I started getting into comics a few years back, kind of been off and on when it came to reading them. However, I wanted to be somebody who could say I've read every issue of Iron Man from the beginning. So I began by reading Tales of Suspense and now I'm into Invincible Iron Man v.1 But I have to say, I kind of had to force myself to read what I've read so far. The stories aren't necessarily that good, and the artwork as you can guess is horrible, but thats a given since its from the 60's. I've figured out that I'm not gonna be the type of comic book fan that can play trivia and know exactly which issue so and so happened in and etc, so I've come to the conclusion that I just want to read stuff that I know I will enjoy.
I'm planning on just skipping ahead and getting to the 90's era comics where the artwork is much better. But before I do that, I'd like to atleast be able to read the major story arcs that Iron Man has been involved in before the 90's. What were the first issues you guys started reading, and what are some of the more important ones in Iron Man's history?
