Straight of the Cuff, do you remember the first comic you read and what impact did it have on you, if any?
The first comic I remember looking at was Mad Magazine. But the first comic books I read were Richie Rich, Casper, Hot Stuff and all those other Harvey comics. Really liked them when I was a little kid. I liked the world the characters lived in. When I was 7 I was introduced to AstroBoy and Osamu Tezuka by a Japanese friend. I didn't get into Marvel and DC comics until later, though I may have read a few Superman comics as a little kid. The effect these books had on me were varied, but I think the biggest effect was they developed my love of fantastic fiction and sci-fi.
