    Yeah that's Invisible Woman, she was on the MA Avengers team for a bit (and hella flirted with Cap).

    That's because it's the end scene of a horrible anime porno.

    Marvel you sons of bitches, what are you doing this for, only to probably cancel that cover and then put Super Hero Squad Deadpool on it.

    I realized there really wasn't anything that worked good enough for the sig from last night's episode and took a screen from the episode Jack Black was in (Investigative Journalism).

    I've always thought Sue was theoretically one of the most powerful characters around, but that cover is super creepy, with the anime face, little girl but with big boobs body and the camel toe.

    Yeah, Sue Storm is pretty powerful, but I didn't realize she could create objects with her light manipulation. I understand very basic shields and bubbles and stuff, but a fully formed beat-down stick seems a bit much. She's the Invisible Woman. Not Green Lantern.

    Although... now that I think about it, a Green Lantern Sue Storm would be pretty awesome.

    Sue should be able to do anything she wants with her powers since theres really nothing stopping her from forming shapes other than spheres,walls,shields,etc. Being around as long as she has she should really have branched out decades ago with invisible armour,weapons, bullets,etc.

    I've always wanted to see her make "bombs" by starting with a golf ball sized bubble that suddenly expands to the size of a 4 story building in a fraction of a second. Or any cool manipulation of her ability besides "force field."

    Early FF books were much more into the variety of manipulations each power could be used for, I haven't seen Spikey Bouncing Ball Reed in forever.

    Although, The Thing has really never gotten in on that sort of thing. Only so many different ways to hit people.

    Look at her hand in that picture, she's clearly holding an invisible gun.

    Yeah, I'd probably like the Fantastic Four a whole lot more if they weren't always holding back. I typically find them really boring to read about because the writers never get creative with how the use the team. Its always the same old shtick every time.

    Brain Wood always has spectacular covers for DMZ. A real gritty, graffiti look to them.

    David Aja did absolutely fantastic work on Immortal Iron Fists covers and inner artwork. Marvel is stupid for not using him more.

    stk375823.jpg

    By far though, my favourite cover artist is easily Yuko Shimizu. She's been doing the covers for The Unwritten, and looks like she'll keep doing them for the entire series, which pleases me greatly. She's an all around fantastic artist, and everyone should check out her unique style.

    He's actually doing the covers for the upcoming 5 Ronin mini-series.

    I don't think it's that Marvel doesn't want to use him, he's just slow or otherwise unable to produce art for them at a reasonable pace. He was originally slated to do the Mandarin story in Invincible Iron Man, until Carmine Di Giandomenico had to come in and do it.

    The only cover artist that consistently wows me, is Dave Johnson. Aside from his really fun Deadpool covers, he's been doing neat Freedom Fighters covers, that are done in kind of a propaganda style, with strong, bold colors.

    I go gaga for pretty much anything that's done in a minimalist style.

    Aja didn't have any deadline issues with Immortal iron Fist as far as I know. But if there were deadline issues, I'd have been happy to wait, just because his art was so fantastic.

    They had to use a bunch of fill-ins for Aja, but I think he did OK until he started doing Daredevil in addition to Iron Fist.

    The Losers had some really great covers.

    I remember Jose Ladronn catching a lot of shit around the time he was doing Planet Hulk covers, but I generally love his work. It's very cinematic in a way, while not being all static and photo-referenced. He also seems to have a strong Moebius influence, in the way that he renders figures. Everything looks a little gnarly and wrinkled.

    Hey Antimatter, I think somebody got into your dictionary and mixed up the definitions of the words "silly" and "awesome", so you ended up using the wrong one, there :(

    Gold Digger is what Fred Perry is generally known for and is anime as fuck

    As for Humberto Ramos, I really did not like his work on Runaways, mostly because his kineticy style didn't really gel with what was going on, but the guy rules as a cover artist
