I'm 42, and I started reading Marvel Comics (Silver Age) in 1978 (in Italian edition), and in 1987 (in English).

Hey, Yoc!

        It seems to me that the average age of responding readers is now a bit younger than when the poll began.  Would I be right in this observation ?  Do you still have access to earlier pole result to compare ?

Sorry Deni,
the poll is real time only.  I can't see any older results.

That is really more than we can hope for - the youth of today discovering the golden age.

18 is younger than when I STARTED buying comics! Sigh, that was so 46 years ago. Welcome. You're bound to learn about these cool comics quicker than I did.

I was buying comics, or having comics bought for me, when I was 5 or 6.  And when old enough to be given pocket money, I would buy a comic on the way back from the Saturday morning pictures.  These would have been British titles as American comics weren't distributed until 1959.  The comic habit has stayed with me, something which didn't happen with many friends and acquaintances, who just let them go.  It's heartening to find young fans on here.  There is so much to read and learn and despite the few new titles I buy regularly, they don't have the same feel, smell, look and potential for enjoyment as old British and American comics.  But then, I'm biased.

I hope it’s not new Youngblood™.   :)
Besides, I do not find it so strange. Even recently I have made acquaintance with a canadian girl which was then 17 (now she's 19) to which I sent a few italian disney stories from the 1950s (the few translated into English) and she not only loved them, but she also made very thoughtful cricitism, comparing them to Osamu Tezuka's Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy) which is her favorite character (she bought and watched all the 1963 series).
Not strictly golden age comic books, but nonetheless "golden to atomic age" in period, by northamerican standards. ;)

 I was actually making a musical pun and referencing an old Coasters song, "Youngblood," which Leon Russell recorded toward the end of the case of Jim Beam. I know about that series, but I gave it a miss.
