Marvel Tales #226, Marvel Comics, August 1989. Artist: Todd McFarlane.

It came down to Batman #226 and Marvel Tales #226, Neal Adams versus Todd McFarlane. The beef I have with both covers is that the secondary characters suck but Spidey and Bats get standout renderings. It was honestly a toss-up but I gave it to Todd for effort, you know how long he must have spent on those webs.

This kid David Yardin has earned a new fan, he brings great use of colour and light to each new cover of X-Factor I’m seeing.

OK the JOWA has to go to the Flaming Fist!

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.
