My First Comic
Hey kids, near as I can recall, the first comicbook that I ever read was Little Dot #71 (Aug. ‘61)
I used to sit on the newsstand of my Uncle’s grocery store and read comics. I never bought any of them, I just read ‘em, figuring all of the money I saved by not buying them. I figure that if I probably read (but not bought) a couple of million dollars of comics during those days (including the first Silver Age Flash and all of the early Marvel Comics).
In my 20s I found this comic at a show, but it was $10.00 and I felt that was too much for the book (I wanted it for purely sentimental reasons). Then changed my mind, but never went back to get it. I’ve been looking for it ever since.
