I realize that comic companies always like to look forward and latch on to the latest hot fads and styles, but there is definitely something to be said for looking to the past as well. I love superheroes and I love period pieces, so superhero comics set in the past have always had an appeal to me. I miss comics like All-Star Squadron or The Invaders, that were set during WWII. It's great to see the heroes operating in the time frame that they were actually created in, and it takes me back to reading those classic Golden Age reprints of their original adventures. I can only imagine what it must have been like for a kid to read those wartime comics fresh off of the stands.
