First.. second week of March!

What an atrocious timekeeper I am.

One week later than promised, I'm introducing the third theme week of 2012:

free glitter text and family website at

Tell us about your firsts. First comic? First comic that meant ______ to you? First favourite character? First favourite artist? First comic that made you realise you wanted to devote your life to ______? AND SO ON.

You decide.

Tag with theme: my first week!

Or if you feel like reading instead of scanning - and possibly for "firsts" of a different type - just read back through February's cute romance week! Upon which I missed commenting due to IRL cute romancing taking me far from a keyboard but which I have bookmarked for future cheer-ups to be sure.

Get scanning!

Dang, I've got to get my The Death of Gwen Stacy out and scan it. Hopefully my college has a scanner around here...

Although, technically, my 'first' was probably one of my dad's old dark age Superman books. But Superman had a mullet and there were cyborgs so generally I don't consider that the first comic book I ever read. For my own sanity.

Let's see, my first comic was probably Academy X or Grant Morrison's New X-men. Not sure if I have any of my trades around, but I'll take a look.

How does one make a theme week "offical"?

Any themes that just become spontaneous, like a meme?

My first was Sandman, but I don't have any scans. However, for those that haven't read it SHAME ON YOU! GET IT!! It's awesome. I'll look for some scans.

I'm sure my first comic was some kid-friendly Richie Rich or Casper book from before I can remember, but the first super-hero comic I can recall, and the one that made me fall in love with the genre, was All-Star Comics #64, with the Earth-2 Justice Society beautifully depicted by Wally Wood's art:

My first comic book was probably Speed Racer #13 from 1998. I can't remember how I came into procession of it and I had no idea what was going on; I remember something about Ninjas (and there's a spiraly background in one place, with a Ninja Woman talking to Speed Racer) but I loved the artwork, I loved the interactions that were displayed in the physical sense and I loved the cover, which always made me wonder, "Is Speed Racer going to fall on that fence?!". I read it into literal pieces; it was in such a shambles that I had to throw it out (which is a shame, really).

My dad was a huge comics fan, and bought plenty of Batman and 'Tec back when it used to be cheap. Given that, it wasn't too surprising that I'd pick superhero comics up from quite young.

However, due to the (in hindsight, a little careless) way that the comics would be left in a big box ready for reading, the first two to really leave a mark on me turned out to be:

Tim Sale's art creeped me out as a kid, but I've come to appreciate it.

My first Marvel (which were about the same time) were the A5-sized Conan the Barbarian series, which were essentially non-colored versions of these printed on even worse quality paper than usual:

I remember thinking that Elric (see the second cover) was a pretty cool guy who use a sword that absorb souls and doesn't afraid of anything.

But for the absolute, very first, comics I ever read? Look no further than Calvin and Hobbes. It's a fair bet to say that I would've turned out very different if I'd never come across its brand of humour.
