I'm sure someone has made this thread before but couldn't find it with the search tool. If there is and a mod wants to merge it with an existing one that would be fine.
I remember decades or so ago when I was about six after a tonsillectomy I was given a copy of Heathcliff as kind of a consolation. After that I wanted to read about Batman and Spider-Man so I picked up some issues of Detective Comics and Marvel Tales featuring Spider-Man and it pretty much snowballed from there.
Does anyone else share a similar experience? I'm curious to know if people can remember the first comicbook they read. If it effected them a great deal or was a defining moment in their life, or was it just a fun nostalgic memory. Do you remeber the exact issue or what the comic was about?
