My mother threw out most of my comics when I went off to college, but a few years ago when my dad died, I found a brown paper bag in his basement containing a few comics I'd left at his place at some point in my early teens. Among them was this, this first comic I ever owned.
5 year old me seems to have carefully outlined most of the Namor figures throughout the comic in ballpoint, which would make the Marie Severin/Johnny Craig team my first artistic influence. Severin reasserted this influence six or seven years later by sketching me a free drawing at a con in Pittsburgh, which I took home and copied obsessively several hundred times.
So, any of you folks out there remember your first comic?
