They say you never forget your first time...for anything. Well, seen here are the very first issues I ever bought of certain comic book titles. I had looked at comics for as long as I could remember, even teaching myself to read partly via a copy of X-MEN # 11. It wasn't until Batmania hit in the early months of 1966 that I actually started buying and keeping--i.e. collecting--comic books. I always credit the above BATMAN as my first collected comic. Looking at the dates, it seems I gravitated toward more DC before I really started paying any attention to Marvel. I didn't discover Steranko's Nick Fury until more than a year later...and then only because Cap, by then a favorite, guest-starred!
