Laugh #327, Archie Comics, June 1978. Artist: Dan DeCarlo.
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.
I couldn’t pick a winner based on artistic merit today so I picked my favorite of the lot. Dan DeCarlo’s cover to Laugh #327 is so not cool right now but at the same time it is so the truth.
My second pic today is in reverence to our esteemed commentor Chris Meli, Flash Comics #327 drawn by great Carmine Infantino is the comic Chris keeps in the downstairs washroom.
I thought Scott McDaniel’s cover to Daredevil #327 was going to win the day on first look but again, there is something missing on this cover.
Was Manga big in the USA in 1996? Jimmy Cheung’s cover to Iron Man #327 reminds me of those Manga books, Stark loots 11 years old on this cover.
Dan DeCarlo, Archie’s good girl artist.
I give Betty a ten, Meli the hand, a pass on the DD, and give Ironman to the recycling bin (I don’t have a birdcage to line)!
I can’t believe I missed that Flash. Infantino did quite a job with those hands, Six hands is definitely apropos for a Scarlet Speedster. And speaking of hands, it’s convenient that that Archie issue can be held in just one.
#328 picks looking even worse. We are going to have to rely on the funny animals (or the Archies) more and more through the end of the year. Four Color is the only decent cover for tomorrow. Yes there is the popular ASM, but I think it is another McFarlane mess. Walt will probably pick DD for the usual reasons, patterns and colors, but there is nothing there for me.
While they aren’t giant, I will give a shout out to Superman’s Hands of Doom.
I’m not going to ‘pick’ the winner, but I have to say that a cover that makes me want to know more is a winner. Daredevil is one such cover for day 328. It’s sucking me in like it’s sucking in DD and that assailant. Four Color is nice, and ASM is a classic McFarlane cover. Let’s just stop with the Iron Man covers for now. This weird ‘kid-adult’ thing isn’t working for me, nor is the ‘manga style’ on Uncanny X-Men.
JOWA to Flash for the mask under the mask stupidity that I thought was over with that Detective from before. I was wrong.
Geeez Walt…quit this politically correct me too movement stuff. Its OK for guys to admire girls and vice versa and variations there of.
The Archie comics remain classic and collectible. Headlight bondage and good girl comics remain desirable. Please dont turn your back on the human experience 🙁
I love the callout to Chris with those Infantino hands. Good catch, Walter. Carmine was a master illustrator and cover designer, no doubt.
