Best Covers isn’t a pit. Best Covers is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, never get to try again. The fall breaks them. Some are given a chance to climb. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Only Best Covers is real.
Cover by Kevin Maguire
Wade is a terrible sponsor. Possibly the worst. Jack Daniels himself would be better. The Captain. An actual grey goose.
Cover by Adam Hughes
This one’s actually stimulating my seasonal allergy symptoms. Such is the recreation of a dewey woodland at dawn.
Indestructible Hulk #6
Cover by Walt Simonson
Walt Simonson is always worthy. I love Hulk’s depiction as an absolute green-eyed monster here. Just an avatar of want and bestial fury. He’s like a gargoyle. But it’s the special effects that make it. The fireworks. That sizzling krackle.
Mind the Gap #9
Cover by Rodin Esquejo
Contemporary noir. This is fear made manifest through expression and heightened lighting. Love those earrings too. They function like police flashers. Silent klaxons.
All-New X-Men #10
Cover by Stuart Immonen
A death drop. Death from above. We’re practically overwhelmed by the velocity on this one.
Cover by Jock
Jock’s chosen some simple, elegant touchstones for each of these covers. From the simple act of escape to this image of the pivotal camera phone being destroyed by sniper fire. What sells it though is the perfect placement of the title logo. Fantastic composition.
