Covers of comics that are (or have been) in my collection at one point or another.
New X-Men: First appearance of Dust. (2002)
Nightwing: It’s the start of storyline taking a look at Dick Grayson’s past after he dropped out of college and before joining the New Teen Titans. It’s by Marv Wolfman, so it should feel more important, more canonical than it actually turns out to be. Great Ryan Sook cover. Although he chose to include rat-tail costumed Nightwing over disco-color Nightwing in the reflections. Yikes! (2007)
Wonder Woman: Hippolyta is cast as the Golden Age Wonder Woman, living during the JSA heyday and basically restoring all the “Earth-2” adventures of Wonder Woman. And I was totally okay with it at the time. DC’s heroes are about legacy - and even though this means Diana is not the first Wonder Woman - it still works for me. (1998)
From the never read/never owned file:
Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen: Jack Kirby returns to DC after leaving Marvel setting the stages for his final lasting creations: the Fourth World. (1970)
