Covered 365: Day 321

Amazing Spider-Man #300, Marvel Comics, May 1988. Artist: Todd McFarlane. Day 300!! Took a while but we’re at the last landmark issue of this exercise. There have been soft days for sure but surprisingly fewer than I expected. Let’s hope…

Covered 365: Day 287

Hellblazer #287, DC Comics, February 2012. Artist: Simon Bisley. Striking cover from Simon Bisley on Hellblazer #212, Hellblazer covers are either hit or miss for me, this one is definitely a hit. Mike Zeck! He’s been the gold standard here…

Covered 365: Day 276

Action Comics #276, DC Comics, May 1961, Artist: Curt Swan. Curt Swan wins the day with his very busy cover to Action Comics #276, it’s 1961 and doesn’t Supergirl look a little like Marilyn Monroe? I’m not sure why I…
