Covered 365: Day 154

Action Comics #154, DC Comics, March 1951 – Artist: Win Mortimer.

A quick glance at the cover of Action Comics #154 fills your head with impure thoughts but when you have a second look trying to spot the indiscretions they’re not there, nothing but wholesome fun staring you in the face. Still, like Mona Lisa’s smile you know something is amiss. Great cover and highly collected.

Speaking of wholesome fun if you’re a fan of Giant Sized Man Thing then the cover of Thunderbolts #154 is for you.

Strange Tales #154 has a strong cover and Adam Hughes does great work on Wonder Woman #154 (1987 series). I like the strong reds and yellows against the black on the cover of Hot Stuff #154.

Fellas according to the cover of Girls’ Romances #154 all you have to do is get a nice snazzy car.

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.

I have been preoccupied and haven’t kept up, but reviewing the #154s I’m not seeing much motivation. Compare the above to most of the picks in the double digits and I think you have to agree. This is a pleasant cover – you would have to be fundamentally deranged and degenerate to read anything untoward into the image – but it’s pretty much a gag image like loads of other one-shot images including spunky characters, and the connection to Hot Stuff is certainly apropos.

It’s not like there was any other cover that was vastly superior, and I can’t get enthused about the alternates that you mention. I think I would have picked Daredevil.

#155 a little better. I am picking Flash, probably 70% because of the colors and 20% because of the array of villains – I will admit that it isn’t the greatest composition ever. Girls’ Romances is another distinctive DeZuniga cover. (My feeling is that Fred should take an optimistic message away from the events of Saturday night.) Superboy is another high quality Adams contribution. Thor is crazy cool and would be my subjective pick, but I am not going to try to convince everyone.

Blackhawk is yet another issue showing that DC had lost all respect for the property, using a carbon copy of Batman #122, down to the detail of Chuck wondering “What’ll become of me now?”

Walter, really, its just another day at the beach. Superman doesn’t have an impure thought in his head. Now Lois, we know how much sh’d like to shack up our man of steel… 1951, so they’ve been playing coy with one another now for 13 years. Well, maybe not in comic book years.

Its a cute DC cover, but I am with Chris, its not one of your killer picks. Sorry!

On the other hand, I wanted to hand it to you for all the work you’ve done on this little outing so far…and not even halfway thru the year. I hope lots of folks are enjoying it as much as I am.

Hey you guys, get on the comments and let’s hear a big hand for Walter!

A nice pick Walt. Mine would be Thor 154….Classic Kirby Thor in center of the frame with Egypt like etchings telling the story in the back ground.

Nice to see Chris Meli back 🙂

I personally find those 40’s and 50’s Lois covers to be the sexiest she has ever been.
