Simple question: How or what got you to start reading comics? How long ago has it been? Just curious as someone who has only started.

I do remember that I started with the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Riding my bike and saw kids going into a store near where I lived. Saw a dude with a flaming skull head riding a motorcycle.

Been reading comics ever since:

I've been reading comics ever since I was little. I never really liked television and not to many youngsters read actually books.

I loved watching the Batman, Spider-Man, and X-Men cartoons from the 90s. Started reading comics when I watched them all.

It's hard to know for me. I've been reading comics for as long as I can remember. I guess my dad probably got me into them. He was never big into comics himself, but he had a few omnibuses (among them Batman and X Men)that I loved reading as a kid.

My oldest brother and his friends got me into X-Men and Hulk comics. We occasionally meet up at the comic book store and browse around.

We came across a few on sale at a local general department store when I was about 8 or 9.

My first comic ever was a Spider-Man comic my brother bought me in third grade... I have no Idea where it is now. Now I just read Japanese comics and don't really read western ones anymore. Especially since the SJWs ruined the marvel franchises, although they seem to have learned to pay attention to their actual fans and are making changes.

1997 - one piece chapter 1 a german translated manga book for about 15 Deutsche Mark lmao, thats where it started ( forget about dragon ball, saw it as well like any other but it all started with the great one piece)
2003/2004 - i saw anime online on youtube jap dub eng sub, so i started watching one piece since it repeated itself again again again and again up to skypia , the voice actors were far better than ours, the jokes, you actually understood them lol and some were just lost/ignored in the translation process in the german version and i had far more episodes to watch than in my language.. later on i started watching other anime like fate stay night, naruto and bleach and at some point there must have been a story where i really wanted the to know whats happening next... and that was when i was about 13/14 years old... now im 26 i guess i got too absorbed into it lmao
