My brother was 10 and so more 'sophisticated', he bought a Captain Marvel #27 (July cover date, still on the stands),

Same as me; same age, same comic.

Flattered to be considered sophisticated.

6p British copy, though.

I have learned to really appreciate worthless comic books. They survive every the purge when I do them, and I can read them without worry. 

So here’s to Plop!, Alien Legion, Denny O’Neil’s The Question, and low grade Marvel reprints!


The value is in the quality of the story and art. Never worthless.

all my paper route money went to

Where Creatures Roam , Where Monsters Dwell, Creatures on the Loose !! 

all those reprints , not worth squat today but i loved them ...

Pretty much the only way I knew how to get those older Marvel / Atlas stories in England in the 70s, along with the 100 pagers for DC Gold and Silver Age.

My first comics were Hulk #199 and FF #172, but I didn't buy them -- we were visiting a friend's house and he had some Marvel comics for us to read.  (*swoon*) 

As far as buying one from the local drugstore, I think it was this one -- what a cover!


Avengers (1963) #150

I remember reading a 3D Batman (maybe this one) in the 1960's... didn't get very far into the story because the 3D effect made me nauseous. Comic book disappeared soon after.

I have nightmares when I see that book. It's strange how childhood memories can last a lifetime .
