The Silver Age of comics began in the late 1950's with DC's Showcase #4 featuring the rebirth of the Flash by Carmine Infantino. This was so popular that it influenced DC to repackage a few more of it's Golden Age heroes and finally feature a group of their most popular heroes in a new "Team" comic, Justice League of America. This kicked the next phase of the super hero craze into high gear once again. This was just a few years before Marvel came on the scene and changed the comic book genre for good. Marvel was the first to credit the artists and writers in every issue and helped make household names of Stan "The Man" Lee, Jack "King" Kirby, "Sturdy" Steve Ditko, "Jazzy" John Romita Sr, "Dashing" Don Heck, John Buscema, George Tuska, Inkers... Dick Ayers, Chic Stone, Joe Sinnott and even letterers Artie Simeck and Sam Rosen. DC soon followed and brought us Gardner Fox, Carmine Infantino, Gil Kane, Mike Sekowsky, Joe Kubert and eventually Neal Adams. Ahhhh... what a great time this was for comics!!!
