Covered 365: Day 341

Daredevil #341, Marvel Comics, June 1995, Artist: Bill Sienkiewicz

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.

Good pep talk from Chris yesterday in the comments, we’re down to the last 25 covers and we need to stay focused, work hard to find interesting things, ask good questions and learn something.

Bill Sienkiewicz’s cover to Daredevil #441 got my vote for its jet black background and for what I believe is one of the best cover depictions of Kingpin – ever.

I forget who but a while ago someone mentioned in the comments the effective use of panels on a cover. Carmine Infantino used a 3 panel technique with nice effect on his cover for Detective #441.

JOWA? I’m not sure but the 1st thing I thought of when I saw Curt Swam’s cover to Action Comics #341 was – I wish this scene was in a bowling alley.

While Flash is more bizarre, Action is funnier so I can accept it as the JOWA. I think you actually have to work to understand that they _aren’t_ throwing bowling balls. That weird “fingerprints verified!” inset clinches the deal.

For #342 I am going with Action because this has it all from a comic book perspective – big superhero, sci-fi, “Earth is Doomed!”, beautiful colors and blacks. I could understand if you picked the close second Four Color, as you seem to prefer the blue to black. I like the similar Thor and Uncle Scrooge – Thor is more a poster but I like the colors more. I want to like the Hulk but McFarlane’s McFarlanism is just too much.

Greek chorus award to Adventure.

JOWA to Detective’s Robin Gang. One is more than enough.

Well… I am surprised Thor didn’t make the cut…I prefer it to the DD as top billing for the day.

The Action inspired the battle in Superman III.
