This Wednesday, fans will find an innovative, historic and just plain fun collection waiting for them when they step into their comic shops.
Did you think we’d stop at just one?
We liked the idea of polling creators on their favorite covers so much – and based on their response, they liked it, too – we decided to expand the question a bit: What’s your favorite DC Comics storyline of all time?
Geoff: Anyone see FRINGE last night? If you did, or if you’ve read this blog this week, you saw the RED LANTERN/RED ARROW cover. And maybe the bizarre SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL RETURNS in the style of Frank Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS. Or the infamous cover to CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7, but Supergirl’s holding Superman.
And we saved a good one for Friday, folks.
Frank Harry’s cover to ALL STAR COMICS #16 puts the spotlight squarely on some of the key characters of the early DCU – specifically, the Justice Society of America. The first band of masked men tasked with keeping the world safe. And wow, does that cover have a lot of characters on it, huh?
This time, with more Joker!
As far as iconic covers featuring the Clown Prince of Crime go, few can compare with Jerry Robinson’s DETECTIVE COMICS #69 cover, with a looming Joker hovering over the Dynamic Duo. Let’s take a look, shall we?
We’ll have a full preview of the third issue of BRIGHTEST DAY soon enough, but in the meantime, why not spend a few minutes eyeing these two lovely covers, courtesy of artists David Finch and Ivan Reis on the variant?
