I was buying comics, or having comics bought for me, when I was 5 or 6. And when old enough to be given pocket money, I would buy a comic on the way back from the Saturday morning pictures. These would have been British titles as American comics weren't distributed until 1959. The comic habit has stayed with me, something which didn't happen with many friends and acquaintances, who just let them go. It's heartening to find young fans on here. There is so much to read and learn and despite the few new titles I buy regularly, they don't have the same feel, smell, look and potential for enjoyment as old British and American comics. But then, I'm biased.
