It'll sound sycophantic but the first credit I really noticed in an 'I want more comics by him' sense, was our beloved Mr. Byrne here. Before that I knew the Kurt Schaffenberger Supergirl and the Al Hubbard Scamp were thee def y'all, even if I didn't know their names, I think Kurt would sign KS at least while Disney forbid that sort of thing. I probably liked the Carl Barks Donald Duck adventure stories for the writing as much as anything, and I also liked the Bugs Bunny adventure stories that imitated them.

John Byrne is the Al Hubbard of superhero comics!

Oh yeah, and Basil Wolverton for the Plop! covers... I knew who he was as he signed them and was very very distinctive, I'm sure those covers sold that title to me as much as anything.

Not to turn this into a Ramona Fradon thread...

Her work is beautiful and so underrated.

In 1969, I would still be reading more older comics than new comics and even with the new comics, there wasn't any consistent purchasing of a single title in series. A strong attraction was to the adventures of the Hulk, where I was introduced to Herb Trimpe. And although not Herb's first Hulk story or cover, it is the earliest memory I have of his work. The Incredible Hulk #118 from 1969, with the Sub-mariner. What kid could resist such a combination?

I became exposed to Ross Andru's Spider-Man in Super Spider-Man weekly here in the UK (B&W reprints). I remember loving them, but at the same time Marvel UK reprinted Lee/Ditko's Spider-Man in a monthly A5 pocket book and I even as a 7 year old kid I knew I loved Ditko.
