With Comic-Con 2011 about to kick off next week, we're preparing for the excitement and madness by taking a look back at some of our favorite videos from last year, where we had the chance to ask Jamie McKelvie and Kieron Gillen, "Amazing Spider-Man" writer Dan Slott, "Sweet Tooth" creator Jeff Lemire, and "The Legend of Neil" stars Tony Janning and Sandeep Parikh about their very first comic book experience reading a comic book.Everyone remembers their first comic book, but for those who go on to create stories of their own, a personal initiation into the world of sequential art can run especially deep. Devoting one's career to the pursuit of crafting comics is rarely done out of anything short of love, and for many creators, picking up a particular issue was love at first sight.

Get some insight into your favorite creators' secret comic book origins below:
