What was the first comic book you ever bought?
That's easy. It was Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #255. I had owned plenty before that one, but they had been hand-me-down books from cousins and uncles and such, or gifts from relatives who didn't know what I really wanted to read.
Needless to say, it was the cover that hooked me. Baby Kal-El and rushing, panicked Cosmic Boy. I just had to know what was going on.
