Super-Blog Team-Up is an occasional cross-blogging project where several Silver and Bronze Age comic bloggers all look at a similar topic on the same day. Founding members of Super-Blog Team-Up include Silver Age Sensations, Flodo’s Page, Superhero Satellite, Chasing Amazing, Fantastiverse, and of course Longbox Graveyard.
Super-Blog Team-Up debuted in November of 2013 with “The Day They Walked Away,” looking at the common comic book trope of superheroes hanging up their mask!
Six different heroes went under the microscope for this inaugural Super-Blog Team-Up:
#1 Silver Age Senstations: The Thing
#2 LongBox Graveyard: Captain America
#3 Flodo’s Page: Green Lantern
#4 SuperHero Satellite: Superman
#5 Chasing Amazing: Spider-Man
#6 Fantastiverse: Hank Pym (re-solicit!)
Super-Blog Team-Up returned in February of 2014, with an expanded roster and a spiffy new banner!
This time around, our subject was “Ret-Cons” — the good, the bad, and the ugly!

I would love to participate in this. My blog is new, but I’ve been reading comic books for almost 30 years.

Hunt up Charlton Hero over at Superhero Satellite — he’s emerged as the benevolent dictator of the Super-Blog Team-Up. Your blog looks nice and I expect you’d fit right in (provided you think yourself a good fit for a functional Anarchy!)
