Default Texans81's comic book giveaway thread #1

So here's a quick rundown:

Q: Why are you doing this?
A: Cuz.

Q: Am I eligible to enter?
A: If you don't have any negative itrader recently, have never personally pissed me off, and are not named George19, then sure

Q: What are you giving away?
A: A comic book jackass, read the title...

Q: Which one?
A: I haven't decided yet. Whichever one grabs my eye when I go to the shop today to pic up my subs but it'll be something decent.

Q: Will it be a new release or something older?
A: What'd I just say?!

Q: What do I have to do to enter?
A: Post a pic of your favorite issue #1 that you own, graded or raw, don't matter, and tell us why it's your favorite. And send a PM to Texans81 with your mailing address.

Q: When will you stop accepting entries?
A: Right after the last one is submitted.

Q: How will you decide which is the last one?
A: I'll point at it and say "this is the last one"

Q: How will you select the winner?
A: Random.org all of the entries.

Q: When will you ship the item out?
A: When I get around to it, but probably not in time for Christmas

Q: Will you post up a pic of the comic you are giving away once you have decided what it is?
A: If I feel so inclined...

Q: Why are you such a snarky ass all the time?
A: Because it tickles me.

So my favorite #1 that I own would probably be this one...



because it's the Punisher and he is uber badass and because I haven't got the older #1's yet so this will have to do for now

*UPDATE*

so like I said, I didn't have anything specific in mind for the giveaway, I figured I'd just meander around the shop until something caught my eye. well given that I'm a fan of his, the Punisher usually catches my eye and I saw this one up on the wall and decided it'd be a good one for the first giveaway

so here it is...Amazing Spider-man #201 featuring the Punisher


entries:

I don't want the comic, let someone else win, but did want to post my current favorite #1



Why? Because Rocket Raccoon is just too cool.

This is hands down my favorite #1. It features my favorite superhero team, and is the one of the finest creations in the history of comics. Plus you got to love the Kirby action.

You know it. It's interesting to see similar tastes as XMen 14 is my favorite cover of all time. I've mentioned it a few times before when we had other similar threads.

This one is mine.

Here is my current favorite #1 book in my collection. I do not want to be included in the giveaway, though. Nice thing you are doing, though.



P.S. Punisher is one of my all-time favorites, too.

This is not my copy, just a stock photo:
This is the series that actually started my comic collecting as a kid. I had a buddy who had the whole series and I thought they were so awesome! I spent $16 on a mint #1 back around 1990 (I would have been 9). That was the most I ever spent on a single book as a kid.

This is the lowest graded under-copy of my favorite #1 issue. My best copy will be back from CGC in approximately 20 business days (probably 30). I freaking love this cover

My favorite number 1 without a doubt has to be this:



It is one of the few comics I still have with a bag and board locked away in my storage locker. As a lover of all things Star Wars and of comics in general when I was a kid, those comics made for a nice fix for this ex-hardcore junkie.
