    Not technically a first issue and not even a full-length comic, but Spider-Man’s first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 is, well, amazingly perfect!

    Reading many of the choices in this thread, maybe the title of the board ("Comics Should Be Good") isn't properly recognized?

    What others said: TMNT 1 and Amazing Fantasy 15. Sandman 1 and maybe Bone 1.

    If you’re not talking about #1’s, my vote is for Cap #444, and Brubaker’s Captain America volume which began ‘Winter Soldier’.

    OMG! If it does count, then it should be at the top of the list (IMHO):

    As much as I love TMNT #1, does anyone else think that a self-contained story that straightforward could ever be published today? Especially for a first issue? I'm not usually one to complain about multi-issue arcs, too much, but there's something about one-and-dones that I miss dearly.
    Keep in mind that you have about as much chance of changing my mind as I do of changing yours.

    I don't know. But I appreciate a good cliffhanger. A done and one issue must be really really good to get me to buy the next issue. A mediocre issue with a good cliffhanger has a better chance to be bought.

    I'm pretty sure the "photographer" credit is a tribute to Gene Colan, Bill Everett and Wally Wood.
