Blue Bolt #114, Star Publications, August 1952 – Artist: L.B. Cole.

Guys!! Don’t yell, just hear me out. I looked and I looked, compared and compared because I dared not role out 2 Coles in a row (though we are in Cole Country) unless I was sure of myself. Blue Bolt #114 is off the charts, the colors, the details, the composition, this is one of Coles best ever as far as I’m concerned and while there were other strong #114s none came close.

If I had nerves picking my Blue Bolt #114 imagine the butterflies I would have had if I went with my second pick I Love You #114. I liked Strange Tales #114 with it’s great battle scene and I liked the funky look of New X-Men #114. Being the patriotic Canadian kid that I am I almost went with House of Secrets #114, I think those guys played for my Leafs last night!

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.
