Distraction of the Morning: What Comics Came Out the Month You Were Born?

A Lesson in Humility


Mike Voilesexhaustive indexing of published Marvel, DC, Fawcett, Quality, Charlton, and Wildstorm comics from 1935 to the present must be a boon for collectors and retailers alike.

But for the rest of us mortals it’s just an exercise in looking up our own birth months and checking out the results. Hey, older comic fans. I’m as old as Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. Problem?

(Thanks, Christy!)

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
