Thor #183, Marvel Comics, December 1970. Artist: John Buscema.

Hump day folks. We’ve posted 182 days before this post and we have 182 to go after this post. Probably a good time for as little reflection and review.

I’m noticing an obvious thinning out of choices but for the most part each day has been able to give us a handful of strong contenders. I’m also noticing less consensus in the comments and this may be the result of less obvious choices being available to us.

I’ve stopped looking ahead and it’s making each post more exciting as I hope to stumble across some overlooked gems.

Thor’s have always been tough sells out of my bins but Thor #183 is always one of the first to thanks to the great Doc Doom cover.

Captain America #183 looks way better when the yellows are high gloss, I’ve had copies where the yellows are thinned out and faded and I’ve had copies with bright high gloss yellows, the difference is striking.

Gene Colan is at it again with a fantastic cover to Doctor Strange #183.

JOWA has to go to Superboy #183, what kid would buy this cover? Someone was silly enough to suggest Spider-Man #183 for today’s JOWA, rookie.

I too wanted to pick House of Mystery #183 but I didn’t know what the heck was going on, confusing 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.
