House Of Mystery #211, DC, February 1973. Artist: Bernie Wrightson.
About 100 days ago I commented that we were heading into Cole Country (L.B. Cole). I didn’t want one artist to hijack the post so I excluded his covers for a bit just for variety sake. Luckily for all of us, the Covers project has morphed into multiple covers so I get to post each Frazetta cover somewhere in the post. Still, I’ve always planned to do the same for this Frazetta patch as I did to the Cole patch and go with 4 covers as the daily winners. I have 2 left.
Bernie Wrightson does great comic book covers, take a look at House of Mystery #211. I love the light through the trees effect.
While we’re on the Frazetta run we might as well add Ron Wagner’s nice homage to one of Frank’s seminal Conan paintings, the Frost Giants.
I dig the World’s Finest #211 by Neal Adams, you get the two big DC characters big and shiny twice on the cover and they are nicely rendered by Neal Adams and you get a jet black cover. And what on earth is going on? Batman flying? Superman not?
Frank Frazetta’s cover to Famous Funnies #211 is beyond classic but again for the sake of fairness I’m not giving him the whole run.
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.
