Comic Flavor, Teddy moved into Nate’s hometown on 27 January, 1994.
WHOA dem legs!
welcome to the world!!!!
The drawing changes soooo much!
Nate looks so weird!
And so it begins.
Big Nate: The Ultimate Beginning Part 1: The Long Legs! Man, Nate IS getting shorter every year, at least until 2005.
OMG! Gocomics put all the 90s comics strips of Big Nate online?! Time to start reading!
He got shorter somehow:/
Big mates funny I’m a pro already read 1991 in 2 days
Look at them legs!
And thus the world meets Nate :)
Go to January 21,1999.
instead of getting taller, he will get shorterHAHAHAHA
Wow, Nate sure has changed a lot.
The style changed but your sense of humor has never changed, Lincoln
E FIRST ONE!!
How did nate shrink?
First big nate strip! Im surprised!
Nate’s adventure begins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I expected lots of comments being like “First Big Nate!”
He is going to evolve into the type of character created by a pro.
Nate…you look taller now than you will in the future. :D.
Omg lol he sure wasn’t the shortest kid in the school then looks like he’s shrunk and also been in 6th grade fir 25 years but i get why and if u think he got held back your W-R-O-N-G because francis jenny gina teddy and others like artur are still there.
And they call Nate dumb…
Wow this was back when I didn’t even know Nate!
woo for the first comment pure ingenuity was born
LOL SO OLD
good ol’ classics but nate your a ELASTIC BAND :O
Go to September 21, 1992.
ahhh… the first one
The very first!Also, who thought the first Big Nate strip would say “suckers?”
Birth a Word Record Breaker… of detentions.
shorter and shorter
One word: stupid
The comic that caused me to wanna be a cartoonist a few years back. Thanks for being my hero, Mr. Lincoln. I’ve always wanted to send a comment to my hero, but I just made my account today!
Yay I finally got an account! I have been reading these for YEARS but never got an account until now. Also why are his legs like that?
Man, Nate should be 32 by now…
First Big Nate strip EVER! Yahoo!
I’ve read every comic from here to the present!
And a legend is born.
someone has been eating a lot of meat
Nate’s shoe on the last panel is huge!
And the Big Nate era begins.
Love coming back to the first ever Big Nate comic….
Ah…My first Comix!
There’s so much spam comments in this strip, if y’all respect Big Nate comics, stop putting meaningless spam just to add the comment count. Anyway, 26 years of Big Nate already? Wow! Awesome job Peirce, long live Nate!
It’s so funny how they seem like their shouting at each other because all the letters (besides written ones) are IN CAPS but u don’t really notice ’em…
Nate’s growth system is in reverse.thats why he’s tall now but 25 years later he’s 4 feet
A Middle school legend is born
i love big nate
I feel obliged to comment on the first ever Big Nate strip. Welcome to the world, Nate!
it is really wierd is it
FIRST!… TO COMMENT IN 2017!
No wonder he has a higher IQ than ellen! the kid only uses it 15% of the time, though.
I actually liked these better than the new ones. for some reason, they are just better to me. Don’t call me crazy!!!
nate looks so different
if i comment 2 more times their will be 200 comments
(200) wow 200 comments on one comic strip. cool
the days before polls and the spam police.
exactly no bs in the comic section
This has more commetts than the poll war
Nate’s legs look… different.
Thats Alot Of Comments
The first Nate
Wanna hear a joke?(joke is in the replys menu)
And a legend was born
The best comic is born!
Too bad Nate doesn’t use his intellect for school. The difference between Nate and Ellen lies in the fact that although Nate has a higher I.Q. (Intelligence Quotient) than Ellen, he does not apply himself at school and only uses his intellect for immaterial things whereas Ellen is sedulous and works meticulously at school to earn high marks.
the first BIG NATE STRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
is it just me or dose Nate get SHORTR?
Man such a long line of comments
what date is the first strip in color?
@Gina Hemphill-Toms, was that comment really necessary? “The reality is that he doesn’t.”
Pretty clever, but that won’t work on teachers.
when is the first appearance of coach john?
First Nate Comic
Is it just me or is that Nate is weird and starry
He is so WEIRD!
How did he get shorter
Way back when…
First Appearance for Nate Wright
Don’t like the style, but it’s still great to read. :D
is nate a good person?
The first strip!!!you’re donetype “done!” In the comments section if you’re done!
his shoe size in last panel XXXXXXXXXXXXXL
This isn’t the most commented strip, the strip of december 30th 2012 has 1028 comments today! (12th june 2018)
The ultimate big nate quest. Go to March 27 2006

