Covered 365: Day 311

Hulk #311, Marvel Comics, September 1985. Artist: Mike Mignola.

A classic comic book cover scene, albeit with role reversal, you can really see Mike Mignola’s Hellboy art style in the skulls on the eye catching cover of Hulk #311.

Todd McFarlane continuing to lay the groundwork for an empire with his cool Mysterio cover for Amazing Spider-Man #311.

I can’t get my mind out of the gutter thank’s to Ralph Heimdahl’s cover to Four Color #311 so I thought I’d try to drag some of you down here with me. Sometimes its best not to look.

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. The alternative cover blurb for the Four Color comic should read ‘When Pigs Fly!’

  2. Excellent choice, Walt. That is a really fabulous Mignola cover on HULK #311.

    I am a fan of Batman #311, and fully expected it to be the choice. But the HULK cover is just better and deserves the accolade.

    I also like Captain America #311, and was surprised to see that it was not included in the contenders list since it dove tailed nicely with one of the recent undervalued spotlights – FF #28.

    Although I am McFarlane (and Spidey) fan, ASM #311 has never had much appeal – maybe it is the distorted view of Spidey(particularly his hands) in Mysterio’s helmet.

    As to the Porky Pig cover – despite Walt’s invitation I am declining to take that off color Four Color journey with him.

  3. I like all these covers… however I guess I must be to ignorant to pick up on Walt’s reference to the Four Color. Does it have to do with Porky Pigs preference to perpetually performing pant less?

  4. Gerald, it’s the other pig’s visual aim that Walt is referring to. That should be more than enough to ‘get’ the reference, so I will say no more.

  5. Oh… duh!!! Thanks C.K….. didn’t even occur to me the other pig was getting a wink back!
