Blackhawk #269, DC Comics, April 1984, Artist: Dan Spiegle.
A whole crop of palatable covers today, my winner is Dan Spiegle’s cover to Blackhawk #269 for the sheer audacity and perhaps for biting off a bit more than he could chew. Would have loved to see this drawn by Alex Schomburg or Bob Fujitani.
The simplicity and rich colors of Russell Schroeder’s Donald Duck #269 cover draw you in and don’t let you go, great eye candy.
Remember that KISS Marvel Comics Super Special from 1977? When the boys in the band mixed their blood in with the printing ink? Well Jim Aparo obviously drank the Cool Aid and used one of his copies as inspiration for his cover to House of Mystery #269.
Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper were contemporaries of Rosie the Riveter so Jeff Shultz’s homage to Westinghouse’s second most famous employee ever is something too cool for school, great poster art.
Colin MacNeil came close to the truth with his cover to Conan #269, real close.
I know its just a hanging around cover but I like Nick Cardy’s Superman #269
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.
