Strange Adventures #197, DC Comics, February 1967. Artist: Carmine Infantino.

Carmine Infantino is slowly piling up cover of the day honors and may end up the overall winner at this rate (I have to figure out a time-effective way to do a Top 10 artist tally when this is all over but first I’ll have to see what the bookies in Vegas have as lines then perhaps tweak my picks towards a long shot…). Oh yeah, Infantino gives us a stand out with Strange Adventures #197.

I wasn’t sure why I was drawn to Superboy #197 but then I saw that it was drawn by the great Nick Cardy.

I’m with commentor Chris on Gil Kane’s run on Kid Colt, this is art on a very high level, great action scene.

Seeing Four Color #197 triggered another memory, I once owned a 9.0 ish copy but it had quite a large dust shadow along the right margin which just killed the yellow on the cover, I had a tough time finding a buyer for that one.

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.
