Covered 365: Day 111

Captain America #111, Marvel Comics, March 1969 – Artist: Jim Steranko.

Poster art at its finest, this cover is so in the zone and of the time, its great stuff from Mr. Steranko.

That Unexpected #110 was a nice surprise and how about that Tarzan #111, great fight scene. High grade copies of Marvel Tales #111, Doom Patrol #111 and Turok #111 are books you keep!

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.

  1. “Poster Art at it’s finest.” Sure have to agree with that statement. Steranko sure made a number of poster-worthy covers over the years, but this is a iconic one to be sure. Great pick!

  2. Sadly Steranko did far too little art in his prime CK….but I agree that what he did was great. Cap 110 was better though …. two marvel icons.
    Its a called third strike on Walt’s Captain America 110 miss. Walt caught looking at a fastball down the middle. Yerrr out Big guy !!!!
    In fact that run of Cap covers from 100 to 119 might be as fine of run of covers ever. Kirby Steranko Colan Romita.
    Coulda saved Big Walt a lot of time…..just saying 🙂

  3. While I picked this one as runner-up, I am not a huge fan. I really like some of the Steranko Nick Furys, but this one only gets a mention for the period pop art. I think you had to be there to gush over this.

    Like yesterday I had very little time to consider my picks for the next day, so I might have missed something subtle. Once again Blue Bolt gets the pick, this time by a wide margin. Yes we have JIM with Thor and the Hulk fighting over the hammer, but I don’t really think it makes it as “great”.

    Also, regarding the cover telling a story – exactly what is the story Just Married is telling? This looks like a great one for a caption contest.
