Thank you everyone who participated and helped to make this a successful contest!
Here's the Winning EntryMy comic of choice is New Teen Titans Vol. 1 #1. The reason why I picked this comic out of the many other comics in my collection is that this one has a rich history. It was 2006, I was in the 10th grade and my new friend (Will) invited me to go to WonderCon in San Francisco with him (which wasn't far from San Rafael). It was also my first time to go to an actual comic book convention (and than it became an annual event/ritual for me and my friends). A few hours later into the convention I stumble to one exhibitor booth and was looking around in a box that was selling comics for $6. After flipping through like maybe 4 or 5 comics later, I stumbled upon something I never thought to achieve in a life-time: THE NEW TEEN TITANS VOL. 1 #1. When I knew what the item was, I immediately said, "Sold! For $6!". Normally, that comic would be like $100 or more, but on my first comic book convention trip, I was one lucky SOB. Thanks to that comic, my first comic book convention trip will always be treasured in my memories.
Here are some of the comments that were provided with the votes:
AMP - Seeker of Lost Knowledge
- For the pure reason of love for the source material. I love the Enthusiasm this fella exudes! It makes me nostalgic for the love i used to have :)
- For his sheer slavish Teen Titans Fandom
- I nearly cried reading this one... it speaks for itself. Sentiment and not selfishness being the reasons behind the choice of this fella. Lovely little story!
- Sad story, but it's nice that everytime he looks at the print he thinks of his old mate. That really pulled my heartstrings
- Better late than never i always say. Gen X is fantastically great and i love the honesty behind this one. I like the fact he doesn't care how much the comic is worth... he just loves it for what it is and what it means to him!
- He has fine choice, he likes JLA Earth 2 which is a top story
