Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

This cover always struck me as both excellent in terms of art, and striking in composition/concept.

Brian Bolland...

Brian Bolland is one of those people that can sell a comic just by the cover. Love his stuff.

This was always one of my favorites. Somehow looks both modern and golden age. I loved the thought of these guys sitting in a cafe somewhere just shooting the shit together while out of their costumes.

Looks like no cover until Thursday. But it will be worth the wait.

Fine. I will do a weird one in B5Erik's stead. Here is a WTF cover. I mean, seriously...What The Fuck? Did the artist decide to combine Wolverine and Beast for this cover?

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

This always struck me as an outstanding cover, mostly for the mood and colors.

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

^It definitely has a huge feeling of something ominous coming without showing the actual threat! Very cool!

I had a weird variety of comics as a kid for various reasons and owned probably at least one issue of almost everything. So here is an issue of Dazzler, a comic I know or knew nothing about...but I had this one particular reason for whatever reason...

OK, this is an all time classic from John and Sal Buscema.

^Definite classic cover & poses!

I never was a Silver Surfer fan and only had ones where he guest appeared. This is the only issue I had of his stuff that I can remember.

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

I assume everyone here is somewhat familiar with Action Comics #1 - Superman's first appearance - but how about the second issue?? (FYI - Superman didn't appear on the cover again until issue #7)

Here's an issue I haven't read, but the cover is striking. By Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti.

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

Mildly similar, this is an issue I had as a kid. The story inside was haunting and deep with a badass Punisher appearance. The last page freaked me out. I was only 9 years old when it was released. I read this issue dozens of times.



Spoiler:



sorry. couldn't find a smaller page.

The original art for this cover sold at auction a couple of weeks back for $102,000.

Flash 123 by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson. Back when Carmine was a good artist!

Classic cover. I always thought this promo was a cool take-off of that cover for the recent TV show.

Did Mad Magazine finally get the funny back? I thought this was a pretty amusing cover,

I'll be incredibly happy when I don't have to hear about Taylor Swift dating Travis Kelce anymore. The most inorganic push of any relationship I've ever seen in media history. The Royals over in England receive less attention.

Re: Comic Book Cover Of The Day

OK, here's one that I've always liked that is both good and bad. Welcome to Todd McFarlaneland!

I love the layout and the colors, and there's a ton of great detail - but McFarlane's cartoony style knocks it down a peg. I don't hate McFarlane's art, but I haven't been a fan of it since about 1994. Still, this is a good cover, overall. And this run was hugely successful at the time.

I always liked the way McFarlane drew Hulk. How about a Spider-Punch to the nuts!

Early McFarlane Spidey art is pretty great though his style becomes more and more ornate with each passing issue, a foreshadowing of his Spawn art. It eventually becomes too elaborate for its own good.

What happened in 1994 that made you stop liking Todd MacFarlane? I'm not a huge fan or anything, but that seems an odd cutoff given that by '94 he was more or less done as an artist.
