A few of my favorites.
Zeck is one of my favorites. Apart from his GI Joe stuff, Secret Wars #1, Captain America Annual 8 (vs. Wolverine), and the Punisher limited series stuff are all tops.

Interestingly, John Byrne and George Perez are two of my favorite comic artists of them all, but they don't have all that many comic covers that stick out as being truly iconic in my mind. Some of Byrne's X-Men and Perez's New Teen Titans come close, though in the former case I think Cockrum has the more important/iconic covers.

That's weird. It is a variant of the actual first issue artwork he did, possibly more recently? I had a poster of the original in my room as a kid. I also had a giant, door sized Jim Lee X-Men poster, but he couldn't touch Art Adams in my mind.

My favorite Adams cover (and one of my very favorite comics as a kid) is X-Men Annual #10:

An awesome idea for a thread. Been following since it started up but didn't get round to contributing anything. Some great covers in there though. Can't seem to post pictures just yet but a couple of my favs are batman 465, amazing spiderman 300, superman brainiac and maybe some less popular choices are the variant to the new 52 batman 1 (I think it was by jim lee), and Todd mcfarlane's spider-man 1. I remember seeing that as a kid and just fell in love with the image. Bought the issue and the poster right then and there in the shop.

In hindsight this seems like a worthless post without pics. Haha.

I haven't seen much from Whilce Portacio in a long time. I was a fan of his back in the day, and still like his work. Part of that is probably due to his not being overexposed like everyone else from the '90s was. I haven't seen much from Dale Keown, either.

I liked Portacio's Punisher run and X-Men stuff.
Punisher #10 was always one of the best covers for one of my favorite Marvel rivalries.

Really liked Keown when he was doing Hulk which directly led into Pitt.

Wow...great topic.

Too many great covers for me to list...some of my favs have already ben listed (Spawn #1, that Clayton Crain Ghost Rider cover, ASM 129 etc.).

Here are my favorites, though:

Amazing Fantasy 15...my all time fav!

http://www.samruby.com/AmazingFantasy/Large/AmazingFantasy15.jpg

Amazing SPider-Man 252 - first black costume in the ASM series, and a tribute to the AF15 cover...

Always loved this Predator cover. I remember spending $15 on this book way back when...it was a ton of money at the time!

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110120044424/avp/images/7/76/Predator_Issue_2.jpg

I'm sure most of us remember these X-men covers by Jim Lee...big moment of my childhood was getting all 4 covers to this:

Love this Chew cover...one of my favorite series.

Not sure why I love this FF48 cover so much...artwork is not that great when I think about it...just a classic moment in Marvel history, I guess. And, first appearance of 2 of my favorite characters...Silver Surfer and Galactus.

Ok, basically any Daredevil cover by Alex Maleev are near the tops of my list...like these:

That is a very special cover, because it is the only time in his entire career that Liefeld actually attempted to draw a foot.

Too bad he didn't attempt to draw the rest of the man.

I could also post any number of Savage Sword of Conan covers. Some of the best cover art ever!!

Of course it is cheating a little as some of the covers used existing Boris paintings. But many were originals made for the mag itself.

Hopefully this is the right place to find out the answer to something that's been bugging me for years.

I'm absolutely sure I once saw an X-men cover that had Angel on the front. I can't remember if he was completely archangel or if his feathered wings were breaking through again, but he was on his knees, crying and I'm sure the caption said something like "When Angels cry..."!

Trouble is, I can't seem to find a picture of it anywhere. Can anyone put me out of my misery and tell me if I just somehow dreamt it up or not!

I’ve always like the Aliens covers and got really lucky whilst helping a friend out some time ago at his store. One of my favourite pieces or AvP art came from the Eternal series and he had one of those big posters you see plastering small comic stores stuffed in the bottom of a box!

Unfortunately it was folded and creased to hell but he gave it to me and it’s now treasured.

My poster... Sorry about to the poor pic.

This is one of the first comics that I remember owning. I actually still have it...though the cover is ripped to shreds now. I loved this book when I was little.

All right, here are some more of my all time favorite covers.

It's hard to choose based on just the cover alone. There are tons of covers that seem more special or are personal favorites cause the issue is so good, but I wanted to share some that I think are really striking visually, whether or not the story was good. But most of these are really good anyway.

So. Frank Miller. Probably my all time favorite American comic book artist. I think he reached his peak right around the late 80s and early 90s. Before he started doing Sin City and taking things to a minimal level, which I am a fan of, he was doing some of his most detailed art and composition that was colored by Lynn Varley's inimitable paints. I think their work on Elektra Lives Again is the best stuff Frank ever drew.

