Remember back when comics didn't have sound? I know that ultimately its introduction really helped the artform grow, but sometimes it feels like sound came in too early, before the medium was really mature enough to form an identity without it. But what do y'all think? Do you yearn for the bygone years of "reading" comics? Much like the debate over black and white versus colour comics, I know the difference is something that's heavily rooted in fundamental ideas about aesthetics, probably formed in one's formative years. Older members are probably more attached to the days before sound existed, but I know even a few children who would give their left Lego just to see what such a fondly remembered time was like.
But yeah, what do y'all think about the long lost age of silent comics? Is there something that they lose from not having intertitles or interthoughtbubbles? What's your favourite silent comic? What are the best and worst innovations heralded by the end of the silent era? Is silence truly golden?

"To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world...."
I didn't really realize that the comic era had comics that read themselves, which ultimately sounds kinda dumb since it's better to let a reader make the world for themselves for voices n all.
Unless the joke hath flown over my head.
But really I just started getting into comics though I've been on this site so long, double hek
Here we are, you are there and I am here, and if I were to be there and you to be here I promise you we could have a most awkward conversation together.