Nate is born
Yah! 260th comment. XD
I’m gonna read every last Big Nate strip starting here (and skipping re-runs.)
The beginning of my life of comics started here
Here’s a survey. Which do you prefer: Classic Nate or Modern Nate? I think Classic in some ways and Modern in other ways.
I wasn’t even alive when this was made and it’s still seems like I’ve read it before…
He has kept this journal for 27 years
This is neat strip
Nate’s gotten shorter by the years, not taller..
Makin’ my mark in the comic as old as time, the one that started it all. I like cheese.
Welcome the the beginning, friends.
If ya see this, type f in the chat
He had 18 words at the start, he was close!
Kids beating the system lol
The first Big Nate comic. Back when the Mario game in style was Super Mario Bros 3

Good ol’ classic big nate.
Pickles the Cat is here!
Man, his drawings make life a lot easier

Ok guys. Starting here, I’m officially going to comment on EVERY Big Nate strip. Every one.
And thus a legend was born…
big Nate gets better and better each year, I love them!
I’m the 361th comment
The start of Big Nate.
I’ve seen this comic about a million times, but to me, Nate still looks so weird.
His head is as big as his shirt.. Also, this is my 1st comment. I have been reading Big Nate on here since July and I finally made a account.
A picture is worth 1000 words
amazing how many comments there are (it takes 10+ seconds to load them all…)
Man. I can not believe that this was the first comic ever. He’s changed so much (Example A, you can define his legs). But through all 29 years, he has remained almost exactly the same in terms of personality. Also, poll. Do you think the older comics were better, or do you like the new ones more? I, personally, like the old ones better.
Vote dogger 2020
Everyone sign this
Was this the first comic he made?
first comic yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
First appearance of Nate.
It’s funny because that might actually be true at this point in time if he actually a real person.
Nate has shrunk quite a bit!
commenting on eery big nate comic 1
Genius! No homework for a week!
Start of a legend
Woah man thats rad
The first Big Nate comic…

I’m so glad that Lincoln’s drawing style has improved so much.
A hundred every day? Wow!
I love bignate

Am I the only one who likes the old comics better?
Nate’s legs are SO TALL. Sorry that sounds wrong.
Big Nate looks strong.Big Nate also has long legs
i hate it when nate is drawn like that
i was hoping for a comment that was almost 30 years ago
Is this still the most liked Big Nate strip?
LOL ITS OCTOBER
why do people like and comment a lot in this strip? is it because it is the first strip?
Wow, I hit random and ended up on the very first strip…

A legend has been born. A very weird legend though
And a legend is born

The very first Big Nate comic. sniff
This is where it all started
tbh always the old strips are the best until there became colored strips
How does the first strip have half the comments of the most commented strip? (Btw I’m saying this at the time that this comment has 500 comments and the most commented has 1000 so if this info is inaccurate then don’t cry).
Anyone still reading this in 2021?
Happy 30th anniversary Lincoln Peirce! (Sorry im pretty late but still)
the first ever big nate strip
Is it me or does he look skinnier?
No! He’s flat!
Newcomers look back at this and laugh, OGs look back at this and cry.
The reason why the characters look so much different now and then is because Lincoln Peirce draws the comic by hand, not on the computer, and he can’t draw identically every single time, but a computer potentially could.
The old era. Positives: Better comics; not focused on one story a week Negatives: worse artwork
Faze Obama likes this strip
Just scrolling down to this strip makes me feel like im time travelling
i press random and it brings me here
This is the first Big Nate comic ever made! Nate’s legs though! Geez!

