9. MOON KNIGHT #1

But even with the mystical force of Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the night’s greatest detective save a city that’s as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Marvel’s most mind-bending adventure begins NOW as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New York’s most bizarre mysteries!


8. IRON MAN #23.NOW

Witness the fate of the Uncanny Avengers--who survived the Apocalypse Twins’ plot, and how?


5. DEADPOOL #25.NOW!
(Phil Noto)




First Marvel NOW! title to reach the landmark 25th issue! Avengers doesn’t count. Because. When Deadpool re-killed the reanimated dead Presidents of the United States, Agent Gorman of S.H.I.E.L.D. stiffed him on his well-earned pay. Now, his vengeance is finally wrought! But now that former S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Preston’s consciousness is stuck inside his head, will she be ok with this wreaking? And is all this SHIELD stuff a shameless cash in because of the TV show?

Like the design of Winter Soldiers mask, looks great! Didn't realise Moon Knight was getting another series, that could be interesting, some potential for some good stories there...

Really like the simplistic design of the Silver Surfer cover, will probably try that series
ThePowerCosmic - 12/12/2013, 11:35 AM
Me want that Silver Surfer!
TheWolverine08 - 12/12/2013, 11:36 AM
Savage Wolverine's cover was pretty awesome too.
bluedude - 12/12/2013, 11:38 AM
iron man can not get a good artist can he?
bluedude - 12/12/2013, 11:39 AM
winter soldier, uncanny x-men, amazing x-men
are the best I think
MercwithMouth - 12/12/2013, 11:40 AM
Deadpool, Amazing X-Men, Captain Marvel, Uncanny X-Men and Winter Soldier are [frick]ing awesome!

The rest are shit.
charlie2094 - 12/12/2013, 11:40 AM
@bluedude

Apparently not, the newest Iron Man series has been pretty poor which is really surprising, you think now more than ever that they'd be trying to get great writers/artists on that title
Mothchild - 12/12/2013, 11:41 AM
Sweet art. I like the DD one
Epicboy - 12/12/2013, 11:42 AM
What happend to capt marvel, I thought her comic just started.
ThePowerCosmic - 12/12/2013, 11:43 AM
Intruder

You read my mind!
knocturnalzen10 - 12/12/2013, 11:44 AM
@powercosmic

u know surfer is one of the hardest characters to write for just off his power set only smh he could crush superman........
DanMcNice - 12/12/2013, 11:45 AM
Winter Soldier, Uncanny Xmen and Silver Surfer are my favorite!
Deadpool and Amazing Xmen are cool too.
crawley - 12/12/2013, 11:49 AM
Gusto knows not of the work of the legendary Bill Sinkewicz, the man whose artwork in the original Moon Knight series made the character the cult favorite that he is today.
GizmoEl - 12/12/2013, 11:49 AM
that cyclops one is pretty sick
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 12/12/2013, 11:50 AM
Got to go with SS and DD
lawndart - 12/12/2013, 12:11 PM
I wish Michael Golden was doing more work. Avengers Annual 10 (v1) and his work on "The Nam" was excellent. Always pleased to notice the absense of Rob Liefeld so I guess there's the silver lining. Winter Soldier has my vote out of the 10. The DD cover just looks like someone trying to copy the look of the series in the 80's.
lawndart - 12/12/2013, 12:12 PM
Although after a second look, the weapon he's holding is not the correct size.
Lostcause - 12/12/2013, 12:22 PM
@Epicboy. That was Ms. Marvel. With the Arabic young lady. Carol Danvers is Capt. Marvel. She has the old lighting bolt on her street uni.
Lostcause - 12/12/2013, 12:26 PM
The Cyclops cover will most likly be Frost or "Red". 100% female.
jimoakley666 - 12/12/2013, 12:29 PM
Amazing X-Men, Iron Man, Silver Surfer, Daredevil & Uncanny Avengers covers are beaut.
PsyGuy - 12/12/2013, 12:31 PM
the Black Widow one is pretty awesome too...

Lostcause - 12/12/2013, 12:32 PM
Yes I dig the Black Widow cover too.
staypuffed - 12/12/2013, 12:55 PM
The SS variant is stunning. Wow.
Kyos - 12/12/2013, 1:33 PM
The Silver Surfer one is amazing! Besides that I only like the one with Cyclops, although Deadpool is kinda funny.
GoldenAge88 - 12/12/2013, 1:33 PM
There are so many options for best covers, none of them have been displayed in this article. Kirby, Ross, Lee .... the covers are only as good as their artist, need to seriously read up on that subject.
storyteller - 12/12/2013, 2:31 PM
Okay Marvel, if you want Pepper with Tony then make it happen. Otherwise leave the Pepper and Tony stuff for the damn movies. Though personally you probably shouldn't be introducing your SO to your boss who you sleep with from time to time.
KrazyForKomix - 12/12/2013, 2:44 PM
These covers (and the marketing philosophy behind their creation) are part (JUST PART) of the reason the industries sales continue to plummet. Kids don't like 'em.

Yes, there are probably ten other reasons ALSO. And if they just want to make mini-posters that's fine. They'e doing a good job of that. But if you want your industry to have legs BEYOND being a temporary "source" for the movies, then you need to continue adding new (and that means YOUNG) readers.

Now THOSE are some enticing, I-wanna-pic-you-up covers!
marvel72 - 12/12/2013, 3:23 PM
i'll have to agree,pretty much all of them covers are great.
mob7medina - 12/12/2013, 4:53 PM
Cool Moon Knight and Daredevil Covers Can't wait for the new series
ThePowerCosmic - 12/12/2013, 6:24 PM
knocturnalzen10's

Not really sure what you mean, but i have collected just about every appearance of SS and he is written great and very unconventionally which is why he has never sold very well. He loses a lot unlike Superman which is actually why i like him. He is a symbol of personal self sacrifice and misunderstanding and doesn't succeed all the time.
MarvelWeiner - 12/12/2013, 7:02 PM
damn! the winter soldier and cyclops covers are pussylicious lol
SWelch - 12/12/2013, 7:19 PM
Got say my favorites are Winter Soldier, Daredevil, Silver Surfer and captain Marvel.

Cyclops new mask as of yet grown to my liking. Maybe I'm just old and like the visor.
ComicBookGoth - 12/13/2013, 7:29 AM
That Rivera cover.

the background is essentially a few wonderful lines.

guy never seases to amaze me.











ComicBookGoth - 12/13/2013, 7:30 AM
*ceases
AGoodHonestMan - 12/13/2013, 12:26 PM
The Winter Soldier cover is the best! Wow! I read a Moon Knight comic once...it was insane! Does anyone know why Wolverine is wearing a regular belt now instead of the 'X-Men' one?
13echo - 12/13/2013, 2:55 PM
Have I seen that silver suffer cover somewhere before?!
MightyZeus - 12/14/2013, 1:40 AM
Most of those covers are really cool. Personally The Winter Soldier cover and Moon Knight's cover should have been placed higher on the list.