The cover of the Wolverine mini-series trade:

270198

Lone Wolf and Cub number 6:

270199

Otomofan
06-14-2016, 06:31 AM
Continuing with Wolverine...

The first issue of his ongoing series, by John Buscema:

270200

Issue 43, love the use of color here, drawn by Marc Silvestri:

270201

Issue 78 by Adam Kubert...love the use of white negative space:

270202

Issue 273...just an awesome portrait of Logan by David Finch

270203

Variant cover to Wolverine Origins #1 by the late Michael Turner:

270204

Otomofan
06-14-2016, 06:37 AM
Everyone knew the GI Joe comic blew the cartoon out of the water.

Mike Zeck's covers were legendary.

270205

270206

270207

Not to be undone by Michael Golden!

270208

Speaking of Micheal Golden...look at these striking covers from The 'Nam

270209

270210

And then there was GI Joe's less successful cousin Transformers. (Hard to believe now, but back in the late 80s, Joe comics blew TF comics away in terms of popularity.) I love so many of the old Transformers covers, but the first one that comes to mind is issue 67, drawn by a pre-X-Men Jim Lee

270211

Otomofan
06-14-2016, 06:48 AM
And a few more....

Grant Morrison's run on Animal Man deserves to be in the top 5 super hero comics of ALL TIME. And each issue was wrapped in a gorgeous cover by the one and only Brian Bolland. It's hard to choose just one, but this one is a real stand out:

270212

BRASS was a little-known Image book from the 90s. Iron Man rip off...guy flies around in a suit of alien armor. Not a remarkable story but this cover always stayed with me, drawn by Richard Bennett:

270213

There are too many amazing covers by Joe Quesada to post them all, so I'll choose this one, Ninjak #3, because of the obvious homage to Alphonse Mucha, a big influence on Quesada and a pioneer of art nouveau:

270214

Another of the all time great series is Planetary, by Warren Ellis and John Cassady. Again, it's hard to select just one cover from so many beautiful covers, but one I really liked is number 21, again for possible homage to Mucha, but also for the psychedelic linework and the two-tone green and purple:

270217

And now Vertigo Pop: Tokyo #4 by the late great Seth Fisher. This one manages to be uniquely Japanese without resorting to drawing in an obvious manga style. Fisher was a mad genius and it's a damn shame he's no longer with us.

270218

Last but not least, the cover of Young Magazine, from Japan. 1986. Drawn by Katushiro Otomo. This issue featured a segment of AKIRA. You might recognize it from my avatar! I just really love this cover. This comic book is pretty rare. People don't usually save the weekly manga books...they usually read them and throw them away, and wait for the collected editions. I was lucky enough to buy an actual copy of this one last year...can't believe some Japanese nerd had enough foresight to save it for 30 years, but it's mine now!

I had the first printing of the Wolverine trade (not that a first printing mattered, it was a trade) with that art on a white background. A piece of adhesive tape accidentally got on the cover, and when I peeled it off, I stripped off some of the artwork. ERGH!

Loved Mike Zeck's cover's, and that Michael Golden cover to G.I. Joe Annual #2 was awesome, as was the artwork inside. HIs run on The "Nam was great as well.

You're bringing me back to my childhood... :monkey2

272796

272797

And one of my favorites, a guy that I think is underrated and kind of just written off as a "girly pin-up artist" but I love his details....Joe Benitez:

Oh, now I get why, Daredevil & Blackwidow were the original Marvel Team-up lol!
Actually quite interesting how they cycle the villains and cameos through different runs of writers and artists.
The Owl and Bullseye, Spidey and Punisher....

BWS and Frank Miller covers for the win. I also like the Byrne one. Never seen that one.

Yeah, I was never really impressed with BWS as a writer, but as an artist he has a very unique style. Great lines and use of color. I liked his Weapon X stuff:

275540
275541
275543
275542

Another artist I thought did amazing covers but wasn't really impressed by his sequential skills is Bill Sienkiewicz.

I really didn't care for Elektra Assassin but I still love the covers...they just scream mid-late 80s:

275544
275545
275546
275547

He just did a few new Daredevil covers and he's still got it:

275548

And I always loved the cover he did for Batman 400....just spooky as hell.

275549

And the cover of Wolverine 10, one of the all time classic Wolverine tales!

275550

Oh, and I just remembered...he not only did the cover for the very first issue of Transformers, but he also did one much much later in the run that's just a really great image:

Wow, that new Daredevil one looks amazing!

