Love all of those covers. My favorites are the Rocket Raccon cover and the GOTG cover.
Jollem - 5/26/2014, 5:05 AM

TheAbaryMan369 - 5/26/2014, 5:11 AM
lol Rocket is insane
BoomTubeB - 5/26/2014, 5:23 AM
ORIGINAL SIN #8 - JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO FTW!
BaronZemo1 - 5/26/2014, 5:24 AM
The first time in a while I like something Elektra-related.
Also DAT SPIDER-MAN 2099!!!
ManCalledSting - 5/26/2014, 5:31 AM
Alex Ross with 3 of the covers. Ross is by far my favorite comic artist.
Chloefornication - 5/26/2014, 5:39 AM
Oh god...

They redesigned the characters to make them look like in the movies. I knew this was coming sooner or later, but it still sucks.
Enphlieuwince - 5/26/2014, 5:43 AM
Very cool indeed...
TheDpool - 5/26/2014, 6:23 AM
That Alex Ross GOTG cover should come with a warning - Viewing this cover may cause dampness among the ladies...
Pedrito - 5/26/2014, 6:31 AM
Where the hell is Hawkeye this month?!

It's cool that they're releasing those Agents of SHIELD posters as alternative covers for various series in August.
Pedrito - 5/26/2014, 6:36 AM
@chloefornication
They've only changed Starlrod's mask And that's good because his helmet at the start of Bendis' run looked like a bicycle helmet.
FerFogs - 5/26/2014, 6:45 AM
ALEX BOSS!
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/26/2014, 6:45 AM
10, 5, 4 and 2. Alex Ross has never been appealing to me
TheCrow0029 - 5/26/2014, 6:47 AM
I'm also fine with them bringing back Star-lord's brown hair, because he was a brunette in the DnA run, and then Bendis made him another Cap clone! Plus, the little Chris Pratt hair swoosh is 1000x better than the Bieber style he had going.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/26/2014, 7:00 AM
Oh, can't wait to learn the fate of Richard Rider.
They held that one for a long time for what probably amounts to nothing but starting a new kid Nova and Rider being held by some silly reasons.

The reveal had better be good.
lapress - 5/26/2014, 7:07 AM
I'm pretty sure they were going to stay dead, but with the movie coming out, they brought some of them back from the Cancerverse.
KINGPEN266 - 5/26/2014, 7:22 AM
i like all the covers
Brady1138 - 5/26/2014, 8:11 AM
Man, I love Marvel!
WruceBayne - 5/26/2014, 8:34 AM
I guess since Gaurdians is coming out Marvel is trying to push them to the forefront. That Spidermann 2099 cover is way better than that Gaurdians of the Galaxy cover.
Bl00dwerK - 5/26/2014, 9:00 AM
Daredevil is the only one I like...
pesmerga44 - 5/26/2014, 9:24 AM
My favorites are the Guardians cover and the Original Sin cover.
Natetrix79 - 5/26/2014, 9:54 AM
Alex Ross is something special
marvel72 - 5/26/2014, 11:45 AM
ross is always great,i do like that spider-man 2099 cover.
ScionStorm - 5/26/2014, 1:59 PM
Hulk NIPPLE!

Love that 2099 cover.
staypuffed - 5/26/2014, 3:52 PM
Some fantastic covers in this bunch.
Shadowmaster35 - 5/26/2014, 4:58 PM
Ross you Boss! Can't wait to find out what happened to Nova
MarvelMainEvent - 5/26/2014, 8:19 PM
So beautiful!

I don't dislike any of them and my personal favorites of the group are Spiderman 2099, ASM 1.4, Elektra & Hulk #5.

I miss the days of buying individually but still keep up once the hardcovers are available for each run.
MarvelMainEvent - 5/26/2014, 8:22 PM
Also, I haven't caught up with Original Sin but looks a lot like the Green Lantern guardians. Are there any similarities?
derberg49 - 5/27/2014, 7:03 AM
Ugh. Would someone please break Skottie Young's hands? That is the ugliest Rocket I've ever seen!
Klone - 5/29/2014, 6:16 AM
The last four are amazing.
