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.

Detective Comics #73 – DC Comics, March 1943 – Artist: Bob Kane with Jerry Robinson inks.

Detecive Comics #73 is a gem that shines among a sea of great Joker covers of this era. This is the only Scarecrow cover of the Golden Age.

  1. Great choice and the deserving “winner” for cover of the day. The first string Batman villains were always bigger than life, and this cover exemplifies that idea. This cover may also have faced some of the toughest competition of any other day, including other Batman villains like the Joker in Batman #73, and a great Adam Hughes Catwoman #73 cover. I have always loved Amazing Spider-Man #73 which captures Spidey as a bullied teenager, and FF #73 with a classic Marvel “misunderstanding” hero battle cover. The Creeper cover of Showcase #73 is also a standout.
