World”s Finest #253. From 1978. Cover features Superman in the act of unmasking Batman. The actual story didn’t have this specific scene, but did involve Batman going undercover in a foreign kingdom, if I remember correctly.

The first book I ever purchased from DC comics was Infinite Crisis #1 when I came back to comics. Before that books were purchased by my dad and I read them. I had moved to San Francisco and they had Wonder-Con at that time. Infinite Crisis was being announced and I remember Dan Didio saying you want multiverse, you got multiverse. He then showed a pic from it and since then I have preferred DC. I found myself drawn into every single character and have been reading back issues catching up ever since.

First ever?..That’s mid 1970’s I’d say (roughly) an issue of Super Friends. all I remember about it was that the Monocle was the bad guy.

Batman detective comics #1, the beginning of the new 52 run. Got it from Toys R Us. I don’t have a comic book store or even a book store in my town, so my collection is limited. But dang it was good to start.

Action comics 432, i think, which remains one of my all time favorite single issue stories. It was a teamup between supes and the og toyman, winslow p schott, against a new toyman, jack nimbull, who schott thought was tarnishing the toyman name & rep. It showed superman’s generous spirit, even towards an enemy, to help bring down a possibly worse criminal using the same shtick in order to convince the older foe that they didn’t have to be enemies, that the older foe could do good in the world. The ironic twist end to the story i found out some years later. In superman 305, i think it was. Stuff happened to cause schott to turn down a darker path, which showed that even superman can make a mistake by not following up on something he should have…

The 2 issues taken as a single story showed that comics could tell complex stories that were for not kids only, and paved the way for more adult stories later…

Hey, BrightKnight, you are not old, but instead a seasoned, loyal DC fan who had the good fortune to live through the Silver Age of comics. I own that Detective Comics #298 (first Silver Age Clayface) and it is a prized gem in my Batman collection. My first Detective Comics was #351 (The Cluemaster’s Topsy-Turvy Crimes) and it was either the 2nd or 3rd comic I ever purchased as a kid.

It was so long ago I no longer remember but I’m pretty sure it came packed with a Super Powers action figure.
