Covered 365: Day 220

Daredevil #220, Marvel Comics, July 1985. Artist: David Mazzucchelli. I really like David Mazzucchelli’s cover to Daredevil #220. There are two effects he’s going for here with the haziness of the light in the fog and then the fog itself.…

Covered 365: Day 218

Strange Adventures #218, DC Comics, June 1969. Artist: Neal Adams. I love the Neal Adams cover to Strange Adventures #218, Adams’ take on 217 fell short with too much shading but the almost psychedelic #218 looks great. Ernie Chan does…

Covered 365: Day 199

Wonder Woman #199, DC Comics, April 1972. Artist: Jeff Jones. Jeff Jones’ cover to Wonder Woman #199 is scary good, I know Jones likes to channel Frazetta but he owns this classic. Carmine Infantino’s Superman #199 is a worthy winner…