He looks like the age of 14.
making my mark in history by commenting
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall” -Nelson Mandela

This is where it all began…
Ive seen this so many times. Imagine what the first person to see this comic in papers must have been like.
His adventure of ups and downs begins
the comic that started it all…
I must have billions of words in my iPad then….
I shall be apart of history

Sawnic10 is Darkman666 and the man behind the slaughter and scout from tf2.

Poll: Are there any episodes of “Spongebob” you like that you used to hate? For me, it’s The Chaperone (2000) and The Great Patty Caper (2011).
The Start of an era.
So this is how a legend began
And here’s where it all began… a journey of laughs, sighs, and general fun
SO MANY COMMENTS!
I sucks nate doesn’t work hard, he would be a straight-A student
If Nate actually tried in school, then he would be more successful!
Ahhhhhh the first arc
[INSERT music played I commercial for new show here]
Big Nate In: Pilot
10/10 first comic has to be!
Hi . . . . . . . . 0 0 . U . …………….. l……………l
Nate only grew up one year since this comic!
pog first bn
Nate technically did write “a hundred words”
the beginning of the spiky-haired kid (lol)
And so it began
Nate looks so strange here. His legs are longer, his head is a different shape, he has no color, wow… and he’s about two feet taller.
its 3 am
FIRST BIG NATE STRIP EVER! OH YEAH!
his legs are kind of scary
…and lo, ’twas on this day that America was introduced to its newest comic strip legend!

The rise of a Legend
FIRST NATE COMIC!!!
TF he has changed a lot
Wow lots of comments on this one
Ahhhhhhh the first big nate strip
what is your fav food?
1991 yo he old but look at those skinny legs
That proves the theory that a picture speaks more than a few words!
What I think would be a cool last Big Nate comic is this same one except with his current look!
SHESHHHHH DOS LEGS LOOKING FINE………
The one that started it all
let us take a moment to appreciate how oldschool this comic is.
It isn’t that funny but it sure is sentimental
wow, so this is where it all started
You can tell it’s Calvin and Hobbes inspired…
Nate has smarts. I guess his brain isn’t wired to do good at school.
Kids cry while watching Titanic. Men cry while reading this
@hev1 I don’t think nate’s very smart. This comic is an example
Just re-reading the whole big Nate comics…..Again
FIRST STRIP! OH YEAH!
Big Nate poll guys: Do you like the Big Nate Novels better (Big Nate In A Class By Himself, Strikes Again, On A Roll, Goes For Broke, Flips Out, In The Zone, Lives It Up, and Blasts Off) or the Big Nate TV Show? They are all good, but you can only pick one
WOAH?!?! BIG NATE USED TO BE TALL!
AH the OG
As my first comment on this website, I give my tribute to the one that started it all
nate looks so weird a long time ago
First ever strip!
And where it all began…
Does Nate grow smaller every year?
This is where one of the best comics of all time started, 5/5.
im about 30 years late to this comic
My mans legs be lookin like an SCP jeez
WELCOME TO THEE FINALE
SCP – 69420 – Big Nate
wow… the first one… big nate was a very important part of my child hood so i really appriciate the first one
Wow! Look at how tall this kid is! Surely he won’t shrink down to 4’6…
Riddle of the day: What word in the English does the following descriptions: the first 2 letters signify a male, the 3 letters signify a female, the 4 letters signify a great person, and the whole word signifies a great woman.
That’s a LOT of comments, but nat looks about 5’2 not 4’8 I meAn, look at them legs
gonna start binging ill come back with results
The first comic. Nice
AND SO IT BEGAN
the 1st big Nate
the first one
Stab with a pencil
Poll How much money do you have
I’m going to start reviewing all the Big Nate strips. Wish me luck! Or don’t. This is a pretty original first strip. 7/10.
Many words can describe a picture, so hes right
Welcome to the world, Bog Nate
the era of 91 to 95 was the best, not saying the new ones arent good, theyre great. Or should i say big.(haha dad joke.)
The only reason this installment of BN should exist is to humor the author. Come on, this is what made the strip get syndicated???
It’s nice to see Pierce’s progression in how he draws his characters as he’s grown as an artist over the last 30 years.
FICKING HALL though… the legs… THE LEGS!!! NEVER SKIP LEG DAY!
