Despite reading and collecting comic books since 1992, I still think of myself as a relative newbie to the hobby. After all, I know folks from my old comic shop who became fans in the Silver Age — they’re the veterans. (Plus, were the 90s really THAT long ago? Asking for a graying, thirtysomething friend.)