That Transformers cover is what started me. Wolverine #10 got me into army building. It was my first duplicate. I picked up the second one in one of those grab bags.

A lot of artists draw what could be considered the "definitive" Wolverine....Jim Lee, John Byrne, Frank Miller...

But in my mind, NOBODY ever drew a better Wolverine than Art Adams. He's simply one of the best artists to ever draw comics that ever lived. Indisputable.

275816

And on the topic of The Shadow from before....this isn't a cover, but a house ad for the 1987 DC Comics Shadow series, but it was the first time I'd ever seen or heard of the character. I saw this in the back of the other books I was reading, and it scared the hell out of me. This is always the first image that springs to mind when I think of the Shadow.

275817

And the other image I think of is this cover by Mike Kaluta. I think it was from a Dark Horse book around the time of the movie?

Yeah, I was never really impressed with BWS as a writer, but as an artist he has a very unique style. Great lines and use of color. I liked his Weapon X stuff:

275543

The first issue of Iron Man I ever read, picked it up in a pile of 80's back-issues from the first comic shop I ever visited at age 11. The beginning of a long and expensive relationship...

I Really do love BWS's art, his Machine Man run was excellent.


Another artist I thought did amazing covers but wasn't really impressed by his sequential skills is Bill Sienkiewicz.

I really didn't care for Elektra Assassin but I still love the covers...they just scream mid-late 80s:

Sienkiewicz is an artistic god. That Elektra comic is criminally underrated and the perfect distillation-cum-satire of 80's excess.

My fav Daredevil covers:
http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/daredevil/247-1.jpg
Another Widow cameo from Vess, and
http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/daredevil/238-1.jpg
back to Arthur (and crossover gimmicks, lol).


Trying to recall what else Sienkiewicz influenced me on,
I found out both him and BSW actually started me on The New Mutants.
http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/new-mutants/30-1.jpg

http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/new-mutants/36-2.jpg
Yeah, Secret Wars II got me into the world of Marvel but before that,
it was black Spidey from... Transformers and that (#1) was the first comic I bought.


Sorry, I'm gunna put his entire run here, coz it's just that good:

They all just scream at me. I was real young, and back then these images terrified me (in the good way that I love horror).

Lol, I found this one is by both Adams & Sienkiewicz.
http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/new-mutants/39-1.jpg

Man, have they omnibused this series yet? This is one I'd want. There was something I really liked about The New Mutants and it had nothing to do with pouches.

You guys have got me on such a high just looking back at these covers. Remember those days of flipping through boxes of back issues for the ones you were missing. All we did was memorise those covers, lol.

Dark Knight III The Master Race turned out to be a pretty lackluster affair, but the covers....my god, the covers were amazing! The variant covers that is. Basically everyone in the industry who loved DKR when they were coming up (which is everyone) wanted to do homage covers to the original story.

All of the beautiful variant covers were just collected in a hardcover last week and I highly recommend it. Nobody does it like Jim Lee though...his takes on the original Dark Knight imagery is just legendary:

367896
367897
367898
367901
367899
367900


My favorite Miller variant wasn't from the regular series but from the crappy Last Crusade one shot. Sadly, this image is not reproduced in the hardcover:

367902

And here are the amazing Bill Sienkiewicz's takes:

367903
367904
367905

Greg Capullo did this beauty:

367906

The wonderful John Cassady:

367907

And the main man himself, Simon "The Biz" Bisley....I love that he's not afraid to give a thirteen year old girl curves and pokey nipples. It's nice to see he's stayed true to his artistic vision after all these years!

367908

OK, a few more...I can't help it, these are so good!

More Greg Capullo:

367910
367911
367912

The one and only Brian Bolland:
367914

I don't know who this Chris Burnham is but these were really clever and well done:

367915
367916

The masterful Bruce Timm:
367917

And a nice one in John Romita JR's signature style:

367918

I think I'll go back and start looking again for all time favorite covers from all manner of comics...I really enjoyed doing that earlier in the thread.

But as a preview, this isn't exactly a cover necessarily but it's a poster for the manga DOMU by my all time favorite Otomo Katsuhiro. (It was used as the cover for the collection in several overseas versions.) This was just included in a collection of reprints of some of his favorite posters from his career. Just look at this image! The white negative space framing the clean geometric lines of the building design....the guy is a genius. One of the best artists I've ever seen.

Jim Lee generic? Blasphemy!!

I still think he did his best work on X-Men, (and I'm sure everyone else in the world agrees) but I particularly enjoy this Dark Knight stuff cause he's getting to live out his own fanboy dreams. Like everyone else in comics, DKR was a huge influence on him.

