Covered 365: Day 25

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.

Day 25 – Witches Tales, Artist – Howard Nostrand.

Witches Tales #25 is part of the old guard of classic pre code horror covers, it’s been a big deal for a long time. I’ve been lucky enough to own a few of these but it has to be at least 15 years since the last one.

Walt, love your choice here. This would have been my choice as well. What a scarce book this one seems to be. Great pick. I DO like Fantastic Four as well for this number. Classic Thing vs. Hulk cover.

Glad to see that I finally picked a winner. I considered FF #25 but I see a couple of problems which are shared by many Kirby covers and have been preventing me from picking these:

– The characters are too small. Kirby works as if his cover art is going to be enlarged, not reduced.

– There is too much else going on, lots of folks somewhat transfixed with shocked expressions, rubble falling, etc.

Compare to FF #112 and tell me that you don’t agree.

I haven’t gotten ahead of the game much today but I will move to future days as I have time to review. My #26s:

Marvel Mystery
My Secret Love
Phantom Stranger
Rangers
Sensation

Trying to get ahead of the game while I watch an uninspiring auction.

Hard to even come up with five #27s that I would really recommend. My choices:

Captain America Comics
Detective [maybe not really a great cover, but I have to include it]
Daredevil Comics
Whiz
Witching Hour

Captain America Comics
Catman
Exciting
Moon Knight
Strange Tales

A great choice and a well known PCH cover. Some good choices for #26 would be Captain Aero Comics, Ranger Comics, Planet Comics, Pep Comics, Hit Comics, and Captain Marvel Adventures.
