    I'd love it if anyone here could identify my first comic, because it was very exciting for a seven year old kid and inspired a lot of my comic choices in later years. It was a Superman, but Supes didn't appear for the vast majority of the comic. It opened in THE FUTUUUURE, in a time when the world had gone to hell and riot-police roamed the streets with disintegrator rays. A hobo finds Superman's suit in a box in a library and runs outside wearing it, and the riot cops try to shoot him only to find that the beams don't work on the suit. They fire until they hit him in the head, killing him and several other bystanders.

    Jump forward a few more years and there are people in space arguing over the legend of Superman - whether he was man, woman, brawny or brainy or whatever. Superman has become a cultural icon, a legend of the past, and people leave plates of food for him at the table once a year.

    The comic concludes with Superman himself flying down from space and sneaking into one house to eat from the extra plate, before vanishing into the sky.

    Ring any bells? Would have been released around the early 90's, before '95.

    Superman #400 (which I'll post in the 'Awesome moments' thread because it's a good way to get the taste of JMS Superman out of your mouth).

    Wait so Superman just kind of Santa Clauses it up while the world goes to hell? I firmly believe you're not explaining that correctly for someone who has never read it.

    Well, the whole comic was linked by kyle there, so you could read it... The gist is that Superman vanishes from our world, and the comic covers several periods in the future as the legend and mythos of Superman is discussed. In the final short story, it's revealed that Superman has become a santa-like figure, a symbol of general goodness that nobody quite remembers but everyone still respects. Superman then appears in the year 5900 or so, having been shot through time against his will after running into an electromagnetic anomaly above the Earth. He stumbles into a house where he is offered the plate of food set out for the mythical superman, even though almost nobody at the table recognises him. Secure in the knowledge that people haven't all killed themselves in his absence, he flies off into space, satisfied.

    And it's awesome.

    My first comic?
    TEENAGED. MUTANT. NINJA. TURTLES!!!

    cover.jpg

    My GOD was this amazing!!! To this day I still consider this to be one of the greatest comic books of all time. The best part is I always had it, even when I was a little kid. I guess my parents bought it for me cause I was/am a massive TMNT fan. Needless to say THIS was the comic that started my love affair with the medium.
