Covered 365: Day 305

Captain America #305, Marvel Comics, March 1985. Artist: Paul Neary.

I thought Day #305 was so so, the best of the bunch for me was Paul Neary’s Captain America #305 cover.

Todd McFarlane continues to impress with a solid cover for Amazing Spider-Man #305.

Big hug moment on Keith Hopgood’s cover to Iron Man #305, its always to see the boys get along.

Keith Pollard gives us another quality inning with his cover to Thor #305.

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. I would have listed them as Hulk, Thor, Spidey ( although I am still trying to figure out what all the purple is) and last Cap. Not a bad grouping in a day with few possibilities!

  2. Agree with Gerald – not a bad group given the limited selection. And the HULK #305 cover was my favorite as well.

  3. I missed commenting yesterday for various reasons. I generally wouldn’t have picked the above. I probably would have gone with DD. I think McNiven’s Wolverine variant is the best art, but just runner up as a crouching around cover. I can accept Iron Man as another runner up.

    Action #305 – another cover relevant to the present situation – did Bendis read it?

    WF rips off Steranko’s Nick Fury.

    A really strong JOWA in Flash, too bad you didn’t put that one on display.

    #306 is an easy double-up pick/JOWA in Wolverine. Totally unique. Runners up: Captain America, Hulk, Uncle Scrooge.

    You really should treat yourself to the sight (?) of Moldoff’s invisible robots on Detective.

  4. The Moldoff is a great JOWA Chris… the Wolverine is just bad period. If I was the publisher some editors head would look like the Wolverines for publishing something that bad!

  5. Leaking oil here, as the covered 365 format really limits the choices in the higher numbers. Perhaps picking covers published on a particular month would have kept the field interesting with potentially thousands of more covers to choose from each day ….and would have also captured better collecting themes such as Christmas, Easter, Remembrance day, unique to each month

  6. On the bright side Dave, there is less to argue for and more to argue against. However, I like your idea and doing so it would include comics numbered higher then 365. My question is do all comics have a month indicated and I do remember some as a kid that spanned two months!

  7. True Gerald….bi monthly and even quarterly…but at least they would qualify for one of the seasons
