Favorite Cover Friday #38

Daredevil #182 Cover Artist: Frank Miller Just one of the most gut wrenching emotionally devastating covers of its day.

Favorite Cover Friday #37

Moon Knight #38 Cover Artist: M.W. Kaluta Kaluta is such a great and often times underrated artist. His cover art in comics is absolutely fantastic. Moon Knight is also criminally underrated, have always been a fan and encourage you to check out the recent series.

Favorite Cover Friday #36

Batman/Grendel #1 Cover Artist : Matt Wagner I believe this is the first crossover of a character from Marvel/DC and a character from an independent comic. Two of my favorites together. Good read, but you need to know a little about Grendel to not feel lost in the plot.

Favorite Cover Friday #35

The Spectre #1 Cover Artist: Tom Mandrake Ostrander and Mandrake’s 62 issue run is really good, the definitive representation of the character in my opinion. The cover was also bad ass because it glowed in the dark. Just one of many gimmicky covers that littered the 90’s comics landscape.

Favorite Cover Friday #34

Jonny Quest #5 Cover Artist – Dave Stevens I’m a huge Jonny Quest fan and this run by Comico comics is fantastic. I highly recommend adding this run to your collection.

Favorite Cover Friday #33

Madman Comics #1 Cover Artist – Mike Allred Have always enjoyed Mike Allred’s art style and Madman is such a fun comic to read.

Favorite Cover Friday #32

Teen Titans #14 Cover Artist: Nick Cardy Nick Cardy is one of the great comic book artists of the 60’s and 70’s. His work of the Teen Titans is phenomenal, also check out his run on Aquaman.

Most were stand alone stories where others had been spring boards for new characters and then received their own ongoing titles, and not necessarily as Marvel comics. The first Marvel Graphic Novel I bought was…

Favorite Cover Friday #31

Thor #337 Cover Artist: Walt Simonson I love covers that are interactive and Simonson’s run on Thor is fantastic!
