    My parents, some Asterix, Tintin and Lucky Luke of course. (can't escape those growing up in France)

    Super hero comics now it started thanks to a magazine who was called "Strange" in which you could find Marvel stories. (Spider-man, X-men, Iron Man and Alpha Flight mostly)

    I don't remember when exactly but pretty early, somewhere during primary school i would say.

    The first comic I ever received was from my mother when I was in first grade back in early '72 (a Gold Key Pink Panther). The following year, I got my first superhero/DC comics (Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen and Legion of Super-Heroes). By 1974, Marvel came into my life (no superhero issues, though - two reprints featuring western and sci-fi stories). In 1975, I got my first Batman and Spidey comics, while 1976 was the year I started actively buying them myself on a weekly basis.

    I started out a Superman fan due to the films and the Super Friends cartoon, but didn't know what comics were but Id pick whatever movie comic book tie-in Id spot at the drugstore (Star Wars, Indiana Jones).

    I didnt start consider it a hobby until I started collecting comics based on G.I.Joe and Transformers and from there I rediscovered Batman riding the Dark Knight hype.

    Watched a lot of Saturday Morning cartoons growing up. When I got to college, there was a gigantic Flea Market a couple of miles away. Once every few weeks, usually on the weekends as a break from studying, I would walk there from my Campus Dorm and look around. I found one stall that sold comic books, so I bought some and took them back to to my Dorm to read.

    I would say most people here probably were first introduced to superheroes via cartoons, Tami. I know I first saw them exactly 50 years ago - Batman, Superman, Spidey, The Fantastic Four, Aquaman, etc.

    Cartoons seem to be a main factor for most of you when it comes to comics.
    I remembered I used to watch x men cartoons when I was young and liked it.
