I am happy to announce the latest update to the site; THE CBSI FIRST APPEARANCES LIST


This is a living list.  We will continue to update it as time goes on, as I am sure we will get lots of suggestions for characters to add as well as lots of “You missed X”.

A huge thanks to Inigo for pioneering this monster.   This list has been added to the menu bar and can be found in the link below as well.

    Is there a reason why Fone Bone’s 1st app is Bone #1 rather than the OSU strips or the collected edition from the ‘80s? I’m just curious if those College books count,

      I actually thought it was Thorn Tales

        Yes, “Thorn” was a serial comic strip Jeff Smith drew for the OSU newspaper, The Lantern. A bit later, he put together and sold a TPB called “Thorn: Tales From The Lantern” that collected all the strips in one volume, which was then only sold on campus. Just curious if those strips should be the first appearance or Bone #1. I would prefer Bone #1 since I have it, but I don’t know what the rules the market would accept.

    Major X #1 is NOT his 1st appearance. Why did you bow down to Liefeld? Traitor!

    How do we suggest characters for the list? Is there a submission form?

    • Ben C

      Post it right in here my friend. This post was meant to start a discussion, we are absolutely looking for suggestions, responses, updates etc and we will update this every few weeks or so.

        Awesome. I actually have a list of notes that keeps track of all the 1st appearances and major events. A lot of them are from my own personal research. Not all of them are recognized by CGC when most of them clearly are. I’ll only post stuff the CGC officially recognizes.

    This is really amazing. Kudos! I remember when Inigo started this in the forums a couple years ago. Great to see it come to life. I randomly picked a couple characters just to see how it worked. Is Damian Wayne really Battle for the Cowl #3?

    Flash Comics #89: 1st Rose and Thorn
    For SA Huntress, I’m always confused what’s generally considered the 1st Huntress, but I always thought it was considered DC Super-Stars 17 even though that came out a couple weeks after All-Star 69 I thought.

    Great idea! Correction about Uncle Scrooge: his 1st appearance is Four Color #178 (Christmas On Bear Mountain).

    Great feature! There used to be a searchable online database of 1st appearances but it no longer works. It was a little difficult to use because it only had a search feature but no browsing options. So you had to know the character’s name perfectly to find what you were looking for. Being able to browse alphabetically is huge help, and also more fun as I run into characters that I completely forgot about. Thanks!

    I believe Big Hero Six first appeared in Sunfire & Big Hero Six #1 a couple months before Alpha Flight #17
