Post your favorite comic book covers. Here are my top 5 favorite covers in no particular order.

1. Spider-Man/Daredevil #1



I don't own this issue or even know what it is about. I don't even know who drew it. But I just love this cover. Just great poses from the characters against an amazing backdrop.

2. X-Men: Phoenix - Endsong #1



I know there are a lot of Greg Land haters out but I like him. I love Phoenix and this is my favorite image of her.

3. Web of Spider-Man #32



Words can't begin to describe how awesome this cover is. So I won't even try.

4. Wonder Woman (Vol 2) #195



Again, I don't own this issue but I remember when I first saw it I e-mailed it to everyone, including non-comic fans I knew. It's just an amazing work of art and Hughes is definitely one of the master cover artists out there.

5. Iron Man (Vol 3) #76



Greatest Iron Man cover ever.

Good topic! I could break these down into so many categories. But off the top of my head these are typically on the top of my list:

7. Just good Design work on this one. Not your typical comic cover much more new age graphic design style


6. MMMMM. Deadworld Covers.


5. This is my cell phone background



4. Brett Booth Daydreaming


3. Portacio & Iceman! HOORAY!


2. Brett Booth Daydreaming

1. Flat out fabulous! I want a post of this marvel!

There have been some great covers on here.Always been a huge fan of Portacio's work on X-Factor and Boothe's work on Stormwatch,infact I think the first few arcs of Stormwatch (vol 1) are some of the best comics I have ever read and are highly underrated amongst comic fans.

I have always liked the Web Of Spider-man cover with him rising from the grave,very very cool.
The Daredevil/Spider-Man cover is way cool too.This is the first time I have ever saw that cover.

I don't have a pic of it, but X-Men 141 Days of Future Past is one of my favs. I got Suydam to auto his version of this cover on a print :)

'Daredevil: End of Days'
I don't think it's actually been release yet though lol. According to it's wiki page.

Art is by Bill Sienkiewicz, I'm a fan of his work and have liked this cover he did from the moment I saw it.

Thanks Mr. Zombie! Ok. my other four would have to consist of the Preacher covers by Glen Fabry and the Nocturnals covers from Dan Brereton. Something about their styles. Like that Hack/Slash cover Rob! Awsome series and Seeley comes up with some wicked covers. Glad to see Kevin Mellon (local artist yay!) got a chance on that book.
