Covered 365: Day 33

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.

Day 27 – New Adventure Comics #27, Artist – Creig Flessel.

I once owned a nice copy of this, way back in the day when I didn’t really know what I had.

I had never seen this cover before I made my list of #33s. It is the comic bookiest and I heartily agree.

After doing my review of #35s, I think that thirty five is a lucky number. There are really a lot of great covers to choose from. and I couldn’t narrow it down to five, so I am listing six:

Attack
Exciting
Our Fighting Forces
Planet
Tales from the Crypt
Vault of Horror

Also not great covers but very funny ones:

Rex the Wonder Dog
Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen

I continue to love this exercise because it is forcing me to look at so many covers and thereby sensitizing me to certain themes:

– Following yesterday’s pick: The Atom cover run mostly (all?) by Kane is extraordinary. Big, colorful, dynamic – perfect 60s pop art pieces. There were some recent sales of very high grade copies at eye-popping prices, I think because a select few realize how much of a standout this run is.

– Nobody cares about Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, but the 1960s-70s run of these until Kirby took over was some of the craziest stuff ever published. Sure there were intentional parody comics and magazines, but SPJO was ostensibly within the continuity, with one ridiculous scenario after the other. I doubt these books are ever going to move much, but I would love to have a really well done SPJO omnibus to appreciate all of these covers and stories in their full glory.
