    There's nothing wrong with the cover I posted

    Also the original cover for that one you posted was hilarious too

    We should probably stop before this turns into the transformers cover thread

    Iron Fist look the best there, the glow around his hands is the best depiction I've seen of his chi power.

    You should read Immortal Iron Fist. That had some kickass covers, and it had some awesome interior art and an amazing story.

    Covered is a neat blog. Artists do "covers" of comic book covers.

    Is Immortal Iron Fist ever coming back? I remember them saying at a Con panel that it was going on hiatus until after the Immortal Weapons books, but never heard about it again.

    Kevin Nowlan did a bunch of great Adventures of Superman covers during Casey's run, this is one of my favorite Supes covers in general (because the story is so so good):

    as612.jpg

    Of course this cover is good:

    as501.jpg

    And this one, where John Henry is smashing communism in the face, Steel style:

    One of my favorite Batman covers, because Scott McDaniel is great but Batman actually getting shot, and seeing the bulletproof vest just makes Batman less godlike:

    I was a big fan of the covers for The 198.
    3586vl4.jpg

    But I generally subscribe to the idea that comic covers should be more designer-ly, and less guys punching guys-ly. There was a meme that went around a while back, where video games were given Criterion Collection-inspired covers. I'd love for comic covers to have a similar aesthetic. Actually, the Umbrella Academy TPBs actually kind of have that same feel, I think.

    That's why I love the current Invincible Iron Man covers.

    The cool thing about Skottie Young is that just by his covers you can see his style change.

    Back with Human Torch #1 where he was basically a Humberto Ramos clone (the actual series was pretty good though, Kesel wrote it):

    humantorch1.jpg

    To Human Torch #12 where he started getting "funky":

    502452-human_torch_thing_skottie_yo.jpg

    To his New X-Men work:

    38-8.jpg

    To his Cable and Deadpool covers:

    I didn't know of this Skottie Young (I'd seen his stuff but wasn't aware of the man himself), and he does great work. It's impressive how a lot of his stuff is very light-hearted and fun but he can also do more serious, even sinister work like Iron Man and the Armour Wars #2.

    Nightcrawler as a dunebuggy driving James Bond type character is an excellent idea that needs further exploring in the Xbooks.

    That Moon Knight Punisher Team Up cover is too Finch for me. Comically overdone wrinkles, grimaces and grime.

    It seems kind of like Finch doing a Bradstreet cover, but instead looking like a 90s' Deathblow cover.

    That Mandarin #2 cover looks familiar, but I cannot recall what it could be based on.
