I've been looking at some of the top ten lists and whatnot for covers, trying to figure out some good ideas for the cover of my book, see what works, what doesn't, and I've found some really cool covers in the process. So what is/are your favourite cover(s)?

Few of my favourites from what I've found,

Don't know if I can say much, other than this one is just fantastically witty, and depressing at the same time. Kind of reminds me of the Hulk vs. rain mini-comic there was a little while back.

Sam Kieth, perfect example of gross excess actually working, as opposed to, say, Lobby McRiefield there, you know who I'm talking about.

Good call! I think I have a cut up beat issue of that Wolverine cover as part of a Marvel Comics Presents two sider somewhere around here, I always loved it, as well as Sam's NightCrawler and Nightmare stuff. Sam in general is one of my favs, but those were some earlier influences for me.

Still quite possibly my favorite Wolverine image of all time.

I thought DC's 52 had some of the best covers with almost every issue.

Holy crap, I just found out that they ripped off that Capn America sequence in WWI, that Ultimates one, http://www.superdickery.com/images/other/116_4_133.jpg

i dont have a picture of it and i cant look it up right at the moment. but that issue of uncanny X-men where Marc Silvestri drew wolverine on the big X all crucified like in the rain. that was a cover that made me ...as a kid go.."whoa...i have NO idea who the xmen are or what this is about..but i GOT to get this comic".
and i did. hence...my first exposure to an xmen comic. good times were had from there.

A couple issues before, the cover had Storm dead with Colossus chastizing Havok. *That* was my first issue of X-Men.
