Covers of comics that are (or have been) in my collection at one point or another.
#181 part 1
Who knew #181 would be so important edition?
Avengers: I’m not sure I would call this issue iconic but it definitely is a classic moment in Avengers history for a number of reasons: The cover, the limiting of the team roster, including Falcon purely for quota purposes, the beginnings of the true origins of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, even the first appearance of future Ant-Man Scott Lang. (1979)
Brave and the Bold: Purchased solely for the Hawk and Dove appearance. I try and collect Teen Titans and TT-related character appearances whenever I see them pop up in other titles. (1981)
Daredevil: Last Hand. Arguably the most iconic issue of Daredevil ever. When I first read the Frank Miller run - way after it was actually released - I was amazed how much of a stand alone issue this was from what came before. Yes, it has threads from previous stories, etc, but it really is its own issue. Powerful, brutal for 1982 standards, and, much like the Death of Gwen Stacy or the Dark Phoenix Saga, it casts a long shadow over the title for decades. (1982)
Green Lantern: Hal Jordan gives up being Green Lantern - at least until the Crisis… ends. (1984)
