House of Mystery #261, DC Comics, February 1978, Artist: Mike Kaluta.

Today had 2 strong contenders for the top spot. I should call it a tie. I’ll start with Mike Kaluta’s masterful cover to House of Mystery #261, the imagery is amazing but the skulls on the corn cob put this over the top. You know it’s an amazing cover because you never see it in the HOM bins, why would anybody sell this.

Charles Vess deserves the tie today for his stunning cover to Amazing Spider-Man #261, this is a favourite for many in this part of the run.

Sexual overtones on Nick Cardy’s cover to Superman #261 make it a sought after issue, nice cover too.

I love Jim Mitchell’s use of light and shadows on the cover of Uncle Scrooge #261.

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.
