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.
