When we think of superheroes and sidekicks, we think mainly of Batman and Robin, or in the case of many Marvel fans, Captain America and Bucky. But the Golden Age saw the rise of many costumed champions of justice, and many of them had kid wards too. In order, we have Cat Man and Kitten, Sandman and Sandy the Golden Boy, the Shield and Dusty the Boy Detective and finally, Mr. Scarlet and Pinky the Whiz Kid. Mock the names all you want folks, these comics sold just as big as Batman, Superman or any of the other big names that have stood the test of time. So the next time you see a collection book of some of these classic heroes, don’t knock it, read it. You might just find something you like.

How do I spend my time when I’m not out with friends being my usual nerdy self? I watch old movies and revel in the days of such stars as Robert Preston, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Catherine Hepburn and so many other luminaries of the silver screen.
