On June 5, 2012 Brian Cronin posted a slideshow of what he considered the "10 Most Iconic Comic Book Covers of All Time." I took umbrage with that description, mostly the "of all time" portion. More than anything though, when I saw the post on Twitter, my hackles raised at the reference to a TV show that hasn't been on in almost 50 years. It seemed all very out of touch with the contemporary comic book world, a place that is filled with amazing art and talent. I kind of went out of my way to tweet about how there were amazing covers to contemporary comic books, and sort of stumbled into making this list.
Eye-catching covers don't always translate into amazing interiors, or guarantee satisfying stories, but I tried to select covers that would pull you into books with stories that won't disappoint. Here are some amazing covers to comic books that are out there and readily available.
