What are your favorite comic book covers?

I like comic covers - especially old, clunky ones.


Recently been doing a lot of fake comic covers, but this isn't about that. My research during this project has just been a joy. So let's post some favorites - old and new - just cuz it's fun.

Just a couple from when I was a kid that are memorable.

Can't think of anything else at the moment.

Had a massive stack of Eagle comics as a kid.

Anything by Simon Bisley. This is cover art minus the typography etc as I can't find one with it.

Always loved this kinds of set ups in the Spirit comics:

This is probably one of the most amazing comics of all time and mostly unknown, the author stop making comics because the European comic industry was way to complicated and cheap to make the kind of stuff he was doing. This cover says so much about the book without spoiling anything it's great:

And from all the Arzach editions I think this is my favourite, it looks so fancy:

I love that comic book! Read it when I was in college and I still have that same issue! I'm a big Bisley fan, I think everything he does is bad ass! Most notable are his covers for Doom Patrol, pen and ink work in ABC Warriors, also the covers for Melting Pot, but Thumpn' Guts (Project X) is one of my favorites although the inside art is kinda meh. I think he was kinda lazy at this point of his career (probably because of Kevin Eastman's doing), also about the same time I stopped collecting comic books. I'm glad to see his art is now better than ever!

I was lucky to get this version with Graveyard on it because there were 3 (they were bagged so you couldn't see what you were getting) and for me this was the best!

I always loved this one

The art in the series was fantastic. I only own the first two though. The Wolverine he created looks like a badass vato from the bario, in an amazing way.

Not a giant fan of this comic, but a huge fan of anything Tony Moore draws. Once he stopped doing the artwork, I stopped reading.

..its funny because I was just about to say, "Fuck that Liefeld guy though." All his covers, especially the earlier ones, is the same stupid grimace with Come Attack Me pose, giant thighs & tiny ankles and cross hatching everywhere.

He's the absolute worst. But at least he's also a thief and a millionaire!

He's the Rachael Ray of comics. I don't actually know where I'm going with this analogy but I hate them both
