Covers of comics that are (or have been) in my collection at one point or another.
Cerebus: The Roach turns into Swoon - a parody of Vertigo’s Sandman. (1992)
Conan: Sideboob and asscheeks cover by Armando Gil. Heads would asplode today. (1984)
Fantastic Four: George Perez does his first F4 interiors. This issue is the first appearance of Frankie Raye who, years later during the Byrne run, would turn into the Galactus Herald known as Nova. This, and the next issue, also features the return of 50s Atlas hero Marvel Boy and his Quantum Bands. Called Crusader in this two-part story, he seemingly perishes and his Bands would eventually wind up in the hands of the hero known as Quasar. Agents of Atlas would later retcon that Crusader wasn’t the original Marvel Boy and that he was still alive and well. And, to make it all confusing, this has nothing to do with Grant Morrison and JG Jones’ amazing version of Marvel Boy. And to think Marvel says its continuity is not confusing. Sheesssssh. (1975)
Marvel Tales (1984)
Superman: Lex Luthor is about to become the President of the United States! (2001)
Wonder Woman: It’s the start of the Phil Jimenez run. The first four issues cleverly mix and match the cast of WW counterpointed against the cast of Batman. For example: Wonder Woman/Batman, Donna Troy/Nightwing, Tim Drake/Cassie Sandsmark, Artemis/Huntress - even the villains: Phobos the God of Fear/Scarecrow, Deimos the God of Terror/Joker, etc etc etc. It was an interesting play on identities at the start of what would be an interesting run on the title, all with a loving tribute to George Perez in art and story. One of Jimenez’ strongest works. (2001)
