Pump Up The Volume

I’ve noticed more and more good books becoming available to me locally but they are all being offered at current market or above, not many deals to be had. I’m sensing a lot of people are taking stock of their…

Covered 365: Day 301

Four Color #301, Dell Comics, November 1950. Artist: Un-credited. A fine use of light and dark and the shadows in between on the un-credited cover to Four Color #301, the Zane Grey covers are my favourite Western covers in the…

Covered 365: Day 298

Wonder Woman #298, DC Comics, December 1982. Artist: Frank Miller. Frank Miller’s cover to Wonder Woman #298 is certainly attention-grabbing and wins the day for its shock factor. Kevin Nowlan gives us a stylistic cover to Hulk #298 that I…

Covered 365: Day 263

Uncle Scrooge #263, Walt Disney, February 1992, Artist: Don Rosa. Any one of these would have handily won the day yesterday. I was always a Carl Barks guy until someone years ago showed me a hardcover book celebrating Don Rosa’s…

Covered 365: Day 230

Batman #230, DC Comics, March 1971. Artist: Neal Adams. I’ve always liked Neal Adams’ cover to Batman #230, hard in grade with that black background. Captain America #230 wasn’t far behind, strong cover from Ron Wilson. I’m also digging the…

Covered 365: Day 222

Wonder Woman #222, DC Comics, December 2005. Artist: J.G. Jones. Day 222 will be themed, it belongs to the adversaries squaring off covers lead by J.G. Jones’ striking Wonder Woman #212 (1987 series). Marc Silvestri adds to the theme with…

Covered 365: Day 203

Amazing Spider-Man #203, Marvel Comics, April 1980. Artist: Frank Miller and Jim Mooney. I clearly recall trying to hoard Amazing Spider-Man #203, I thought Dazzler was a character on the rise and a very early appearance embedded in the Amazing…

Covered 365: Day 202

Superman #202, DC Comics, April 2004. Artist: Michael Turner. I found Day 202 to be a bit wanting so I resolved not to pick any of the what I found mediocre standbys. I thought I’d go and highlight a little…

Covered 365: Day 200

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…

Covered 365: Day 195

House of Mystery #195, DC Comics, October 1971. Artist: Bernie Wrightson. Bernie Wrightson lights it up on House of Mystery #195, scary, heavy use of shadow that can trick you on 1st glance but no question this is amazing art.…

Covered 365: Day 192

Famous Funnies #192, Eastern Color, August 1948. Artist: Walt Kelly. Some unnamed commenter likened yesterday’s Four Color #191 to cereal box art, well I for one couldn’t disagree more. Today I throw down Four Color #192, an impossible to dis…
