Batman #296, DC Comics, February 1978. Artist: Sal Amendola.

I’m sure I telegraphed this pic through an old Undervalued Spotlight but I really do think Sal Amendola’s stylish cover to Batman #296 wins the day.

I had to pick Dick Dillin’s cover to Detective Comics #296 because of the rainbows theme, and because I enjoy typing out the name Dick Dillin.

I like Bill Sienkiewicz’s Hulk on the cover to Hulk #296, what I don’t like is looking at Rom’s ass.

It was deja vu all over again when I saw Keith Giffen’s cover to Legion of Superheroes #296, I saw it and I thought – hey that’s Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 by George Perez, then when I saw Crisis #7 I thought – hey that’s X-Men #136 by John Byrne. I did a little more digging and saw that this was 1st done by Bob Oksner on Lois Lane #128 back in 1972. I think Perez just traced over Byrne’s cover!!

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.
