My First Comics!
So it all started when my dad told me not to go into the attic and root through his things, so I did. Finding Richie Rich, Kamandi, and Tor comics. Then my older brother handed me some Savage Dragon, Ninja Turtles, and Spawn books. After the exposure to these eye openers, I discovered the Comix Connection 2 for 99'ers. My hands riddled with red marker, I began to leave the store with Adventures of Superman, Spider-man, and Tick comics. I've remembered all of those comics for years now, because each comic was a step closer to the day I signed up for a subscription and an addiction. These are some of those that I remember.
This issue was one of the first that I found in my Dad's trash bags from the attic. Jack Kirby! Nuff' said!
I actually enjoyed reading these the most! Richie Rich and all the Harvey cast are so fun, so it was a major treat when the Harvey Classics reprints came out, speaking of which, they are still available here at Comix Connection!
Can't forget the first time I saw a Kubert comic!
This Turtles comic helped me realize there were more than just cave men and funny books out there, and then I met the Super-heroes!
This is the first of that breed I ever had, and the cover is stained into my brain. The stark red background is something I'll never forget.
One of my first 2 for 99'ers!
Last but not least the first time I picked up my sub and brought home uncanny X-men #369 in 1999.
I'd later pick up Ultimate Spider-man #1, discovering Bendis. A few years later I'd read Walking Dead #1, and the hits never stopped coming after that. I thought I'd write this post about the first comics I remembered having as a kid, because they are the reason I read today, a lot of it was the art on the covers' appeal.
So, what were some of the first comics you read?
