Mortals, Take Cover! 11/18/10

So it’s Thursday, which means one of two things: New books came out yesterday, and I take today to talk about the covers of those books, at least from the big two publishers.  Let’s get on with it, shall we?

10. Chaos War – Chaos King #1

The image of Mikaboshi so takes over the forefront that I almost didn’t notice the background, and if that weren’t compelling enough, each of the characters in his snare is fairly recognizable, so good work.

9. X-Men #5

I feel like even though the vampire thing is overdone at this point, this cover is painted well enough to get me to look past the vampires.

8. Green Lantern #59

A cover illustrating a question that’s been on my mind since the end of Blackest Night: what happened to the Indigo tribe?  Let’s hope that the book doesn’t follow the trend in recent GL covers of being loosely related to the cover.

7. Thunderbolts #150

Even though it’s something that’s been done in just about every incarnation of the Thunderbolts, I totally don’t mind seeing them against the Avengers.

6. DC Universe Legacies #7

A great homage to both Knightfall and the Death of Superman at work here.  Plus, this is a really fun title.

5. The Flash #6

The Flash, the Rogues, The Renegades, what’s not to like here?

4. Hellblazer #273

I love punk rock John.  He would make a great action figure.

3. Chaos War – Dead Avengers #1

Honestly, if you’re not an Avengers fan, this cover will do nothing for you.  Fortunately, I am a HUGE Avengers fan.

2. Osborn #1

The artist captured Norman’s look perfectly.  He’s just the right amount of amused and menacing here, and I love the goblin tattoo.

1. Batman Inc. #1

This truly showcases the concept perfectly.  An international Batman, and a well drawn one, at that.

And that’s all for this week, folks!  Come back again!
