    It was either Uncanny #281 or X-Men #1, I think I got them at the same time.

    I first saw them in a Secret Wars issue. But official MY first X-Men comic was UXM 300. Although I believe at the time there was a book kind of like x-men 92 which was an adaptation of the animated series called x-men adventures. I think. And I got that comic the same day too and may have read it first. My first real introduction to the X-Men though came in Cartoon form in Pride of the X-Men when it originally aired on a Sunday morning in 1989.

    I picked it up at a newsagency at a shopping centre I was at with my Mum in Tasmania. I had no idea what was going on at the time but I was hooked by all the colorful weirdness! At that point I knew the cartoon existed and I saw ads for X-Men books in other comics I read but I didn't know much outside of that. Been collecting them ever since. Went back and got all the issues that came out before it too, in trades for the most part, but I had to find a lot of floppies that weren't collected in trade, took a good while but I did it. Honestly, it is probably a good thing I moved to the U.S 'cause it would've been much more difficult to find all those issues if I stayed in Australia at that time I think.

    I was buying mine from a sex shop in Manc, my mother would have had conniptions if she’d know what sort of place they were coming from. The front of the shop was comics, the back through the curtain was the seedy bit. But it did mean I got a well rounded education in comics, I was buying a lot of indi stuff like Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers and Bizarre Sex (mostly for Omaha the Cat Dancer, which was, and still remains, sublime).

    I don’t think there was a time when I wasn’t into comics, perhaps because I’m an artist.
    I graduated from UK humour and girls comics, such as Sparky, Mandy, Misty and Beezer to Marvel UK, Century 21 and 2000A.D to US and Indi comics.

    I wish I knew lol. I used to steal my older brother's comics before I could even read. A couple of the earliest that I can remember would be Uncanny 268 or Alpha Flight 17 though

    Uncanny X-Men annual 5.
    No matter how powerful a character is, if someone has to hold their snowflake hand, and remind them how very special they are before they stop whining long enough to save the day; they're not truly a badass.

    It was during Morrison's run. I think it was New X-men 137? It was definitely between 134 and 137.

    I believe it was Uncanny X-Men #133 but I could be mistaken. When I was a kid I had a box or 2 of my dad’s old comics so I might’ve read a different one first but that one sticks out.

    Cheers from Kiruna, Sweden!

    Probably X-Men Unlimited #1 and Uncanny #201, sometime in '93, for me.
    Yes, it was in Norway! Hello from Norway

    These two. I picked them both up at the same time from a Waldenbooks (or B. Dalton?) in the mall, strictly because I liked the covers, and they made absolutely no sense to 8 yr old me. I finally found a LCS in my area by the time of the big relaunch, and added Uncanny #281 and X-Men #1 to to my pull list. They made... a little more sense?
