Best Cover EVER? – Henry Flint

Published On October 14, 2012 | By Richard Bruton | Best Cover EVER?, Comics

Here we go again – another in our series of best cover EVER.

This time it’s Henry Flint‘s turn to pick his one fave comic covers ….. although like us, he’s having a hugely difficult time deciding. So he sent a couple in. But we’re harsh, cruel people here at the FPI Blog, and he got told in no uncertain terms that he’d have to do them one at a time. So expect his other choice in a few months! Flint is, of course, the very talented artist behind some great 2000AD strips, most recently some magnificent episodes of Day Of Chaos in Judge Dredd.

The New Teen Titans Issue 40, 1984, DC Comics. Cover by George Perez.

Can I put down this cover as favourite (of the moment). Can’t say it’s the first but one of the first American comics I bought. And bought simply for the cover and keep reading Titans for another year after.

Short & Sweet!

You can get hold of this issue in Volume 2 of The New Teen Titans Omnibus Editions (and like Henry, I remember it so well as part of a run that made me venture forth into the wilds of DC Comics for the first time).
