I thought this might spark some interesting discussion, so here goes...

Some of us have been drawing our entire lives, some of us are just starting out. We all have one thing in common, though...we all started somewhere - whether from fan comics of our favourite characters, or original concepts right off the top of our heads...

What was the first comic you ever attempted to draw? And how old were you? Smile

I've always doodled, as a kid, but the first time I remember drawing an actual comic with a plot was when I was ten. It was a Sonic the Hedgehog comic when he was at the height of his popularity when Sonic 3 first came out.

I drew my first when I was twelve. The principal protagonist was a fox who wore a magical helmet that allowed him to defend the world against an evil alien and other miscellaneous menaces. Man, it was daft.

Oh, God. I actually didn't draw comics that obsessively, but there was a few I made when I was eight. They were about two sentient black holes that wandered around the garden eating chickweed and talking to woodlice.
I remember this mainly because my Mum still has them ...

The earliest I remember is a Ninja Turtles comic. It was two pages and pfffft the first one was numbered 40, the second one was 41 (if you can't read the comics in the links it just means you can't read Hebrew or just Hebrew written by a weird child with ugly handwriting... either way you're not missing much). I never did more, that was it. Who knows what happened in #1-39...
I still have these but there's no date or anything. I should have been about 7 or 8, something like that.

Ha! Great topic!! I think my first comic was about a superhero from ancient Egypt. I had a fascination about Egypt as a kid. Here's the original drawing I did when I was about 10yrs old. Below that is the more recent version I did a few years ago. My skills improved a bit since the original Very Happy . I really want to do a full comic series but just don't have the time with all the other things I have on the go!!

Jack & Bill, who were some sort of (American?) detectives I guess, around the mature age of eight or nine. Great plots, like catching a criminal who made a minor mistake of leaving his flamethrower at the crime scene... with a sticker with his name, Roger Taylor. Most likely comes from Moore and Elizabeth, not the British drummer. Or the other British drummer. Or any drummer.

I think you should revisit the concept.
It sounds awesome. : D

I don't have the slightest clue what my first comic would have been. I've always like drawing and writing (making stuff up) and my memory is incredibly unreliable when I try and think back that far.

There's some comic strips I drew pretty much with felt pens when I was 13 or so which are currently in my parents' attic somewhere.
Otherwise:
is the first thing I drew and put online about six years ago.

Good lord, I can't recall the FIRST one but as long as I could remember. I think the first one I named was Demon Gate, the main character for some reason wore armor suspiciously similar to Chaz from Phantasy Star IV.

Since I started the topic, I'll add mine...

I was around five when I drew my first comic, and it was called Super Duck. It wasn't really a "comic" so much as a picture book with word balloons, but it sorta counts. I'm quite certain I was inspired by the Archie Super Duck comic described on this page. (This is only half-remembered, mind you, since I never actually owned this comic - it's definitely from the right time period, though...)

After that I went on to copy Sonic the Hedgehog comics endlessly. I had a Sonic knock-off character called "Arcade the Lizard." He had this ridiculous hairdo that literally looked like a giant orange comb sitting on top of his head. Laughing

Wild Horse. Seriously. Never had an urge to draw anything growing up.
