Covered 365: Day 222

Wonder Woman #222, DC Comics, December 2005. Artist: J.G. Jones.

Day 222 will be themed, it belongs to the adversaries squaring off covers lead by J.G. Jones’ striking Wonder Woman #212 (1987 series).

Marc Silvestri adds to the theme with is X-Men #222 cover that always flies out of the bins.

I know you guys won’t like it but it fits in with the theme and I think McFarlane riffing on McFarlane is fair game especially when he does a better job the second time around ala Spawn #222.

Let’s break the spell with a nice Joe Kubert Tarzan #222 effort that reminds me of Frazetta.

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. Day 222 is a sad day for covers. At least put in Dell’s Room 222 comic in the mix. Also, Batman 222 with the Beatles singing Happy Birthday to dear Alfred inside.

  2. I vote the Kubert! WW is like BDSM or something else unpleasant … not sure whats going on with the face on Logans foe …did the artist give up after drawing Wolverine..finally Spawn and the bull…meh….not a huge McFarlane fan…he is good…just not THAT good…I think over rated is the term I am looking for.

  3. Leaving out Batman is surely an error – this is a popular back issue not only because of the Beatles, but also because of the great Adams cover.

    I echo some of Gerald’s comments. I see the critique about the WW and that Sabretooth face is terrible. Agree that “meh” is the word for Spawn/McFarlane.

    Nothing really extraordinary for #223. I’ll bet that you are going to choose Avengers because it was a Spotlight, but as it is an Atom/Hawkman theft (and an inferior one at that), I can only say “good”. I am going to go with Tarzan again as Kubert really delivered with this run. Great art/composition/action. After saying “meh” to McFarlane I have to go with Marvel Tales as the runner-up – a very cool big Spider-Man. I will give a nod to Uncanny X-Men as well, although this kind of thing was done much better in the 1940s by Jumbo/Jungle.

  4. That’s a pretty racy WW cover even though the Cat is furred. WW has twigs for wrists. Tarzan appeals the most today.
