Cover Of The Day 9/25/14
Today’s cover has us going all the way back to 1969 during the X-Men’s initial run and classic first lineup in issue #58. The art chores were performed by the legendary Neal Adams that gives the world a first glance at the character of Havok. While I always thought Havok’s costume was a striking design this is a unique way to show it off. Check out how his helmet peaks over the X-Men logo at the top ever so slightly, it’s a nice little touch to help the perspective.
Neal only ended up doing 9 covers for the X-Men in this time period, most of which could be highlighted here. For me it’s this one that’s the most eye popping and stands head and shoulders above the rest.
