Detective Comics #153, DC Comics, November 1949 – Artist: Dick Sprang.

I know I covered this as a Spotlight pick a while back but it is a fantastic Dick Sprang cover and it has to win the day. Detective Comics #153 is the first solo Batman cover since Detective Comics #37.

I was thinking of Whiz Comics #153 but I didn’t really like how the Death character and Cap. Marvel look like they don’t belong on the same cover, one looks like he belongs in a kids coloring book while the other could fit right onto an old EC pre-code horror comic.

Secret Hearts #153, I swear I had those pants bag in 1974, I was 10 and an immigrant kid so my mom thought these were high fashion. This may explain my inexplicable love for blue comic book covers.

Venom #153 is nasty good and I’m not sure what’s happening on Swamp Thing #153 but the Swastika gets your attention.

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.
