Covered 365: Day 202

Superman #202, DC Comics, April 2004. Artist: Michael Turner.

I found Day 202 to be a bit wanting so I resolved not to pick any of the what I found mediocre standbys. I thought I’d go and highlight a little stretch of 2004 that produced 3 covers, with a certain related focus, worth showcasing.

Michael Turner developed a loyal following before his untimely death in 2008. Superman #202 (1987 series) showcases his style quite well.

In May 2004 J. G. Jones gives us what we want in a beautiful painted cover to Wonder Woman #202 (1987 series).

I thought I’d treat us to Betty and Veronica #202 just to draw attention to the heated attention certain versions of the US flag is getting down in the good ole US of A. I for one like this version.

And yes, Blackhawk #202 does deserve the JOWA for its age shaming (is that a thing?) 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.

  1. Well… the Superman leaves me cold! It has some if the manga look that creeped into mainstream comics in the 1990’s that I was never fond of… everyone was doing it and none of it I liked!

    Now that Wonder Woman is fantastic!! Its got elements of Mad parody, real life, and tabloid look that make it truly a great cover!

    The Archie would have been better with a different artist… concept is great but I have seen better Betty and Veronica renditions from my decidedly male perspective!

  2. I agree with Gerald on Superman. I enjoyed a lot of Turner’s work but this doesn’t grab me.

    The Wonder Woman doesn’t live up to the Hughes run but it’s good.

    I almost picked the Betty and Veronica. A a red blooded non-un-American this is definitely my kind of flag as well.

    Nothing truly great for #203 but I will pick Conan. Batman, Flash, House of Mystery the runners-up. Wonder Woman continues the stretch of covers that I don’t want to admit are intriguing.
