Superman #201, DC Comics, November 1967. Artist: Curt Swan.

Does Superman #201 look familiar? Kind of? How about the caption “Clark Kent Abandons Superman. Kurt Swan must have really liked Amazing Spider-Man #50 that came out just a few months before because I think this is a clean swipe.

How do you sell Spider-Man comics? Put Spidey, Venom and Carnage on the cover and if you’re still not sure then add Black Cat. Spectacular Spider-Man #201 by Sal Buscema is part of the super fun to collect Maximum Carnage arc.

Thor #201 is a great battle cover helped by the picture frame template that Marvel did so well in the early 70s, the jet black background just adds to the desirability.

Look at how good the Walt Kelly art is on Four Color #201, color scheme is fantastic and I love the left margin, enough effort there to fill 3 covers.

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.
