Default Comic Book Covers

This is a thread for comic book covers. Comic book covers are cool. Post comic book covers.



This is my favorite L&R cover but I'm also posting it to post this, a variant cover for some Marceline comic.



and more comic book covers





That's Josie and the Pussycats by the way



and some Batman. This one didn't get used because DC didn't want their Batman associated with the far superior Adam West Batman. So the actual cover has Donna Troy doing the Batusi

Here's the first three covers of the new Hawkeye series by David Aja







And here's his Secret Avengers cover. That's Shang-Chi by the way.



I'll post more Aja later. He did covers for some Red Skull mini and I'll definitely post some Immortal Iron Fist covers.

Wish I had those 50th anniversary Spider-Man covers.

They are seriously really cool looking. :I

I'm too tired to see if I can find a bigger version, but I had this issue back in the day and I always liked the art style.

So can we just make this a general poster/cover thread? There can be brilliant covers for generally any medium.

Anyhow the Marcos Martin variant covers for the 50th anniversary of Spider-Man. Death of Gwen Stacey is by far my favorite.

Anyhow, I suppose Spider-Man outta the Marvel lot tends to get the best covers if I think about it.







Then there's Joe Kubert covers.

I don't know, other posters and stuff lack the pizzaz of comic covers. I'm probably going to go the other way and make this a comic art thread.

Thought that people here would get a kick out of this one.



I like his outfit the best. Like he totally had a Rocky training montage so he could deck Spidey in the face.

Also here's my pitch for the Amazing Spider-Man sequel.

I'm just going to lovingly stare at both of these until January. Then I will still lovingly stare at them but they will be physically in my hands.

Marvel solicits for February are out today and this cover is astounding. I had to share it somewhere.

god that Sienkiewicz. I'm so hard for that man's art.

That reminds me, in Young Avenger's #1 one of the posters on Wiccan's wall is this and I'm so fucking jealous.

Spoiler for The Wicked + The Divine covers:
These are the normal covers and I think the design is fantastic on them. Hopefully each god gets a cover like this before they move on to other styles. McK is selling posters for 2 & 3 but that's like $60 American and I don't know if I like Amaterasu that much.








Here's a Bryan Lee O'Malley variant for #1 which is the one that I ordered.



There's a retailer exclusive variant for #2 that I don't think I can get. It is obviously inspired by Bowie's mug shot. This is the lock screen on my iPod now.



This one is the best. Sex Criminals artist Chip Zdarsky drew it. Here's the thrilling origin of this piece.

I'll admit, it wasn't until The Social Network that I started having an attraction for font over the profile like covers. It honestly looks good done right.

Huh. Yeah. Since it's just the title and some flourish I didn't even think of that. But usually a big ole face with words does make me think of that. It usually comes off as lazy or direct parody.

There are some neat process notes on it.

Quote:
Jamies high concept, Hannahs design. The designer Hannah Donovan is a long term friend of ours, and she did a little comic work with me on THREE. She wanted to be involved early, and we were glad to have her. Shes very much the high level aesthetic conductor of the book.

Jamies concept was portraits, done in the style of a fashion magazine, specifically with those colouring effects. The full-page logo is the sort of thing which retailers a decade ago would have been outraged about, I suspect, but didnt get a mention now. Not sure what it says, but I think its a good thing.

We considered losing our names entirely from the cover, but had a moment of sense.

...

My fave minor thing? The idea of the + instead of And/& (Hannahs, I believe), which both gives a nod towards christianity while also resembling a cross-hair right in the middle of the characters face, in a Public Enemy fashion. This may just be me.
I really like the plus as a crosshair thing. It's clever.
