The golden age of comics begins at the end of 1930 , when many of the superheroes that have survived to this day (like Superman, Batman, and Captain America) made their first appearance and the industry grew enormously. The end of the golden age occurs around 1950, when sales fall and then,around 1956, the Silver Age begins: at this time, stories of superheroes are not the main attraction, but arise a large number of sub-genres: stories of romance, horror, fantasy and crime that make their own audience, before there is a second wave of superheroes like The Flash and Spiderman. While the most famous comics are not being under copyright, a good deal of material from this period is in the public domain and is available in Comic Book Plus .
