Covered 365: Day 354

Legion of Super-Heroes #354, DC Comics, December 1987. Artist: Ron Frenz.

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.

Today I get to see off the title Legion of Super-Heroes, the title never gave us tons though I did like the Keith Giffen era. Ron Frenz’s strong cover to Legion #354 is a great send off and deserving of the day.

M.C. Wyman’s cover to Avengers #354 makes me want to put on a pair of gloves, I like it tough.

Walt Simonson’s cover to Thor #354 was part of an epic run he had on Thor, I remember it well but this exercise has made me review each cover and I’m more than impressed.

Carmine Infantino was beyond prolific back in the day and day in and day out he produced quality, I like his cover to Detective Comics #354, I wouldn’t want to be the first one to charge.

  1. I think you give too much weight to “last issue” – that is not relevant in picking the best cover. The Legion cover is probably better than I first thought, but I would put it at least third. The Batman is very reminiscent of the period, but not for me.

    Not much time to look at #355. I think it is Batman’s day, and I will go with the following Detective as the pick. I don’t like cowering heroes but I can accept beaten ones, and the Hooded Hangman is an old-skool Bane for sure. If you want something different you can go with my runner-up of Batman – more conceptual but a bit too kitschy to take the crown. Walt’s wildest dreams will have him gravitating toward’s Incredible Hulk’s rainbow.

  2. Detective, Thor, Legion would be my order! I agree with Chris’s picks for tomorrow… and the rainbow on Hulk reminds Walt if his fever on the disco floor.
    Incidentally, I remember having both the consecutive Detective comics as a kid… and if aged memory serves me right… they both came in one of those prepackaged three comic deals. I had gotten a couple Captain Americas that way as well a few years later.

  3. Yes they are all pretty good…however the eyes in the fingertips of Avengers creeps me out…like watching an old Twilight Zone!
