Comic book dealers and fans have a hard time pinpointing the exact beginning of any of the ages, the bronze age being no different. However, one theme stands out near the beginning is the risk Marvel and DC took to publish Amazing Spider-Man 96-98 and Green Lantern starting with #76. Those issues dealt with social issues as never before, with a focus on drugs.

However, the Bronze Age is known for the increase in new titles and genres attempted by the major publishers DC and Marvel. Number 1 issues abound in Sword and Sorcery (Conan, Warlord), Horror (Swamp Thing, Witching Hour), Fantasy and Science Fiction (Star Wars, New Gods) and more.

Titles from this period should be readily available online and at comic book conventions. Unless you’re looking for a key issue or number one of a title, most comic prices are affordable. Even with a limited budget, you can still acquire many comics in Very Fine to Near Mint condition. The keys, such as Batman 232 can be found quickly, but some collectors will need to settle for lower grades due to high prices.