I remember anxiously awaiting Legends of the Dark Knight number 50, cause it was going to contain the first ever pin up of Batman by Jim Lee. This was in 93 or so....Lee had only done Marvel and Image work so seeing him do a DC character was gonna be mindblowing! Remember, all we had for hype back then was Wizard...no internet other that stuff like usenet.

So I got the issue.....and there was Jim Lee's Batman:

368047

I was.....let down. I wanted to see the ultra detailed X-Men style Jim Lee Batman! But he was so clearly enamored with DKR and Frank that he chose to ape his style. He'd finally get around to doing "his" Batman several years later with "Hush" and all that, but this was not what I had in mind.

I've since come to appreciate it though.

Around that time, he was also doing a few pages here and there for Deathblow. (He couldn't be bothered to finish it and eventually Tim Sale took over.) His Deathblow style was also done in a blatant Frank Miller style:

368048

And don't think Frank didn't notice! Look who Marv is roughing up in Dame to Kill For:

368049

Obviously there are no hard feelings all these years later. After all, they collaborated on All Star Batman, which was.....well. You know.

Say what you will about Rob Liefeld....he probably deserves it. But if you were a middle schooler in the early 90s, chances are, you loved his stuff as much as I did. I tried several times over the years to go back and revisit it....but it's all pretty much crap. Still....at the time, there was nothing like him.

390920
390921
390922
390923
390924
390925
390926

And after that he was gone, off to do Youngblood (which I eagerly bought but was so disappointed in) and they brought in a fill-in artist. The fill artist did his best to imitate Rob's terrible artwork but it was just phony. You could tell it wasn't the genuine Liefeld. A few issues later and Greg Capullo was the regular artist, and he did a much better job than Rob ever did. Designed new costumes, had a proper understanding of anatomy, etc. He had a great run on X-Force. Still...wasn't the same without Rob.

I've grown to like Jim Lee a lot more than I ever used to watching the various videos and livestreams he's been putting out of himself drawing. He's astonishingly clean and efficient and a font of solid drafting advice.

Also that first Liefeld cover only looks good because McFarlane inked it. I'd forgotten just how horrible Liefeld's own lines could be...

I know not who you are, but "Surge Diaclone" may be the best user name of all time.

I like Geof Darrow but I definitely think his stuff is too busy. I know that's his "thing" but sometimes too much is just too much.

Bisley, on the other hand, is a god. Or the dark beast. He's amazing.

I think his early stuff is best, while he still had some restraint to him. When he goes 100% Biz it can be kind of messy.

I know this isn't a cover, but this image from the first Batman/Judge Dredd is probably one of the best Batman drawings ever printed.

Lol thanks!

Yeah, Bisley is definitely a god. His body of work from the late 80s to about the mid 90s was just untouchable...and it was all coming out one after another-even concurrently (I think he was doing the Doom Patrol covers the same time he was doing Slaine). I think after that his stuff started slowly regressing and got a little too idiosyncratic. But, no matter, I love his work and he's easily in my personal top 5.

David Finch Ascension...funny thing about this cover, I believe it's the first time any of his painted work was published (wish he did more of it to be honest) and it looks like it was inspired by a paolo parente Conan cover that had come out the year before.

It's time for more classic comic covers!!

I just did a google search and grabbed some of the best of best. Most are from the 80s/90s. No particular order. A lot of them use inventive use of negative space and bold colors. I'm sure you'll recognize most, or all, of these. Apologies if they've already been posted. OK, enough chit chat, let's enjoy some of the best comic covers of the last few decades:

I've always loved this one. I had a poster of it on my wall as a teen.

Just stumbled on this thread. There are dozens that you folks have listed already that are pure classics and really take me back. Here's a few more that are dear to me:

I never bought any of the late Michael Turner's books, but I appreciated that he had a unique style. It still fit in with what was going on at Image at the time, but you could look at one of his pieces and instantly recognize it was his. Not exactly anatomically correct, but still very stylish and expressive. I especially liked seeing his takes on the DC heroes later in his career.

Here's my favorite cover by him, the variant to Wolverine Origins #1. I'll always love the brown costume best for Wolvie, so it's cool seeing interesting takes on it:

Speaking of Wolverine Origins.....Joe Quesada did some absolutely stunning covers for this series. The best, hands down, is this intricate homage to Alphonse Mucha:

It was Michael Turner’s work that really sucked me into the comic world when he created Fathom. Such a great artist. Now I enjoy all different takes on my fave characters by different artists. Gabrielle Dell’Otto, Adi Granov and Artgerm are awesome.
