I'm with Gil -- FF#249 and the companion piece Superman # 8 are my all time favorite Byrne covers.

My brother said "read the comic stupid"

Sounds reasonable, but what a lot of people don't realize is a good cover can leave you transfixed and reason is out the window at that point.

Some covers are so good you don't even need to read the comic! The cover tells the whole story. I have a lot of comics like that. And it's not just because I don't like to read that much.

I always liked this one. One of my favorites.
It's a good Spidey.

We have done this before; this must be the 3rd time I have posted this one.
And I certainly dont mind.



I hope to have this as a recreation some day.

I traded the original of that for a DICK TRACY Sunday. One of the last ones
Chester Gould himself actually worked on.

I'd have to say "The Masque of Doom" just because even to this day I have no friggin' idea how he made it look so realistic.
