Welcome back, everyone! Just a quick reminder of what our goal for each and every Saturday is: Stirring the pot is the act of causing trouble for the sake of your own amusement. So we here at Comic Booked would like to formally invite you to discuss, debate, and start some shit talkin’ about the characters, the creators, and the storylines given to us from the industry we all know and love, hate, and love to hate. So let’s quit wasting time and start the mud (or web) slinging!
This Saturday’s question: What was your first comic?
So go forth and debate! But be sure to back up your responses. Don’t be scared. And don’t give up. After all, no one likes a quitter. And you’re not a quitter, are you?
The first one I really remember, because I know that I read a bunch of House of Mystery and stuff from DC, was X-Men #181. A kid in my 5th grade class sold it to me for $0.75 because he said it was rare. That sparked my love for comics, but we lived in the middle of nowhere on a farm in Minnesota and had very little money to buy comics. My mom would go to town once in a while and she would buy me one when she could. I remember Aquaman, Who's Who in the DC Universe, and a ton of other books over the years, but that will always be one of my favorite stories when the X-Men come back from the first Secret Wars.
I still own my very first comic. Or, more accurately, miniseries. Robin II: The Joker's Wild. Been a Batman (and Chuck Dixon) fan ever since!
You and have so totally talked about this before! > https://www.comicbooked.com/amazing-spider-man-mem…
X-men vol 2, #3. A beautiful Jim Lee X-Men vs X-Men cover. I didn't know who half the people were since all I had seen was the cartoon up to that point, but I was hooked nonetheless.
When I was a kid I had various comics, mostly Harvey stuff like Hot Stuff, but the first comic I ever bought and can say I owned would be Ghost Rider, Vol. 2, No. 1. The Dan Ketch series.
I used to go to my LCS to buy horror movie magazines like Fangoria and GoreZone and one day I decided to look at those comic book things. I say the flaming skull, the motorcycle with the flaming tires and I picked it up. I had no clue what it would eventually lead to.
But I love it!
Very first comic was the old run of sandman mystery theatre given to me by a friend. Kickstarted my love of golden age heroes/the JSA
It's just too good of a question not to broaden!
Also excellent. Jim Lee and Chris Claremont producing comic book magic. Too bad it didn't last longer!
That Howard Mackie Ghost Rider series was (and still is) pretty underrated stuff. I still have almost all of his run somewhere in my collection.
Oh, man. I forgot about that series! It was awesome!
It was the Age of apocalypse issues of Factor X for me. So bleak and dark and awesome.
Loved that series. Havok has always been one of my favorite X-Men, so it was cool to see him and Scott as bad guys.
