This was my all time favorite comic book, and it ran parallel to The Planet of the Apes, The Last Man on Earth and The Omega Man. No wonder I thought this was the coolest comic book ever. I still have every issue in a metal box in a closet. I love this comic. It was my youth. The movies I mentioned and this comic no doubt twisted me a bit into the solitary single loner guy that I am today. I guess very few people would actually ever know that I was sort of skewed by this sort of thing, if I didn't come right out and tell you. I wonder what I might have become if I hadn't read the comic, or seen the movies. I only recently saw The Last Man on Earth, but the end of the world stuff was big when I was coming up. It seemed mankind just might blow the world up. "Damn you all to hell", as Charlton Heston said in the Planet of the Apes.

My brother and I were comic collectors. Connesiuers, actually.

I know I sound like your parents, but I remember when comics went from 10 cents to 12 cents and then skyward. I remember my dismay when I bought a 25 cents Thor (Marvel Comix Group) mag and the story was continued in the next issue. What a pisser!

We use to take our allowences and go over to Cantrell's Used Book Shop (in Atlanta's lovely West End) and buy "vintage" mags (usually 10 years old). Then we'd fight over them.

Favorites? From DC Comics -Superman, Batman and the entire Justice League of America (each individually). From the Marvel group we enjoyed Spiderman, Thor, the Hulk and later - the Silver Surfer. I really liked Daredevil (the movie sucked!). I once owned Spiderman #3, Daredevil #1 and I still have one of the earliest Superman mags ... somewhere.

Let me know when the baseball card thread gets here.

Use to steal my brothers comics and read them. My favorites were Gost Rider, Daredevil , and The Warewolf. Wish he would have kept some, sure they would be worth something.
As for baseball cards and football I sold mine a few years ago and took a long vacation to Lake Tahoe .

My favorite has always been Uncle Scrooge. I had a subscription to his comics back when I was 8-years old and I still have all those old issues. I was thrilled when Gladstone and then Gemstone began publishing Scrooge again and I have subscribed to those issues since the beginning. I even have a signed fine art print of Scrooge from the duckman, Carl Barks.

Spiderman for sure, how could you not love 'the Charlie Brown of superheroes', who was the first to insult the bad guys, and after saving the world gets in trouble for being late to school the next day.

With the recent run of Marvel Comics making it to Hollywood (Conan the Barbarian {not so recent}, The Punisher, Nick Fury {David Hasselhoff as Col Nick}, X-Men, Spiderman, DareDevil, Elektra, Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four), you can see what a visionary Stan Lee was, and had he been born 30 years later, probably would have been the next up and coming Hollywood story teller. I think I read Ghost Rider is being made into a movie too.

I think the Marvel Movies trump the rather weak Superman/Batman movies just because of the depth of the Marvel characters.

On the DC side, call me crazy but I love those Metal Men. Tina (Platinum) was hot for a robot in the late 60's.

In high school I could B.S. my way through any book report by reading the Classics Illustrated version, the Cliffs Notes for the book and then watching the movie. Hollywood didn't change endings like they do now!

Along with my old comics collection, I also have about 100 issues of old Mad Magazines as well. I started with issue #40. My favorite was Don Martin -- his cartoons are deliciously demented ...

Linnie, I don't think Mad or Cracked made you demented -- I think you already were and drawn to them because of it.

Was not a huge Comic book fan (although I would pick-up a Spiderman whenever I got the cahnce).
However, for those of you that were avid creaders, does anyone remember Nova?

I think it was short lived but it was awsome. It was a Marvel comic and the hero was a teenager not sure of his powers. He got his butt kicked all the time. It was a cross between Spiderman and The Greatest American Hero (but it wasn't humorous).

If I remember correctly, I think he died. Anybody have information on this forgeton hero?

I liked all of them, however my favorite as a child was DC comic books. Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Hornet and the Legion of Super Heroes.

I spent many a day reading my DC 80 page Giant comic books and drawing the charachters in them and making my own story. God I wish I had all of those mags now. I actually spent $100.00 dollars on a 80 page giant in the early 90's. It was one that I had as a child. Saw the cover, recognized it and had to have it.
