Four Color #204, Eastern Color, December 1948. Artist: Paul Norris.

Blame that gorgeous blue fade. Before anyone gives me any flack have a look at the covers below and tell me you wouldn’t want the Four Color #204 at the top of the pile. Paul Norris delivers that crystal clear and crisp Sci-Fi that I love.

I missed it but saw in the comments yesterday Chris calling out Avengers #204, had a look and loved it! Good eye Chris (sometimes).

House of Mystery #204 simply because I don’t think you can find a more Wrightson-esque monster anywhere.

Jim Lee’s cover to Superman #204 is one of the definitive Superman poses, it was like an updating of a standard.

Joe Kubert’s little girl on the cover of Unexpected #204 is 100 times scarier than the demon behind her.

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.
