Every story has a beginning and in the world of comics, ever since there´s been a special fascination with these. No matter if books, magazines or TV series – the first issue of everything that develops into a series is always considered as the most important and valuable, in a collectible sense.
It is the beginning of something new and, in our case, the pure evidence of how a super hero is born. Do you recognize the picture? Right! It´s the very first issue of Canman Comic. Or rather said: the very first draft of the start of a big adventure.
