I also hope you enjoy your time here.
You're quite lucky to be living nr London with access to some good comic shops and marts.  I'm wee bit jealous.  As narf says, we have a good selection of horror stuff for you to rake through.
