I've read some of the early Kane/Finger stories, but the Silver Age era after the publishing of "Seduction of the Innocent" and the implementation of the Comics Code isn't all that interesting to me. It was written for children, after all.

I think the Golden Age stuff has a historical relevance that goes beyond that.

Early 60s Marvel (the first issues of Fantastic Four, for instance) is about as close to the Silver Age as I like to get.
