Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself -- Readers' Version


Doug: Around 10 days ago we had some fun with "face-off" covers. Today we're sampling our readers' suggestions. Thanks to all those who participated!

The cover that started me on the X-Men.

. . . And I see it was on your original post 10 days back . . .

I finally got to read JLA #200 a couple weeks ago--great one! Super lineup of artists as you can see from the back cover, with Perez drawing here and there throughout. I was a JLA fan but mostly during the earlier Dillin era, and somehow missed this blockbuster until now.

Garrett, better late than never!
JLA #200 has always been one of my very favorite giant DC issues, together with Showcase #100 and Superman #400. There's so much awesomeness squeezed between that equally awesome wrap-around cover.
When I got back into comics some years ago, that was one of the first single issues I made it a point to re-acquire.

It's only now that I have the time to seek out a couple of covers that I remember fondly. First is the Freedom Fighters. A month after the Invaders cover featured on the post today, the Freedom Fighters took on The Crusaders! (If you haven't read this story, a quartet of Marvel writers, Roy, Marv, Len, Archie, are turned into ersatz versions of Captain America, Bucky, Human Torch, Toro, and Sub-Mariner.) http://www.dcindexes.com/features/database.php?site=dc&pagetype=comic&id=11730
Here's All-Star Comics; the original JSA vs. the current team. http://www.dcindexes.com/features/database.php?site=dc&pagetype=comic&id=2310
Finally, here's a curve ball. The Super Friends! Lined up against some monster types, but not all villains. http://www.dcindexes.com/features/database.php?site=dc&pagetype=comic&id=26699
I love looking at these things!

I remember those issues of Freedom Figthers, WardHillTerry. I got that the Crusaders were a spoof of the Invaders, but I didn't pick up on the bit about the Marve writers.
