Welcome to the Golden Age of Comic Books!

This site is devoted to the Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast and Blog created by Bill Jourdain.  Over the years, Bill has created many memorable podcasts devoted to the unique and groundbreaking characters featured in the Golden Age of Comic books, generally from the late 1930’s through the mid-1950’s.  Although the podcast is not currently in production, the 60+ episodes are timeless in their discussion of the origins of many pop culture icons.  In addition to the podcast, Bill has written numerous blog posts and magazine articles that are also featured on this web site.   The podcasts can be accessed from the “Show Index” link above, and the blog can be accessed via the “GAC Posts” link. 

In addition to our archive of podcasts and blog posts, we currently have a very active Facebook page devoted to the Golden Age of Comic Books.  We currently provide frequent updates through the Facebook page, which features many classic and rare Golden Age comic book covers.  The last five Facebook posts are below, but be sure to visit the Facebook page to enjoy the hundreds of cover images we have uploaded over the years. 

Thanks for stopping by.  We hope you enjoy your journey back in time to the Golden Age of Comic Books!
