Covered 365: Day 301

Four Color #301, Dell Comics, November 1950. Artist: Un-credited.

A fine use of light and dark and the shadows in between on the un-credited cover to Four Color #301, the Zane Grey covers are my favourite Western covers in the Four Color run.

Lee Weeks gives us a very strong rooftop composition on the cover of Daredevil #301, the character stance/timing seems a fraction off but I like what Lee went for here.

Ed Hannigan’s cover to Wonder Woman #301 makes it just for its jarring factor, this cover certainly grabs your attention.

Batman holding a gun on the cover of a Batman comic is an instant collectible, Jim Aparo gives us one to want on the cover of Batman #301.

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.

  1. Fat and sugar do it every time Klaus. The Four Color reminds me of Treasure of the Sierra Madre for some reason. Frankly the Owl cover is better then his very first appearance cover! Batman with a gun… please…..

  2. The pick is a nice piece of art but as usual I don’t see it as a comic book cover. You got me to go for those Gollub covers but I am still resistant. I get you on the DD so see below – I think the main problem is the stiffness of DD, quite out of character for an acrobat. No bid on the WW or the Batman – they aren’t awful but they aren’t exceptional.

    For tomorrow just a few good ones. I have to go with Iron Man – nothing unusual here but it’s really what I want out of a comic book cover. DD is the runner up with a much better cover than today’s mention. World’s Finest is another great punch-out, but points off for Hannigan basically appropriating the Adams art from the reprint story within (which is one of my favorite World’s Finest stories). Honorable mention to Kaluta’s really creepy circus folks on House of Mystery.
