Within the comic book community, there are generally accepted categories that comic books are organized by based on the year they were published, known as comic book ages.
The Bronze Age is generally understood as comic books published between the years of 1970 and 1985.
In the grand scheme of things, the Bronze Age falls somewhat in the middle of chronology:
Golden Age (1938 – 1956)
Silver Age (1956 – 1970)
Bronze Age (1970 – 1985)
Modern Age (1985 – Present)
Since Bronze Age comic books are over 30 years old, there are only a few that are in good condition and are investment-grade. This makes well-kept Bronze Age comics very valuable, especially if they are rare to begin with, making them very lucrative if you ever wanted to sell them for cash.
The Bronze Age is generally identified by a shift to generally darker plot lines addressing real-life issues such as drug use, poverty and damage to the environment. The Bronze Age transitioned into the Modern Age in the mid-1980s as comic books began to get more commercialized, more intense plot twists became the norm as well as the rise of what some would call “anti-heros” such Elektra or the X-Men.
