It’s part two of the poll to find our favorite Batman cover of the year 1941!

Keep in mind that you’re not voting for what cover was the most important to Batman history! This isn’t a poll to see which comic was the biggest milestone. So even though I add some fun facts with a few of these issues, don’t let it affect your decision on which cover you believe looks the coolest. We’re judging these contenders by their covers alone– don’t make me take away the fun facts! As always, our poll will end in 2 weeks and I’ve already taken the winner of our Part 1 poll and added it to this latest list of contenders.

Previous winners are…

1939: Detective Comics #31

1940: Batman #1

And now, let’s decide which of these is the Batman News community’s favorite cover of 1941!

In this issue, the President of the United States and the director of the FBI invite Batman and Robin to the White House.
