The Platinum Age applies to all comics that came out before the 1st appearance of Superman in 1938 and is a very specialized area of comics collecting. The number of people collecting these comics is very small and less is known about them than comics from the Golden Age forward, but they undeniably laid the foundation that modern comics were built upon. Popular character from the pre-super-hero days include R.F. Outcault's The Yellow Kid, George McManus' Bringing Up Father (with Jiggs & Maggie), and Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse.
