    Don't recall the exact issue, but it was probably an early-50s Superman title; i clearly recall reading the first red kryptonite story…

    Me and Brian Bendis. I'd been reading and enjoying comics for a long time before Fantastic Four #1, but that was the one that blew my brains out all over the back seat of my dad's car.

    Batman #251. "The Joker's Five Way Revenge!" Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams. Geez, who couldn't get hooked from that?I was thrilled that while I was working in the production department at DC Comics, I got to shoot the film from that issue for inclusion in The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told.Love it love it LOVE IT.

    Marvel Team-Up #129 Spider-Man and Vision vs. The Mad Thinker's RobotsThey smash evil versions of Albert Einstein, Mark Twain and, I believe, Abraham Lincoln… Vision questions his own humanity – or lack thereof. And there's a big robot with a club for a fist. Also, one of my favorite comic covers ever:…My father bought it for me at Westmere News and Variety on Western Avenue in Albany, NY, when I was going to visit him one weekend.

    Captain America #193 for me. I got to discover comics, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby all at the same time. Quite a day.
