Fantastic Four
Male
Born: 1963
We had the first marvel super heroes cartoons back in the late 60s with Spiderman, Capt. America, Ironman, Thor and Hulk.
I remember Marvel super hero stickers from the late 60's on our red wagon.
The earliest comics I recall reading were FF #100, the Spiderman issue titled: "Spiderman No More!" and the team up book with stories of Namor vs the WW2 version of the Human Torch and Toro. I took scissors to those books to make my own action figures!(Oh well).




At the end of the 70s after Star Wars and Star Trek hit theaters, I went to see The guy who played Scotty at the Philadelphia Sci Fi and comic book convention and was introduced to the comic book collectors. 1979, I think it was.

Male
Born: 1984

Favorite of all time is Transmetropolitan 1997-2002. It's dirty and futuristic and hilarious. Still available in trade volumes.

Preacher
Sandman
Batman - No Man's Land arc was particularly good

I love Sandman. I love all Neil Gaiman. Have you read any of his novels?

I've read American Gods and Stardust. Very good stuff.

I found a box of comics from the 80s, with a bunch of Grimjack comics which used to be my favorite as a kid. I'm so happy!

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.
-Terry Pratchett

I used to love "Mad" magazine when I was a kid.

Nope, no longer read comics.

Although I watch Family Guy and King of the Hill

1) What comicbook was your favorite when you were kid and why?
2) And dare I ask if you are female or male?
3) Do you still read comics?
1) Conan the Barbarian, then King Conan, then ROM, then The Amazing Spiderman, then The Uncanny X-Men, then...  oh hell, etc... etc...  etc...
2) Male
3) No

Though I must admit, I do miss reading comics.  They were a great joy when I was growing up and I almost decided to become a comic book artist.  I even had an art scholarship which paid my college tuition while I was still going.  But my college art professor hated comic books, and I stopped going to my art class because he was such a major pr**k.  Then I found a job and I realized that actually having money was a good thing.  Which led to less attendance, and eventually not going any more at all.  Job to job, to business, to job.

Wish I had stayed in college.  Oh well.

Maybe I should write a comic book now...

*ponders the possibilities*

Rom Space Knight!
Steve Ditko drew me into that and I got wrapped up in the story. Regardless of the toy line I liked the idea behind it and it was the first book I
"collected".
Who remembers "Zot!!", or "Warp"? "Flaming Carrot"?

I've been reading the re-launch of all of the DC titles (DC 52).  Especially Action Comics, Detective Comics, JLA, and Superman.  The Superman is probably my least favorite series at the moment, but I'm a Superman fanatic, so I feel compelled to read it.  Marvel has been kind of lame since the Siege event, so I haven't really kept up with that one.

I heard the hottest titles of the New 52 relaunch are Action Comics, Animal Man, Aquaman, Batman, Batman Incorporated, The Flash, and Swamp Thing. I collected many of them but wasnt able to continue due to the cost of comic books these days and a tight budget.

Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

What do diehard Superman fans think of the new Superman costume design? Does it offend you? Or simply an irritating pet peeve? Or completely acceptable?

Female & I don't still read comics.

This is going back a bit! - Bunty, June, and Judy for me.

My brother had - Dandy, Beano, Topper, and others I can't remember the names of. I'd read his comics as well as mine. The Dandy and Beano especially were for both of us to share.
