Batman #171, DC Comics, May 1965, Artist: Carmine Infantino .
Carmine Infantino’s cover to Batman #171 is recognizable from across the convention floor, such a standout, I’ve owned a few but I’ll always remember seeing a copy in Boston maybe 20 years ago, raw, tight, glossy and mesmerizing, should have bought it!!
As Chris mentioned in yesterday’s comments I love Hulk #171 (pic below), great cover form Trimpe but it has to get the runner up today.
How about a Disco Richie Rich #171 (pic below), a JOWA candidate but I like it! I remember I liked Disco when it came out until I had to hide my liking it for fear of getting beat up. 1978, wasn’t that the year the Disco Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series?
What else caught my eye? Hey check out the Art Germ cover on House of Mystery #171, and check out John Buscema channeling his inner Frazetta on the covert of Conan #171.
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.
