OMG! I remember when comics were a quarter! That's right - a QUARTER! I still read comic books today, but today they're more stylized and story-driven than the comics I remember when I was growing up ('60s and '70s) - comparingly, they were simplistic and mostly character-driven.

I really enjoyed reading the Batman graphic novels Dark Knight and A Death In The Family, and also Crisis on Infinite Earths. My favorite superheroes are Spider-Man and Batman.
Hi! Hey! Hello again, here we go again!

Mine was Captain Marvel, featuring Billy Batson and his arch enemy Dr. Sivana. We then had our trading assignments. By the following month all had read the ten comics, and it only cost us a dime apiece. Some that we purchased were Superman, Batman, Plastic man. Crime doesn't pay and the Lone Ranger.

Most of my comics are DCs from 1974 into the 1990s. Back when I started buying regularly, the cover price increase from 20 cents to 25 was about to happen. Most of what I buy these days are collections of old comics, like the Showcase Presents trade paperbacks.

I still buy the occasional new DC comic. The "Johnny DC" titles like Looney Tunes sell for $2.25 per copy.

My uncle was a comic freak, had everything incl Archie, Batman, Superman, the first Hulk and Wolverine, Jerry Lewis and TV comics..I think he even had Spiderman Granma sold them all at a flea market for $2 (For the whole box)

I watch comics that have been adapted into TV shows. So like, what I know of the Hulk came from what Kenneth Johnson twisted it into. Ditto Deborah Joy Levine and Superman.
