This panel was the first one I attended at MegaCon on Sunday, March 23, 2014, around 1:00 p.m. The panelists, Julian Chambliss, William Svitavsky and Thomas Donaldson, discuss the book they edited, AGES OF HEROES, ERAS OF MEN, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing, and also available at Amazon, Blackwell and Ingram.
The panelists, all comic book readers themselves, put together an anthology of essays by scholars in many fields, exploring the changing depictions of superheroes divided into three eras: Golden Age, Silver Age and Modern. In a discussion with the audience, they shared how the current culture of the time influenced the evolving superhero.
