To celebrate the arrival of my one hundredth follower here is a gallery of one hundred hundredth issues. Centennial issues are always fun in comics, sometimes well marked and celebrated by the companies and sometimes overlooked, but always indicative of a comic which has proven to be durable and popular over a length of time. Many great comics never reach this goal. The only EC Comic on the list is Mad for instance despite that company's fine accomplishments. Gold Key never seemed to care what the number of a book was. Marvel usually paid attention, and sometimes DC did, but not always.
Here's the gallery, I hope you enjoy it. Marvel, DC, Fawcett, Quality, Archie, Harvey, Gold Key, Dell, Warren, and others are included, especially my beloved Charlton. And by the way, thanks to one and all for checking in here. I appreciate it.
And let me take this time to thank the Grand Comic Book Database where most of these covers came from. I use that resource a lot, and I check it on a regular basis. Good work by good people.
