I just bought my first comic because I saw it at the convenience store for like $3. I had to decide between Action Comics, Detective Comics, and Teen Titans. I bought Teen Titans #7. What was the first comic you owned?

Dont recall the number, but it was an issue of the Punisher guest starring Spider-Man. Bought at a grocery store back in the mid to late 80's.

Uncanny X-Men #245. Cover and interior by Rob Liefled with Wolverine sporting some serious Youngblood's disease on the cover. Got it from a fourth grader when I was a second grader. I'm 31 now, and still read comics. I lost that comic somewhere between five moves, but recently re-bought it at this years Megacon, just as a nostalgia for what got me started.

I've read comics as long as a I can remember. My dad is a comic fan, so I started off quite young reading his. I learned basic reading skills from comic books. So I can't really recall my first actual comic. But I can remember the first comic that was a favorite of mine:

DC Comics Presents Annual #3 (1984)

No Caption Provided

In it the mainstream Superman, the Golden-Age Superman from Earth-2, and Captain Marvel (Shazam!) team-up to fight Dr. Sivana who has stolen the power of Shazam! for himself using one his inventions.

As a kid, Captain Marvel and Superman were like my first favorite super-heroes, because in my kid mind I naively thought the most powerful super-hero = the best super-hero. So in my mind, this was the the ultimate team-up. I ate it up.

And no, I didn't read it brand-new off the racks. I would have been a 1-year old if that were the case. This issue was in my dad's collection.

My house has had comics in it since before I was born... but me owning personally would probably have to be The Walking Dead #1.
