...I will turn 45 in two months time and consider myself one of more senior members of Comic Vine. I also find I'm usually 20 years older than most of the people who visit my comic book shop when I'm there. However I am sure there are others who are over 40, perhaps over 50, dare I say it maybe even 60+ bloggers. So, out of interest if you are over 40 and still read comic books, shout!! I wanna know how many greying, balding, ageing, middle age spreading comic book geeks there are in our community! (btw, I am only slightly balding & greying with no middle age spread!)

@bezza: I'm sorry for derailing your thread like this, but I had no idea you owned a comic shop! Where's it located?

Soon to be 46. Recently posted this blog about one advantage of being a comics geezer. Let me know if you can relate.

Well....I'm 36. Lol about the age gap w/ younger users.....I get shocked often when I find out the ages of some of my fellow debaters on the battles forum.

I'm 19 but my Dad's 40 and he plays Battlefield 4 with me on PSN, so he's pretty rad.

Kudos to all you older folk who deal with us youngin's on a regular basis and imparting words of wise wisdom on us :P

I just turned 50. For me... real life began at 40. being a kid at heart rocks. It has a downside, but has a much, much bigger upside. Keep reading comics folks..."nuff said!"
