    Default First Marvel Issue

    What's everyone's first Marvel comic? That one issue that made you step up and start collecting/reading?

    Mine was Generation X #11(from the 90's series). I just loved this book until a storyline in the late thirties or early forties that just made me put it down. I can't even remember much of the details other than being turned off by a combination of week story and art for a couple months running. But this one, this one drew me in. I still love Chamber.

    Marvel Zombies 4 #3.

    I had only read a few X-men issues at the library before, but that was my first comic. Saw the preview for it and had to have it despite knowing very little about the characters.

    For a Marvel comic in general it was Star Wars issue 17. For a comic set in the actual Marvel U it was Uncanny X-Men issue 166.

    Had no idea what was going on, took a few issues and editor notes to help clear things up.

    It was an anthology:
    Uncanny X-Men #145
    Uncanny X-Men #146
    Marvel Teap Up #90
    Marvel Two-In-One #60

    I was a bit disapponted, because I thought it was going to be a Fantastic Four story. (I knew them from that terrible Hanna Barbera cartoon)
    Also Spider-Man was getting his ass kicked by Killer Shrike.

    I got a bunch of Power Pack, Dazzler, Beauty and the Beast, Dakota North and Cloak & Dagger comics at about the same time, so I'm not 100% sure which was my first Marvel. Most of them were from polybagged 3-packs from drugstores, so they were back issues.

    I'm thinking this one...

    And then I let my friend borrow it and he tore the cover. Never again.

    Although I read many comics before then, I distinctly remember at the end of high school (12 years ago) walking into a comic shop and coming away with, among others, Punisher War Journal issues 5 and 6. I sat down in the library with a friend who was studying, and while reading them I thought, "y'know, I could do this every week."

    Yeah, that was actually the first issue of X-Men I had. Thrown to the wolves.

    Two issues. There was a used book store that had a spinner rack. Bundled together in a bag were

    Mavel Team-Up #12
    http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Marvel_Team-Up_Vol_1_12
    and
    Marvel Team-Up #16
    http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Marvel_Team-Up_Vol_1_16

    I was around 6 at that point and Spidey, Jack Russell (Werewolf by Night) and Mar-Vell were my favs for years after that (and I'd love to see the Basilisk come back again too!).

    A second, possibly third hand copy of a British re-print of 70's Spidey stories. Bought it from the Barras around '88 but the comic was older than that ('76-ish?).

    It was printed in traditional magazine size and all in black and white. I figure the colours must have messed up in the re-sizing. I later spent months re-colouring the whole thing with pencils.

    The first story was a Spidey/ Morbius story featuring Glory Grant. The middle was a Thor story (?) by Simonson and the last - the big heavy hitter - was Amazing Spidey #122.

    Blew my tiny little mind.

    The only problem was we got it in a trade with a friend in the neighborhood and it was hard to find issue #40 on the newstands. Eventually we got one.

    So that's why there's no picture of a cover?

    Hmm it was either an issue of Micronaughts, Rom or the Pirate Kitty Xmen story.
