My Favourite Covers
Okay, so our journey through the past is complete for this week but which covers reign supreme? For Detective Comics, the crown goes to: Detective Comics #195. What is going on here? If the bold proclamation “From out of the past, a stranger came to shock Gotham City, claiming he was–‘the original Batman'” doesn’t grab your interest than Batman’s statement of “he has a right to wear that uniform!” certainly will. Who is he? Why does Batman feel that way? This cover raises so many questions that I want to track down the issue and open it up for answers. For Amazing Spider-Man, the title goes to: Amazing Spider-Man #169. The look of devilish joy on J. Jonah Jameson’s face is great as he eagerly announces “Peter Parker, I know you’re Spider-Man–and I have the photos to prove it”. Peter Parker is completely floored by the news as is the reader. The main question that comes to my mind is also splashed on the page: “How do these pictures reveal Spidey’s secret identity?” My thoughts exactly as Spider-Man and Peter are in the same picture together. What else does Jonah have? The issue promises to answer that lingering question and all you have to do is plunk down 30 cents to find out. One thing is for sure, Jonah is confident he has him this time! How’s Spider-Man going to get out of this one? Another compelling reason to check out the issue!
So that’s it for this week. Agree/Disagree? Which covers are your personal favourites from this week? Comment below!
