    I was around 13 at the time and bought most of my comics (and pulpy Star Trek novels) at a Waldenbooks within biking distance.

Ah, the glorious bicycle! When I was a kid, if I was on my bike and no one was with me, I was probably en route either to a store that sold comics (first Stark's United, and then later Lehotay's, both in Keansburg, New Jersey) or else to our local public library, which was in Middletown. Did you ever ride to a library? (Of course, in my case, we're talking about the 70s rather than this message board's era).

    As for these issues? I bought a bunch: "Classic X-Men," "X-Men," "X-Factor," "New Mutants," "Captain," "Avengers," "Daredevil," "Fantastic Four," "Amazing Spider-Man," and "Spider-Ham."

Sadly, I was disconnected from comics in 1986. I was married and a new father and I guess my own adventure overshadowed superheroic ones.

    "Avengers" was the beginning of the 'Under Siege' storyline, "X-Men" and "X-Factor" were in the midst of 'Mutant Massacre,' "Amazing Spider-Man" spun a battle between Spidey and X-Factor, "Fantastic Four" graced us with some magnificent Marc Silvestri artwork, and "Spider-Ham" featured the first appearance of the Bee-yonder and the black Spider-Ham suit. Ha.

    Good memories.

Good memories are central to this message board's mission in life.
