Collector for the sheer passion, as comics have had such an impact on my life. 3rd time around doing so and by far the greatest experience of them all. Lover of Silver Age, but have come around to bronze and dabble in the rest.
They say you can't judge a book by it's cover...but in the comic collecting world, a cover may be the sole reason for making a purchase.
There have been plenty of purchases made, because I was moved in some way by the cover. Covers are works of art. Some covers may impact the majority of fans or collectors, and some may just influence a small segment.
What are some comic covers that really spoke to you, so much that you just had to purchase them? I would love to hear about it from anyone that would like to share, or submit photos for all to see. What did you like about it, what prompted the purchase?
One book that I ran across in a search last year was Batman #230. The cover is so striking. Early 70's Giordano Batman popping right off the cityscape cover with the Red beret wearing Black Panthers, on motorcycles...even flashing the black power fist symbol.
When I stumbled upon this cover in my searches, I knew I had to have it in my collection.
Any great covers/pics/stories behind the reasons are encouraged and welcome!
