Detective Comics #335, DC Comics, January 1965. Artist: Carmine Infantino.
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.
Gulp! December 1st, Day 335, we’re heading into the stretch run and I can only think of a few default picks over the last 31 days but I’m not going to look forward at all, a day or two ahead at most just because I’m still holding out hope that there will be some real surprising winners coming our way.
Day 335 was tough, I really like the way Carmine Infantino drew Batman on the cover of Detective Comics #335, great motion and frozen in a unique stance, I only with the Batman figure could have been bigger and more centred.
I was initially gonna give today’s crown to Batman #335, I’m usually a big Jim Aparo fan but I think he was off with the Batman anatomy, Ra’s Al Ghul looks great though.
Steve Geiger’s cover to Hulk #335 certainly gets your attention, it gives me a similar feel to the Daredevil #239 cover I features way back.
Interesting they published The Hulk with no word balloons or captions. Its just okay, the girl is nicely drawn and it makes you ask why id the Hulk snarling at her? But I hear you that the selection is getting tougher.
Could still have fun with JOWAs, must be some goodies to play with…hint, hint.
You are right about Aparo’s Batman anatomy. Reminds me of the tall, slender actor that played Tarzan on TV 1966-68, Ron Ely. Just not strong enough looking. I never warmed up to him. He was all chest, like an olympic swimmer. I had forgotten, but he also played Doc Savage in 1975.
The Detective cover by Infantino is decent…the talking face coming off the wall is a bit strange, and the thugs, really? They are all young, handsome, and in suits and ties? REALLY? But I do like Batman’s figure, it’s pure Infantino and great.
I’m glad that my pick made it, I think it’s worthy. The others are just okay.
Tomorrow about the bleakest day yet. I am going with Sgt. Rock as both the pick and the JOWA. Fabulous Kubert art for a totally weird concept.
That creepy guy on the Hulk cover is grinning because he can see right up the woman’s dress.
