Covers of comics that are (or have been) in my collection at one point or another.
Daredevil: This is the first issue of DD I pulled off the shelf myself at the time of its initial release. I forgot that Black Widow was part of this issue as well. I liked DD back then. It’s a character that I keep on the - no pun intended - radar to see if I’m interested enough to jump back in to read. Usually with the big guns or stories. Born Again. Fall from Grace. Kevin Smith. Ed Brubaker. I haven’t tried out the latest incarnation and I really should. (1984)
Flash: There it is. Michael Turner’s first cover on the title. It’s the issue that brought me back to Flash at the time. Mostly because I knew Howard Porter was going to join the book as regular artist. But also that cover. It stood out on the shelves and screamed look at me! Sure the anatomy is a bit wonky - but I discovered at a past San Diego Comic Con that there are definitely people out there that look like a Turner drawing come to life. Long torsos, thin waists, long legs. Don’t let the detractors fool you - people come in all shapes and sizes. I think a lot of what makes this cover so eye-catching is the coloring and lightning bolt. Good stuff. (2004)
Green Lantern Corps: This was the final issue of GL/GLC that I picked up at the time of its release. I would get out of comics for a few years around the time of Millennium. So I’m not sure why I stopped picking this title up for another few years. Could be that, as much as I liked the change from a solo book to a team-up book, it didn’t hold my interest. (1986)
Justice League of America: Crisis on Earth-Prime begins! Awesome Perez cover. Crime Syndicate! All-Star Squadron! Earth-2! I didn’t pick this up at the time of release, but I quickly added it to my collection once I knew Perez did JLA covers and interiors. Fun five part story. (1982)
Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes (1975)
Uncanny X-Men: The ending of this issue needs only one word to define it: SNIKT! (1986)
