I believe the first comic I read was Vengeance of Bane, which was his origin story. And I bought this as a two-pack and came with the issue where Bane first breaks Killer Crocs arm before the Knightfall storyline. That got me into comics, especially Batman ones. I only collect Batman and Superman comics.

Like I remember :oldyella: But for sure it was something Spiderman related.

I can't even remember. I think it was Transformers, that one where the Dinobots go cray cray and start destroying stuff, then they go into a coma and have to fight battles in their dreams to survive

I probably started reading comics with Mickey Mouse . Their was one story in which Mickey dreams he is a musketeer and defeats Black Pete and his henchman in a number of duels that I must have read about a dozen times .

The first superhero comic I`ve read was a Batman trade about the events right after Jokers first arrest which was really good . I think this story arc was from Batman confidential ...

I believe the first comic I ever read was Batman vs Predator. That was quite awhile ago though.

Seeing this topic made me curious, so I went back and pulled out some of my old comics from when I was little. Star Wars: Attack of The Clones and Jango Fett: Open Seasons (both by Dark Horse) got me into comics when I was little. I think the first Batman I ever read was Batman #533. It was in with all the others, so I assume it was probably my first.
After playing Arkham Asylum I got re-interested though, and my first one was A Serious House on Serious Earth, and it's been my favorite ever since.

Good necro RR1999

First CB:
The Amazing Spider-Man #1
Image
The local newspaper was having a promo and was releasing ASM #1 through I think #10 or so inside their newspaper. Coming off of Raimi's Spider-Man movie this was my jam. I loved Spider-Man. Naturally I collected all of these. But it wasn't until much later when I read this graphic novel when I really started getting into comics hardcore.

First GN:
Batman: The Wideneing Gyre

A friend let me borrow it around the time Arkham Asylum came out and from then I just went on a spree of reading all of Batman's must reads. And then moved onto othere heroes.

I can't remember any single issues I read when I was young, bar a few TMNT and Spiderman kids magazines, but the first graphic novel I read was Serious House on a Serious Earth.
