What attracted you to comics?

The question was asked on a Facebook group: What attracted you to comics? What was the appeal and what kept you there?

The '66 Spider-man cartoon used to play in reruns after school when I was a kid in the 70's. I was enamored of the character and eventually convinced my mom to buy me some Spider-man comics (a 3 pack with Amazing Spider-man issues 192, 193, and 194 were my first) and I was hooked. I loved the adventure and the escapism. I'm still looking for adventure and escapism. Spider-man was my gateway to comics and I am ever so grateful.
