    Sorry to see this end. How about showing the 1920’s?

    Obviously, there is enough vintage comics material to supply this feature until the end of time. The only reason that I can imagine for ending it is that it can’t be operated and make a profit. This is not despicable venality at work; it is simple survival economics. But wouldn’t it be nice if “Origins” could be endowed by some benefactor, or taken over by an institution — The Billy Ireland Library, or the Smithsonian.

    I am sad to see this feature go. But very grateful for it having existed.

    Gotta say, as someone who has read comics all his life, this has been a fascinating bit of history! Ah well, it’s just lines on paper, folks …

    I agree with everyone above! I have enjoyed every page
    of every story. I never knew such artistry existed. Some
    where a little hard to read, but it was great seeing them.
    I hope someone continues bringing us these treasures!!

    I agree wholeheartedly. This is a national treasure that should be continued by the National Endowment for the Arts.
    Thank you all so much for returning the comics of my childhood.

    Two and a half years, really? Time DOES fly when we’re having fun, I guess. It’s been fascinating, seriously.

    I am surprised at the number of readers who apparently had never seen, or even heard of, the great old comics and the huge Sunday pages. I have been seeking them out, how ever I could find them, since the late 1950s, starting when I was about nine years old. It never occurred to me that other comics fans had been living in a world where, for them, comics started with superheroes. To me (for some reason) the old ones are REAL comics, and most of the rest are some diminished and stunted offshoot. I have an irrational love for The Funnies. Thank goodness for all the reprint books lately. I wish this feature would not stop!
