Retroactive: Detective Comics 1970 & Amazing Spider-Man 1994

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 1969 and Amazing Spider-Man 1993. 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 # 400. A very detailed background, amazing light effects (both on Man – Bat’s body and on the skyscrapers), a very well drawn cowl… this cover is so beautiful.
    As for Spidey, I’m wavering between ASM Annual # 28 and ASM # 396, simply because both of them show 2 characters I’m deeply fond of. I like Daredevil more than Carnage, but I hate the outfit Matt used to wear in the 90s, so I give the gold medal to the annual. : )

    • DC #400 is a great cover as is #402 which was my runner-up this week. Another instance of great lighting effects and a moody atmosphere that projects a real horror vibe atmosphere.

      On ASMA#28, Spidey’s punch looks like its going to leap off the page! Also, that Daredevil suit is pretty strange. Somehow I remember something about him faking his death and pretending he was a new Daredevil? Or something like that…

      Thanks, as always, for sharing your selections!
