    So many great covers have been posted, I can't keep them all in my head or even quote them all - Frazetta, Starlin, Kirby, Cardy, the Infantino/Anderson Spectre, Hernandez ....

    That reminds me: is Nick Cardy mainly known for his cover work or did he ever have a long stint on the interiors of a series. Looking at his wiki article, I was thinking the best bet for me would be DC horror anthologies like House of Mystery, etc, in which he seemed to do a fair bit of artwork. And I see there's an Art of Nick Cardy book out as well - anyone seen it?

    I love those Spectre covers but have a sneaking suspicion the stories inside might be a let-down... I should try them sometime, though.

    Starlin was such a great cover and interior artist in the 70s, but I haven't enjoyed his later work nearly as much.
    Cardy had a long career going back to his days in the Eisner shop, working on Lady Luck in the 40s. He did Congo Bill for DC and then in the 60s did a long run on Aquaman. Also work on Teen Titans and Bat Lash. Then in the 70s, publisher Infantino (being a fan of Nick's work) made him his cover guy.

    Lots of other things that Cardy did, but those are some of the high points.

    I'm sorry if I seem a bit repetitious, but Dark Horse in the early to mid-nineties had nothing but masterpieces when it came to its licensed comics:

    As we're on the subject of Cardy, my favourite covers were those he did for Action Comiics.

    I see that the thread has morphed from "Greatest of All Time" into "Covers I like"

    It pretty much did this right at the beginning. Personally, I do feel like there's a difference between covers I happen to like and covers I think deserve to be called the greatest, which is one reason I haven't really posted in this thread. But there's no harm in it really, and people have posted some cool looking covers.
    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    It's too difficult to narrow down my favorites, let alone the greatest anything. Favorite movie, favorite song or album or band, favorite TV show, I'm just not good at picking favorites.

    Sorry, I forgot the big grins. I meant it as a light hearted observation not a criticism. Definitely subjective.
