Do you remember your 1st comic? Mine was Super-Villain Classics #1 published by Marvel Comics featuring the origin of Galactus, Devourer of Worlds!
I didn't realize it at the time, but this one-off issue was cobbled together from pieces of older comics (mostly by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby), and assembled to present a definitive chronology of Galactus' earliest days. This comic didn't make me a huge Galactus fan, though the big guy does claim a special place in my heart. The comic did help inform my collecting tastes & habits even at the young age of 6 years old.
I talk a little bit about this in the latest episode of I'm the Gun, which you can download HERE. I'll also, of course, be recapping the issue, and providing images below.
