Wow, what a blast from the past. I had forgotten about Blackhawk. I read the comic when they flew F-86s. Blackhawk had the two seater for Chop-Chop to ride in back. Blackhawk, Henderson, Olaf, Andre, and that German guy with that awful accent! Where are they now that we really need them???
I started reading comic books when I was pretty young, and graduated to MAD magazine when I was about 12, I think. The whole DC comics universe of the time was fun for me. In particular, Superman and Batman were at the top of my shopping list. In particular, Superman had quite a story line, that grew more and more complex with time. A bit later, I got into some of the Marvel crowd - Iron Man was a favorite as were The Fantastic Four. Both featured nerds who did good. Spiderman, X-Men, Hulk, and many others came after I'd lost interest in comic books.

He was much grumpier than Mickey,more like a real person,for all that he didn't wear pants.
Uncle Scrooge was another favourite.
I never had many Warner Bros based comics,but I liked Bugs. I only occasionally saw Daffy Duck in comics,but since I reached my "second childhood",I'm very fond of Daffy!(but that's from cartoons)
Batman always struck me as more "possible" than the other Super heroes,as he didn't actually have any super powers.
Anybody remember "Twin Earths"--the drawings always looked similar to "Terry & the pirates",& others of that ilk.
How about "Lil Abner"?
Vampirella, Creepy, Eerie, and Famous Monsters of Filmland were the books I would dig into.
Some comics. Peanuts, Archie, Sgt Rock, Sgt Fury.
I guess I'm a traditionalist, my favorite was always Captain America. Just turned 39 and I still read Cap every month.
I never really got into comic books, but Saturday was cartoon morning, so I'd watch for a couple hours... Space Ghost was the best!
I didn't have much time other than that, worked in the family business after school and on weekends.

FWIW The Mekon was the ruler of the Treens - residents of Venus.
I must correct my previous post. I guess I am disqualified from answering since I never grew up..
Just because you own a car doesn't mean you own the road.
