I grew up watching the old live-action Superman and Batman series on TV - and later on the animated Marvel and DC cartoons, but I watched westerns and war programs and science fiction and mysteries and comedies and especially horror stuff - whenever I could get away with it, and to me superheroes were just a tiny part of comics as a whole, just like they were a tiny part of TV programming.
Then in the '70s it seemed like superheroes were the focus and all of the other stuff that I liked was the fringe, though sword and sorcery did take off in a big way back then. I was fine with being in fringes as long as I could still find the stuff I liked somewhere.
Yeah... I didn't really have much to add, you just gave me a glimpse down memory lane there for a second.
