First Comic book Ever Read ?

Postby Maultest » Jun 5th, 2013, 8:27 pm

Title Says it all, What was the First Comic Book/ Graphic Novel you ever read ? Was A good exposer to comics ? Did it make you seek out other characters ? Or did it forever make you leave the comic book world ? ( Not possible I'm sure, If it was batman one ) My first was None other than The Death of Superman, Say it at the school book fair and feel in love with it. Though I have to thank Justice League series for getting me into it, And before I knew batman and superman where my favorites, and before I knew all the over load of batman content made me like him more and superman went to go die in a gutter in metropolis jealous of him. Anyways that's the first one I ever Read what was yours ?

Not this issue exactly (because I can't exactly remember), but I carried a copy of a M.A.S.K. Comic in my back pocket for ages (probably just a week or so).

Well, when I was little I can remember that I read stuff like M.A.S.K. and The Real Ghostbusters... I'm too old to remember my very first comic book! :adam:

But, the very first comic book I read as an adult (and part of the reason why I am on this forum) was Batman: Year One! After playing Arkham Asylum and Arkham City I decided to check out some comic books, and my first choice was Year One. Simply because it seemed like the perfect starting point, and sure enough it got me hooked!

The Pedigree DC Superheroes Annual 2001. :lol:

I was 4, and it was basically a continuation of TNBA and STAS.

It would have probably been The Dark Knight Returns. I had dabbled in things like "The Simpsons Comic" and "The Beano" but the first "real" comic I ever read was TDKR and at the time I knew nothing about Batman etc. At that point everything I knew about superheroes was Marvel, with most of my information coming from repeats of old 90's X-Men and Spider-Man cartoons and their respective movies.

This was the shit, and Euan could probably vouch for me on that one.


My first "proper" comic ever though was Watchmen. Christ, what a way to start. Talk about throwing someone in the deep end.

I don't remember the title exactly but it was a Simpsons one which my parents bought me at the airport to keep me entertained when I was little.

It was either a random Batman comic book when I was about 5 or 6 (started getting them around that time 'cause I was obsessed with Burtons movies and BTAS) or Footrot Flats.

Spoiler: show


Footrot Flats was awesome!


Not really sure which I read first though.
