Welcome to the page where we showcase Adam Eterno or at least the comics who gave him the front page treatment! It was usually a good indicator of popularity of a given series if a character featured on the cover. And even though he graced a few of the covers during his time at Lion and Valiant , it was to be abroad that he really got attention!



Even though Adam Eterno featured on a good few covers across the British comic weeklies in which he appeared only these few have become available to us. Hopefully more will see the light of day as time goes on. Meanwhile here are the covers for Lion & Thunder Issues dated 22nd Dec 1972 , 3rd Feb 1973 , 12th May 1973 , 11th August 1973 , 6th Oct 1973 , 3rd Nov 1973 and Valiant Weekly Issue 680 and Valiant & Vulcan Issues 691 and 698.
