Our Army At War #196, DC Comics, August 1968. Artist: Joe Kubert.

Did Joe Kubert gives us a powerful political message with his cover to Our Army at War #196? In the fall of 1968 the United States was convulsing with social and political strife. The anti-Vietnam War protests were growing in size and in violence. Am I over reading it when I see an anti-Vietnam War message on this World War II cover?

Covers are allowed to be poster art and Avengers #196 is payday for accepting this, great cover from George Perez.

I’ll add a cover that made me laugh the moment I saw it, Pep Comics #196 has a great sight gag punchline that touched a nerve with me because it reminded me of my buddy’s dad, who’s in his 80s. I think Archie had his shorts up just a bit higher, but not by much.

I always likes Daredevil #196 because that cover sold that book out of my otherwise dead Daredevil bins.

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.
