Batman #291, DC Comics, September 1977. Artist: Jim Aparo.
Day #291 was a bit underwhelming though I do think the winner is a keeper.
One of the most sought after Batman covers in this era is Jim Aparo’s cover to Batman #291, there is no such thing as too many villains on a cover.
When I think tumbler I think a nice Irish Whiskey, not so Mr. John Byrne. He thinks some lame-ass villain who stomps on Cap’s shield, but I do like the cover (though I may have picked it just to slide in my whiskey joke).
This one is for my pal Mr. Owen, he’s a prof and I’m just passing along some Stan Goldberg advice from the cover Pep #291 for those days where the boys just aren’t paying attention.
I’m trying hard to convince you all that Keith Giffen had a great run of covers on the Legion title, here’s his cover to Legion of Superheroes #291 as more proof.
A great comic book cover matching each day of the year, 1 through 365. Please chime in with your favourite corresponding cover, from any era.
Hmmm… the Batman is good but not great…Pep is fun but wouldn’t fly by todays standards… Legion looks like a swath of 70’s wallpaper and that Cap assailant looks like a Batroc wanna be…. but you can’t say lame ass in this column Walt… be politically correct and gender neutral and say he is a villainously challenged individual… we will all KNOW you mean lame ass!
PEP is today’s winner !
Really like the Batman #291 choice today, but I think it is completely overshadowed by what is happening to poor Batman on the cover of Detective #291.
Also thought Thor #291 was a really good cover, and liked the cover scene Kubert created on Our Army at War #291.
I gotta get with the times Gerald ! I really wanted to go Pep but in a weak moment I figured villains trump girls’ behinds !? I liked Our Army #291 as well.
I looked at that Batman but it is a standing around cover and while I liked Aparo’s Spectre, I’m not too hot on his Bat-villains. So no. And you definitely have not convinced me on the Giffen. That Pep just continues to astound me in the same way as Schomburg Japanese War covers – can you imagine the firestorm if this were sold to kids on the newsstand today? (Kids: “What’s a newsstand?”)
I didn’t think today’s selection was bad, but tomorrow’s is worse. I will go with FF because it’s so well drawn, but if that doesn’t convince people then I’ll go with the close runner-up Thor. I also like Incredible Hulk but there’s something off about it, so a distant third. Otherwise nothing worth mentioning.
JOWA to ASM for the weird robot and the non-sequitur about Pittsburgh.
you guys must ignore most of todays pop culture to think that PEP #291 is any kind of “me too moment”
This is tame by today’s progressive Liberal double standards
He included Pep to get Owen to grade on curves~cough~…
