    My dad surpised me with this when I was kid. Funny thing is I have ZERO memory about what the comic was about but was fascinated with the art work. I remember bringing it to school and showing my friends and it eventually got destroyed bc of all the mishandling lol.

    It really tripped me out when the Movie/trailer was announced as I didn't remember a Raccoon or Tree Character in the comics.

    I still remember, my mother let me and my brother pick one thing in the toystore and I spent what felt like all afternoon combing the store and found something that didn’t look like too ongoing...

    My brother meanwhile picked up some silly putty.

    Not long after, issue three to be exact, I found Spider-Man. It wasn’t just cameos that got me. I was part of the problem and fell for those gimmick covers.

    And then Secret Wars II started while Shockwave continued the series...

    Got this one new. My grandmother had a fit that a funny book was so expensive, but my mother bought it for me anyway. I learned to read because of comics.

    Going into the comic shop in the mid-90s picking up this gem of a series. I didn’t own a whole lot of issues and it wasn’t until years later that I got the graphics novels and read it in full, but it gave me a lifelong love of the Spider-Man of the future. When Peter David got brought on to revive the character several years ago after he returned in the pages of Superior Spider-Man, I devoured that series.

    I actually still have the first comics I ever owned. Both were given to me at the same time.

    The first comic I asked my parents to buy me. We had a comic shop in a college town near us and I spent hours looking for the one comic my parents said I could have. I wanted to make sure it would be a story I could read over and over.

    The first comic that I bought with the intentions of buying the entire series. As soon as I saw it in the comic section of our local Kroger grocery store, I was hooked.

    Mine was a UK transformers comic, i think looking back now it was part of Space Pirates, it had arcee on the cover and ended up with her getting damaged and at the end of the chapter lying with a smoking hole in her torso.

    Cursed Earth is great. And the stories that immediately followed ushered in what I consider to be the greatest era of Dredd. Pat Mills faded from Dredd to go do the things he is most known for like Nemesis, while Wagner & Grant really solidified the world and tone of Judge Dredd, forming what is maybe the greatest writing partnership in the entire history of comic books (until they eventually fell out over the conclusion to the Dredd in Oz storyline).

    If Michael Golden could have drawn the interiors, Transformers would be remembered as a much better comic by comic fans in general, and not just us.

    It's more funny as they use the toy face for bumblebee and not the cartoon face that issue! I think he gets the cartoon face next issue.

    Marvel Masterworks Spider-Man Vol. 1, bought at a comic shop in Peoria called Acne Comics.

    I still have it, though it is missing about 60% of the original cover.

    Pretty sure my first ever comic book was an issue of Turok, and I've been hooked ever since.

    Before I started the Transformers UK comic, at the age of about 8 I pestered my parents into buying me a comic at some secondhand bookshop or other.

    It was an Iron Man comic. Tony Stark was in his workshop, being hunted by a robotic duplicate of himself. It was wearing his current armour, and he ended up getting into the original “golden avenger” armour in an effort to even the odds.

    I recall the duplicate taunting him by saying he doesn’t stand a chance in something so outmoded, and Tony responding by saying “What’s important is who’s inside” while bringing something heavy down on the duplicate’s head.

    I remember very little else about it and I’ve never been able to track down the story again.
