I'd consider calling this the gilded age of comics.  I've been asked from time to time if this is a good era to start collecting as an investment.  Generally, I answer "no".  However, I usually point out that if the buyer is interested in a great story and great art, then there has never been a better time to get into comics. 
And so I call this era the 'gilded' era.  While the books aren't any more valuable, they are lined (on the inside rather than the edge) with gold.

I would not call Final Crisis gold, but I get what your going for. 
Stories are getting bolder, and creators are pushing the boundaries of the medium. With that comes a lot of crap, and a lot of gold. Its a beautiful age, not about money.
