I was inspired by another thread about UK comics and how many issues there was.... Then I went on a tangent of how I got them. Okay, here is my topic! How did you discover the Thundercats comic and what inspired you to buy them or get addicted to them......I am a hopeless addict to collecting them. I am so fussy.....every tcat comic I have is in a bag and board! Like I said in another thread, I got my first Tcat comic while food shopping with my parents when I was ten. I saw that #10 Graveyard of Memories comic and begged my father to buy it. He was so sweet. Here is a man that is a cab driver and lives off of tips and pays $1 for a comic. Bare in mind, $1 is alot back in 1986. You can buy a pound of ground beef or such to feed a family. This was in a Pathmark. Pathmark was discount grocery food store but in that small mall......there was this chocolate candy store that had this chocolate candy maker in the window with melted chocolate in a mixer bowl constantly moving. ROFL oh how my sisters and I would drool as we watched the melted chocolate pour down this metal bowl into the mixer. Anyways, back on topic. After many years and growing up, I got married, had kids, got a home and all that jazz. Then in 2003 it happened.....Thundercats came back. I remember seeing the Wizard Comic book being sold in an drugstore while I was pushing my newborn daughter in a stroller. I sheepishly picked it up and bought it. Then I glanced over it and put it away for a while. Next thing you know, the Return came out and I was with my lil sister and we past this comic book store. I looked hungrily at the new comic and my sister told me to get it. I said I couldn't because the guy working there went to school with me and he and his friends made fun of me when I was ten and I liked the Tcats. She told me to *uck em and tell them to get a life and buy the comic. I did only because she was there. Then it hit me.....every month I would go to the library and look at the Wildstorm site.....wondering when the next issue would come out. Then I would go to the store and buy the issue. Then because I didn't have a computer, I went online at the library. I discovered that there more than one Tcat fan out there. The first Tcat fanfiction I ever read was ThundercatRoar's Fanfiction. It was the only one that I ever saw with the character "Lynxana" in it. I know it was several chapters long but for the love of God, I can't remember the name of it. It was about an OC that was part monkian and part thunderian.....she happened to be adopted by Panthro.. It was a Mary Sue but a well written one that I enjoyed alot. She even did some Tcat fan art. I have been in the fandom since 2004 and have yet to see a fanfic that was cannon and yet mary sue and very well written.....since then.....all tcat fanfictions are the same thing....meet Lion-O....get Cheetara pregos....where she was so irresistible Panthro and Tygra wanted her.....have the next heir, and all was well in the kingdom. Blah, blah, blah! Okay....me thinks Capt. Morgan did enough typing for one night LOL Yo ho ho! So I got way off topic about comics...... what got you into collecting them?
