This was a great collection of short commentary by authors on their first (or greatest) comic book loves. It touched on a variety of topics from handling trauma to falling in love to dealing with the day to day grind of existence. Only one of the stories ticked me off - impressive for an anthology!

I really enjoyed this little collection. I didn't get into reading comics until I was a little older (I got my fix from Batman: The Animated Series, and the X-Men cartoon for the most part along with movies) so it was really neat to see different writers' stories on how meeting the right superhero at the right time, or just meeting them early, shaped them or shaped their approach to things. Not just Superman and Batman either. There were even two superheroes that I've never heard of!

Fast read, good fun, and if you like comics you'll definitely find a familiar person here.
