I like a few of them, but that Savage Wolverine cover is really cool...
grif - 6/21/2014, 6:35 AM
lizard looks [frick]in baked out of his mind
KINGPEN266 - 6/21/2014, 6:44 AM
ELETRA TAKES A BOW AFTER PUTTING DOWN THE SMACKDOWN! LOL
Tao - 6/21/2014, 6:51 AM
Cool beans
MrMartinMarvel - 6/21/2014, 7:01 AM
Lizard's eye also kinda looks like a golf ball for some reason.
bs77 - 6/21/2014, 7:20 AM
Lizard looks like old school Godzilla. Love the Rocket cover. Skottie does cool stuff; like Looney Toons crossed with great 80's comics and a touch of steampunk. Spiderman 2099 is looking like Batman Beyond; why the arm fins? Wolvie stuff is usually great as he seems to get the most attention. I feel like in 100 years framed Alex Ross covers will be fine art worth millions. I'd love a coffe table book of just marvel and dc covers from the last 30 years.
Kyos - 6/21/2014, 7:30 AM
I like stoned Godzilla!
TheBrotherhood - 6/21/2014, 7:34 AM
SPIDERMAN 2099 and ELEKTRA!
TheBuoyWonder - 6/21/2014, 8:19 AM
...I like Ramos' art.
DefcoN - 6/21/2014, 8:23 AM

DrunkenNukem - 6/21/2014, 8:32 AM

MightyZeus - 6/21/2014, 8:37 AM

All hail Marvel.
MercwithMouth - 6/21/2014, 8:45 AM

lexxust - 6/21/2014, 9:19 AM
hate them, they look like paintings not comic book covers
InfiniteMonkey - 6/21/2014, 9:19 AM
DEATH OF WOVERINE!? LMAO!

Like that shit will sell.
We all know that he's coming back within 6 months. Rubbish.

Keep him dead for 20 years and have the fans begging.
Marketing 101 you twits.
MrStarLord - 6/21/2014, 9:36 AM
The Alex Ross Spider-man is great until that stoned lizard.
Seejay - 6/21/2014, 9:58 AM

Still like the Ultimate Comics version of Thor. Hope for a comeback.

ThePowerCosmic - 6/21/2014, 10:30 AM
Elektra is a beautiful book...highly recommend that series! Cover is great!

Dat Thor Cover....whoa!

Spidey 2099 looks fantastic And Rocket too!

Sooooooo sick of Deadpool...Marvel needs to give him a rest. It is just such and obnoxious annoying character.
DrDoom - 6/21/2014, 10:39 AM

marvel72 - 6/21/2014, 11:31 AM

NeoBaggins - 6/21/2014, 1:43 PM
"lizard looks [frick]in baked out of his mind"

LMAO Look at the massive Cotton Mouth action.
eternal - 6/21/2014, 2:24 PM
So Elektra killed a bunch of people, spread roses around, then waited in that pose for the cops to shine a light on her so she could look cool?
Seems legit.
ScionStorm - 6/21/2014, 2:26 PM
Lol Elektra's like "after the Ballet of Death, I take a bow."
staypuffed - 6/21/2014, 4:13 PM
I believe the Spider-Man 2099 cover is by Francesco Mattina.
I absolutely love it (and Alex Ross' two cover)
loki668 - 6/21/2014, 11:53 PM
Well, we know what Curt Connors has been growing in his lab now. It's danky, stanky, and left him with a mouth full of cotton!
Shadowmaster35 - 6/22/2014, 9:58 PM
Alex Ross you always top my list. but the 2099, rocket and elektra covers were awesome too. and of course deadpool.
