    I can't find my scanner cord, at the moment at least. I would like to actually scan some of the logo-less Radical covers in the NYCC Sampler.

    Cool stuff. I really like that Superman up in the clouds one and the Batman year 100 cover. I think my favourite covers are from the Shaolin Cowboy (by Geof Darrow). I like that there are alternate covers for every issue. The last two are alternate covers by Moebius and Mike Mignola.
    Keep em coming!

    My favourites I guess but they are all beautiful:

    Technically not a single issue cover, but a trade cover. I have it as a print on my wall. Every-time I look at it I see something new.

    Post your favorite comic covers

    It's the cover for the second Runaways Hardback.

    Adam Hughes' Catwoman covers are probably some of the best in comics history. You can find them all on his DA account. Here's a little known comic I loved when I was a kid. I drew robots endlessly after this. Too bad the company fell before the story could come to a conclusion. Cover by Neal Adams:

    EDIT: Who drew the Hancock cover?

    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    Frank Quitely, the Superman cover and the Man-on-big-tongue cover in this thread were also done by him. Sometimes I hear people discrediting his work because his work isn't always traditionally 'pretty', but I personally feel he's brilliant and one of the finest artists working in comics today.

    FRank Quietly did the hancock cover, but whoever colored should stop with comic covers and get to coloring plumbing instruction manuals . That guy sucks. Anywhoo, I dig frank quietly's covers but just dont like the how obsessed/in love with his own rendering he is when he does interiors. I think at times he tries to pull a geoff darrow style, but he cant balance his shit much there. But yeah , he is talented and skilled no doubt.

    FrankFrazetta, Fire & Ice Movie Poster 1983

    I don't wanna de-rail the thread but I think this is more than worthy to be here.
    It was actually for an animated movie for those who don't know.

    May not be a comic cover, Daniel. But Frazetta deserves to be in every single thread on these forums.

    Well, here's a couple more Frazettas from the Verotik run, "Death Dealer #1" and "Jaguar God." Image has also recently been doing a series based on some of his other paintings. Of course, if we want to expand this a bit, take your pick any of those early Warren magazines (Eerie, Creepy, or Vampirella.)

    I like how the chest tilts towards you... independent of ...well everything else.

    I think that picture just diminished my quality of life just a little more, thanks a lot.

    Damn, I really dig the style on that Hellblazer cover, who drew it?



    My sketchbook is bigger than yours.
