Falling in Love #121, DC Comics, February 1971 – Artist: Tony DeZuniga.
I remember back when I was thinking about doing this project, I had some issues already picked way in advance. I wrote a quick list down, Surfer #4, Spidey #50, Superman #75 (death of) and a few others, Falling in Love #121 was one of those pre-picked issues. I’ve always been a Romance Comics fan especially some of the great over the top covers.
Years ago a friend and great artist in his own right Leif Peng put me on to the great Bernie Fuchs. Wow, off the charts stuff. Falling in Love #121 always reminds me of Fuchs and so I can’t miss this opportunity to pay tribute.
There were lots of worthy contenders today, I liked Four Color #121, Doom Patrol #121 and Heart Throbs had another strong cover in #121 (trust me young lady you don’t want anything to do with that loser).
Batman #121 is famous but it wasn’t in serious consideration, Spidey #121 is also famous but as you know I’m not a big fan of my heroes showing me their backsides on the cover.
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.
