How old were you and why did you start in the first place?
I was 7 or so. Maybe younger I'M 30 now. Every Saturday my mother would take me to the laundromat. Next door was a bodega that had comics. It was easy and cheap entertainment for me. I'd read that comic over and over. I still have them Tmnt Batman and Ghostbusters. Wasn't a few years later I got into marvel.
Must have been about 6 years old. It was a natural progression. The toys I was really into back in the 80's were the Super Powers and Secret Wars figures. I was buying comics before I could actually even read them. The first thing I remember reading all by myself was a Batman comic that came with a cassette tape.
I was five the first time I can remember reading a comic book (in 1995 - it was the Star Wars Droids Special), but I didn't start reading comics seriously until 2010, spurred on by the MCU and a friend who liked Deadpool (whether or not he still does I don't know).
I started reading the Spiderman comic strip in the Sunday paper when I was six and BatmanTAS themed comic books made for kids a year later. I was 12 though when I started reading official comic books and graphic novels, that was the year Batman Begins was coming out. My mom would take us to the library almost every other day and it just happened that the only cushion chairs to sit down was by the graphic novels and Batman: Long Halloween was on display.
when i was 5. my mom really got me hooked into reading by using comics.....and 31 years later.......still goin strong on the comics, and now working on doing the same with my son....
When my family moved 5 minutes away from Mile High Comics, so around 11.
I dunno, four maybe, in the UK Dandy and Beono release a annual every Christmas and Mine go back to the year of my birth, the first things I read were comics, but I can't remember what age I started reading... I thought most kids grew up with the Beano, Dandy and Topper, do other countries have comic Annuals?
Ahhh when I was very little I can't even remember, I guess I watched like the 90's batman films, then the x-men and spiderman tv series and then it kind of just continued on from there and interspersed into picking up any comics we (me and my brothers) could. Some of our earliest were Judge Dredd and Lobo, accompanied by your typical Batman, x-men etc.
The first time I pick up a comic book was around the age of 9, but I didn't start reading and collecting comics on a monthly bases until about the age of 13-14.
The first comic I read was a reprint of Captain America #109 that came with a Marvel Legends action figure.
