See pic for a memory jogger. Was August, 1986 a fun month for you?



I remember them! But I have to say, looking at those covers, I don't remember too many of the stories. Poster covers have never really worked for me.
That said, I think I have around 10 or so of those issues. I have the Spidey books. I remember the Web Of Spider-Man issue was part of the Irish terrorist storyline, which was quite good.

The Avengers book was part of the classic Siege storyline. Great Roger Stern work!

I did remember that the FF book featured a Thing/Mole Man story. That cover probably had the most personality of all the covers that month.

Some research tells me the Captain America issue was the first appearance of USAgent. I seem to remember the Alpha Flight story being pretty good, part of the Namor/Marina story. The Hulk ish looks like prime Mantlo but it's actually Al Milgrom writing, so I'm a bit skeptical.

Which cover do you like better? ASM 282 or it's reprint in Marvel Tales 290 from 1994?
