Batman #227, DC Comics, December 1970. Artist: Neal Adams.

Call it a safe pick if you will but Neal Adams gave us a great cover on Batman #227, of course, it’s an homage but I’ve featured those before. Batman #227 has been coveted since I’ve been in the hobby.

OK no yelling but if we can have an homage to Detective #31 then we can have Spawn #227, an homage to Amazing Spider-Man #300. Todd McFarlane sure knows how to get your attention.

Thanks to Chris for pointing out the March of Comics #227 in yesterday’s comments, I missed it because of the way I load my search parameters on comics.org. So easy to fall in love with this cover.

Let’s ride the nostalgia for one more and celebrate Four Color #227, an explosion on random patchwork colours that are nicely reigned in by the dwarfs. I see my buddy Dave Mackay at bottom right, and could that be Chris top left?

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.
