My first comic book that I read as a child was 'Oor Wullie'. He is a Scottish lad who is full of pranks. His cartoon strip is still as popular today as it was 30 years ago when I first started reading it. Not sure if he will be known worldwide but he should be. Can you remember your first comic and has it stood the test of time, ie. still published.

Tin Tin and Snowy, I remeber them well and the Captain. I also think there was to other main characters in the story books called the Thomson Twins, they wore black suits and boller hats. I remember watching the cartoons on TV. I could be wrong but I think it was written by a French author. Here's a clip to bring back some happy memories. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjrJZyTM4Hk

I did some checking and it turns out the author was actually from Belgium and not France as I thought. The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic strips created by the Belgian artist Georges Rémi (1907–1983), who wrote under the pen name of Hergé Herge sounded French to me, oh well I was close.

My first comic was Roy of the Rovers. It was about a man called Roy Race and he used to be player manager of Melchester Rovers, Unfortunatly he had a helicopter crash and he lost his legendery left foot(the race rocket). They stopped publishing it soon after, they did start it up again with his son has the main character but it didn't really catch on. When I was reading Roy of the Rovers their was another script called Hot shot Hamish and Kevin 'mighty' Mouse, That was good I used to enjoy that more than the one about Roy Race.

i had to sit in meditation, trying to recollect the memory. It was so far and deep, as the last comic strip I read was some six months back, in a friends' clinic, waiting for him to finish off his patients. NOW, the first comic i READ as a child was MANDRAKE the MAGICIAN with my favorite being LOTHAR. did I remember correctly? .. I was always dumb-struck at the hypnotic gestures that MANDRAKE used on the villainous characters, and his wife, PRINCESS NARDA. we have one NARADA in HINDUISM, who is a holy saint travelling all three planes, the earth, heavens and the nether world. .. lols.

I have heard of that one, but not read it. As a young girl, I used to read Twinkle a lot, but I don't know if it is still published these days. I also read Bunty, Jinty, Mandy, Tammy, Misty, a whole load of those and loved them. It's a shame there only seem to be glossy magazines these days, even for young kids.

Haddowz hi I had to really think as that was a long long time back, so I think it was Archie and Veronica and Superman those were probably the only ones I read as my parents wanted me to read real'books and I sure did. I learned to read when I was five. I was always an avid reader a nd still am but not silly comic books. mysteries, who dunits and Stephen King,anything by him,love it. Are you then from Scotland? I am here in California in the US. Superman I think is still doing fine but I do not know about Archie and Veronica. will have to googly that one.

I think my first comic book was the X-man or Tails from the crypt they were my older sisters comics I wasn't able to buy my own first comics until a bit later lol coz I was much younger and I couldn't afford them back then, I think I was 12 or so my sister bought them to study differnt drawing techniques, and she would let me barrow her so I could study them too, because we both loved to draw in those days and still do in fact I still buy comics on ocasion.
