Detective Comics #168, DC Comics, February 1951, Artist: Lew Sayre Schwartz .
For me it was a close race between the winner Detective Comics #168 by Lew Schwartz and the runner up Daredevil Comics #168 (pic below) by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Both have a central character posing on the cover so both are lacking the action I think would make them even better. The Detective Comics #168 cover kills with it’s jet black background and the bright yellow burst and title mast and lets not forget the rainbow of question marks.
Those are DC Romance tears Superboy is crying on the cover of Superboy #168! I couldn’t help but think of the late great Dr. John when I saw the cover to Girls’ Love #168, “I was in the right place but I must have took the wrong car…”.
Battle of the big hands happening with Strange Adventures #168 versus Thor #168 (pic below).
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.
