I think of age as a question of mind over matter, because if you don't mind it doesn't matter.😂🤣

I have 45yrs of great experience 🤑🤓

45 years young here!

And it is true: the new generations have a too short attention span to be regular comic readers, not to mention general books. So is the sign of our times.

Thanks guys!
And thanks for including your first comic RR!  An always interesting topic.
Mine was a Scrooge McDuck, there were many, and eventually Ghost Rider 26 from 1979.

The first comic I remember was my sister's copy of a very early issue of "Uncle Scrooge." My Grandmother read that to me when I was about four. Ol' Scrooge moved his fortune to a lake in the country to get away from the Beagle Boys. Trouble followed him.

I'll be 75 next month

I'm creating a YouTube channel to share old comics, like comics in video format.

My first comic?  Ask me an easy one, please.  I saw and looked at both Dandy and Beano when very young.  Saw, because my parents didn't buy me comics.  The first one I bought though might have been an issue of Super Thriller comics - these featured Ace Hart. I'd have been 9 or 10.  And a year or two earlier, on holiday, I saw what I later found out was a Frew Phantom.  My dad wouldn't buy it for me. I'm now 73 and a huge Phantom Phan. (But I have a soft spot for Ace Hart)
American comics weren't distributed in the UK till late '59, although I still believe there is some dubiety about the actual date.  American comics turned up in Scotland because there were American bases and some obviously were liberated, finding their way into local newsagents.

Thanks for sharing Paw!
One day back when I was in my early teens I think, I found a Beano.  'Who the heck is this Dennis the Menace?  Holy heck, he's a violent bully!'
I honestly couldn't understand it.  I still can't grasp his popularity.  I also found a UK comic book with a Jaws theme.  'Hook Mouth' or something like that.  I liked that one.
