Bryan Frazier

Bryan W. Frazier has been reading and collecting comic books for the past forty years! He has a love and fondness for the Vintage Comic Books, Comic Strips, Magazines, Books, Toys, TV Shows and Movies, and even radio shows  of the past (paying particular loving attention to the Pop Culture of the 70’s and 80’s! His personal “glory days”). He has two little poochies named Leyna and Layla, and an as yet unfinished novel  that he hope to turn into a series someday. His column is "Old School" and so is he!! He is Bryan W. Frazier -- Mr. Bronze Age!

"Six men...playing a deadly game of cat and mouse...with a machine that wants to kill them. "Yes, it is that famous (infamous?!) 1974 made-for-TV movie (back when that actually MEANT something) KILLDOZER!! I watched "Killdozer" last week for the very first time. I had heard about the film of course, but I had never had both the chance and inclination to watch it before. For the benefit of my readers, I will give you all a short synopsis of the movie. If you have NOT seen the film and maybe plan to do so, spoiler warnings abound  and are in full effect! Read more...
I was recently drawn into a thread on Facebook that asked if we thought that the Atom was/is a "B-Lister" character. My EXACT response to this--"I do NOT find the Atom, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Zatanna, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Elongated Man, Aquaman or the Martian Manhunter to be ANYTHING but A-Listers!"

More Bronze Age Blasts From The Past!

Monday, 24 April 2017 15:02
I am Mr. Bronze Age for a reason. That reason is -- I LOVE the Bronze Age of comics!! It is the era in which I grew up and they are the comics of my well spent youth! I still to this day get an elated feeling whenever I come across a book from the Bronze Age era! As I have mentioned several times before in my almost three years of writing this column, I have been trying to reorganize my collection (my collection consists of two storage buildings full of comics plus two rooms in my house that are overflowing with my comics, books, magazines and DVDs).

Mr. Bronze Age's Pre-Comic Shop Memories

Monday, 10 April 2017 17:08
My readers have heard me speak reverently several times in the past about the Rock Bottom Bookshop, which I frequented in my childhood. We comic book fans of a certain era, pre-comic shops, and WAY before Previews, you could never be sure that you would get the books that you wanted. That is why I loved going to the Rock Bottom! The Rock Bottom, an institution in our town nowadays, was founded and managed by Ms. Wilda (NOT Wilma) Hardin. Read more...
I have written twice before of the days in which a comics collector would have to go to several stores in order to get their favored books. I have thus far written about four such places, some better than others. But THIS time, I will be writing about the very BEST convenience stores in which I found my books!! Read more...

Adventures At The Local Comic Shop - Part 2

Wednesday, 15 March 2017 15:30
Last week, I told of a couple of convenience stores that I used to go to back in my childhood. I HAD an actual comic book store, complete with both new comics and vintage back issues in my town. But the owner did not stock EVERYTHING for the discerning collector. Back then in the 1970's and even into the early 1980's, a kid had to cover a great deal of ground in order to find ALL of the books that they collected each month. I never paid all that much attention to the names of the stores, so when I wanted to go to a particular store, I had to use descriptive nick names to tell my parents which store I needed to get to then.

I just finished re-reading my friend Rob's book "Hey Kids, Comics!!" (the book was named after a website of his)! The book is filled with essays by various comic book pros and fans alike. And a common theme in these essays, is that of how much of a struggle it could be to hunt down your favorite comics (back in the day, you had to cover some ground in order to get to ALL of your favorites). And , those essays served to remind me of how lucky I was as a kid growing up in the 1970's. Read more...
