Covered 365: 353

Batman #353, DC Comics, November 1982. Artist: José Luis García-López.

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.

Day 353 was a better day, at least there were a couple here I’d hang my hat on. Joker covers always get my attention and José Luis García-López’s cover to Batman #353 is no exception, I wonder how Batman gets out of that one??

M.C. Wyman brings his game to the cover of Avengers #353, dramatic, I like it.

Jeff Purves lays down one of the better ‘transformation’ covers on Hulk #353, great effort here.

The two main things that stick out about Cary Nord’s cover to Daredevil #353, the muted soft colour tones and the dead-on contortion of Daredevil’s body, nice cover.

I’m still not sure why I keep staring at Pat Broderick’s cover to Legion #353?

I was trying to remember wgy I got out of comics in the 90s then this cover reminded me.

Oh I can see why that XMen would scare anyone off!! I hate shocking anyone again with my ignorance, but is that Elongated Neck Matter Headed Man on the cover of Legion. The other covers pass the mark in this late stage of the game!

Amen on X-Men. I can think of two reasons that you keep looking at Legion, but in this case I don’t find them terribly compelling. If it wasn’t for that “Die, Die, Die” on Avengers I would have mentioned it.

For #354 I was about to pick Simonson’s Thor for his distinctive art, composition, and colors. However, the more I looked at Avengers, the more I liked it, so I have to go with it. Again with the death theme (I don’t know what was up with the writer/editor at that point), but this cover is just so weird (and giant hand-based to boot), and well-executed for what it is. There is a bit of a steal from Batman #226/#231, but that’s okay, and this comes off as more of a PCH homage anyway. Very cool.

DD’s art shows skill but I never go for a cowering hero, and otherwise there is no story, so at best a mention.

Action goes for the intentional JOWA, but Captain America steals the show with another piece from a middle school notebook.
