Since its official debut in October of 1886, the Statue of Liberty has become not only one of the world's most recognizable American icons, but a symbol of freedom and inspiration as well.
Because of this vaunted status, the Statue of Liberty has appeared in countless movies, TV shows, video games, books, and...of course...comic books. To start the July 4th festivities a few days early, I thought I'd take a stroll through various cover galleries searching out comic book covers that feature an image of Lady Liberty...fourteen of which you can see below.
However, I know there's a bunch more out there, so I encourage you to post specific titles and issue numbers for Statue of Liberty covers you'd like me to add. I'll be sure to add your suggestions to a second "reader suggestions" gallery. Keep in mind I'd like the statue itself to appear on the cover, not characters resembling or based on the Statue of Liberty (such as Lady Liberty of the Freedom Fighters or the Force of July). With that...give me Liberty (covers)!
