The Ages of Comics is a his­to­ri­o­graph­i­cal sys­tem that comics stud­ies has inher­ited from the fan schol­ar­ship tra­di­tion. While it is fre­quently crit­i­cized, it is almost inevitably recu­per­ated with a new set of Ages or an adjusted canon. How­ever, these attempts to fix the only address prob­lems of con­tent, while the model’s true weak­ness is the total­iz­ing and essen­tial­iz­ing con­cept of an “Age.” This essay out­lines a cri­tique of the Age sys­tem on this basis and argues for its obso­les­cence as a his­to­ri­o­graph­i­cal prob­lem­atic. In its place, an alter­na­tive prob­lem­atic is pro­posed: the geneal­ogy of comics scenes.
