Jimmy Olsen #98 – DC Comics, December 1966 – Artist: Curt Swan.

I can just picture the Marvel staff meeting in December 1966 – “look at these numbers people, we must be doing something right, lets keep up the good work”, or something like that. Stan would have been half right with that pep talk.

This is one of my all time favorite covers, I had a copy hanging in the office for years.

Jimmy Olsen was my second pick actually. I wanted to go with A-1 #98 but since the cover says Undercover Girl #6 I didn’t want to cheat. Strong contenders included Modern #98, Fables #98, 100 Bullets and that great cover to Laugh #98.

Sweethearts #98 is my 1st pick that will bring you to a good CRY (Charlton Romance Yearning). I won’t do these every time, just once in a while as a cover hits me.

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.
