  1. I really like Detective Comics # 615. Batman is just a little spot in the background, but despite his lilliputian size he manages to catch the attention of the reader anyway, because of his body being wrapped in darkness, and also because of the yellow logo on his chest violently contrasting with the dark colours surrounding it.
    Then you look under his feet, and you notice an abandoned night club. Night clubs remind me of the noir movies I love so much, so it definitely is an added touch for me.
    You can also see a full moon, a gothic castle, some bats flying away from it… there are so many details that help creating a dark atmosphere in this cover that, each time I take a look at it, I notice something that had passed me by until then. A really, really beautiful cover.
    As for Matt, I pick Daredevil # 11. You know how fond I am of whodunit plots, so the tagline “Who is the organizer?” convinced me to give this cover the gold medal alone.

    • “I really like Detective Comics # 615.”
      A great selection…and the use of the word “lilliputian” is brilliant indeed. I really can’t say anymore as you described it to perfection. All I’ll add is that those white birds from my selection have found there way onto yours creating a connective tissue between the images. Special mention should be made to #611 (another Penguin cover). I love how the image of him shooting Batman is reflected in his monocle. Has the Penguin ever looked as menacing?

      “You know how fond I am of whodunit plots, so the tagline “Who is the organizer?” convinced me to give this cover the gold medal alone.”
      Is he friend or foe? And with a name like the Organizer, what could possibly be his power set? Questions, questions, questions! 🙂

  2. I really like Detective Comics #610 as well, with Batman reflecting about the Penguin at his graveside, its a great cover. Very clever how the creative team put their names on the heasdstones. I think Daredevil #8 is a really good cover featuring Stilt Man.

    • Daredevil #8 was my runner-up. I love the perspective of the entire image and the shock of seeing such an immense foe. This of course was before he became the butt of jokes everywhere including Marvel’s own comics. 🙂
