    mine was spiderman 300. a gift from my mother when i was 14-15. its 1300.00 now so i dont feel bad about begging her for it back then(when it was 50). mostly sentimental value though.

    my buddy in junior high was so proud of his silver surfer #1(the legit original). i remember how he loved it when he showed it to me in his basement. geez that thing was like 3500.00 bucks in 93!

    so what are your favorites? or which comic books are stuck in memory?:wavey:

    Amazing spiderman 100 of mine was personally signed by Stan Lee. Mediocre storyline but got me to love Bagley's art. :big grin:

    The most important comic I ever bought was Uncanny X-men #316. It was the start of Generation X, one of the few spin off I enjoyed until they killed it off.

    I'm not sure what issue it was but the Uncanny X-Men where Bishop first appeared really got me into comics back in the day. I think it had a double cover. More recently has been Watchmen, reading the graphic novel for the first time has respurred my interest.

    Amazing Fantasy 15. My Grandmother gave me 250 dollars to buy it when I was in Middle School. I sold it years later for 5K.

    Then just last year, I started regretting selling it, mostly because of the sentimental value so I bought another copy. Not as nice as the first one, but it's nice to have anyway.

    As a bonus, this copy belonged to Kurt Busiek (local comic shop owner knows him). He signed a copy of Superman 654 to me as a nice gesture.

    Warrior #19, the very first issue of V for Vendetta. Found it in a bin wrapped in plastic at an elderly british man's yard sale. It was in near mint condition, only has one small tear on the third page and no yellowing. Flipped through it once, put it in a new sleeve, and it now sits next to my FF #12 and JLA #4 in my document safe.
