I started this question in another thread and it seemed popular so I moved it to its own thread.

Mine was Godzilla (Marvel 1977) issue #20. The Thing and Godzilla! What could be better! I think it was my older brothers and I stole it :roflmao:.

I remember the day pretty well. My mom gave me a dollar for the quarter bin. I grabbed a Whitman Super Friends comic, that Saint Francis comic from Marvel, a religious comic called Crossfire, and Run Baby Run. Still have 3/4

I know I had comics before this, but this is one of the times I remember my Dad sending me into the comic shop while he went next door to try and get the business from a pizza shop there.

Iron Man #77.  Bought it off a friend for $1.00.  I overpaid for it, since it was a new comic on the stands at the time, but, it was the coolest thing I had ever seen at that time.  It probably is still worth $1.00 now, so, I think I broke even (after almost 45 years).  I still have it to this day..

I may have had others but the one I remember most was Batman 251. I remember how this cover amazed me, I couldn't stop looking at it.

Bought this book at a local convenience store off the newsstand. Remember it clearly. My grandmother won a few bucks on a Bingo scratch-off ticket and gave me the money to get something I wanted. The rows of comics caught my eye. I'm not sure why I picked this one, but it resulted in a spider-man addiction for a while.
