    Hah! I think I was reading CAD before I read comics. I must have been in middle school when I started. I haven't gone to the site in a very long time, but apparently it is still running!

    All-Star Comics #68 was the single issue that hooked me. I was very young and more familiar with 'Super Friends' than the 'Justice League' proper, yet I was thrilled. An alternate universe; ageing heroes; Power Girl; Commissioner Wayne!; a team split down the middle!

    A few years later, COIE was explained as a necessary simplification of the DCU. Well, at 7 years of age, I coped just fine!

    Superman calling Clark Kent a liar? I had to know more. For the next few years, Cary Bates was my favourite writer and Curt Swan my favourite artist.

    Both Bates and Swan are MASSIVELY underrated by modern readers in my opinion. Bates' first couple of years on CAPTAIN ATOM were amazing.

    My firsts were a pair of coverless Joe Kubert comics, Tarzan 208 and Our Army at War 195. (My mother threw them out overnight, but I was still hooked.

    It still is, and I was surprised to read the latest comics, which are a fairly standard but surprisingly well-done sci-fi action story. You can see it here; http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20140416

    So, I came to comics quite late—I was certainly older than most here—and recently. Like many adult converts (and many ladies, I'd come to discover), I first discovered the graphic medium through Gaiman's Sandman collected editions. I was 18 or so. The first time I ever walked into a comics store also came at the instigation of a novelist. Two years ago I bought China Miéville's Dial H #1 from DC's second wave of New 52 titles. Though it's already been cancelled after its unconventional and generally unrecognized, if exceptional and truly unique, run, it launched me as a fan of the medium.

    My dad was and is still into Comics.. he had a bunch of these in the attic and he actually let me draw and color in them.. I don't think they were ever extremely valuable but they were extremely fun.

    First comic I ever bought and read. I got it for 1 dollar and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    After many years this panel still remains to be single favorite in all of the X-men universe.

    Spider-Boy #1. I saw it at a 7-11 when I was in 4th grade. Hey, I was a 90s kid! I loved those pouches though. I wonder if I still have it somewhere.

    The earliest comics I remember owning were Australian reprints of Marvel titles. My favourites were the Avengers


    My love of DC's Golden Age characters came from Super Adventure Comics #61. This reprinted a few stories, but the one that really stood out for me was "The Unknown Soldier of Victory", the JLA/JSA/Seven Soldiers team-up from JLA 100. I loved the JSA and couldn't get enough of those JLA/JSA crossovers.



    But the comic that made me a lifelong fan and stopped me from quitting when I was about 8 years old was New Gods. I found 10 of the 11 Kirby issues for $1 a piece at my LCS and was completely blown away.
