Retroactive: Detective Comics 1946 & Amazing Spider-Man 1970

In Retroactive I’ll take you on a visual comic cover tour of the past covering all the covers for a particular series. Each entry will cover an entire year and I’ll always have one comic from DC and one comic from Marvel. At the end of each edition of Retroactive I’ll select my overall favourite cover for that year for each series. Last time on Retroactive we covered Detective Comics 1945 and Amazing Spider-Man 1969. If you need a refresher, just click HERE. Below you’ll find the two series that I’m currently covering. Click on that specific logo to be instantly taken directly to that series. The last section is reserved for my Top Picks from each year. Click the logo or travel to the third page to view them.

  1. My favorite Batman cover is Detective Comics # 115, because it raises a lot of interesting questions. Why is that man living in a glass house? Why are Batman and Robin so angry with an apparently harmless little old man? And that phone, it’s been put there just to fill the blank, or it has a greater importance?
    As for Spidey, from now on I will not consider the covers with the Kingpin anymore, because otherwise my picks would be too expected. So, apart from ASM # 84 and # 85, my favorite cover is ASM # 80, because it really reminds me of one of my favorite covers ever: http://marvel.wikia.com/Peter_Parker,_The_Spectacular_Spider-Man_Vol_1_48.
    I’m very fond of this issue because it’s one of the first comics I’ve ever read, and, when I read it, it was the first time I saw death in comics. Of course it was a fake death, Spider Man didn’t die in that issue, but at that time I was a very little child that could barely read, so, when I saw Spider Man hit by a bullet, I did believe he had died, and it was a true shock. Luckily, the following month Spider Man was alive and kicking, and I was happy again. : )

      All great questions though these Batman covers seem to be getting sillier as we progress onwards.

      That was an awesome cover.

      “I’m very fond of this issue because it’s one of the first comics I’ve ever read”
      First comic I ever read was a Canadian release of Spider-Man talking about the dangers of drugs. The villain in it was Electro and he has always been a favourite villain of mine ever since. Thanks for sharing your first experience.
