Comic Covers of the Month – March 2013

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy 1 (Phantom variant)
by Humberto Ramos and Edgar Delgado

The phantom variants are only available in a small amount of comic shops across the world. This one for Guardians of the Galaxy is an homage to X-Men 141, “The Days of Future Past”. It also features Thanos the cosmic villain, who looks like he’s going to be a huge deal in both comics and movies in the next few years. ’80s comics references and Thanos, how can you go wrong? Now where can I get myself one of these…

Batman Inc

Batman Incorporated 9 – Spoilers for Batman Incorporated 8
by Chris Burnham

After the death of Damien in last month’s issue, all of DC’s Batman titles remembered Robin through a month of Requiem covers. This cover is by far my favourite of them all. A silhouetted Batman staring sadly into the open grave of his son is a powerful image and a great cover.

New Avengers

New Avengers 4
by Jock

Jock does great covers. His covers for the new ongoing Marvel NOW! series and  New Avengers have been no exception. The cover for the latest issue features a certain Marvel villain (hint: It’s Galactus) and the members of the Illuminati/New Avengers.

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four 5 (Variant)
by Mike Deodato

The current relaunch of Fantastic Four has the family traveling through space and time, and the variant for the fifth issue features the Ever Lovin’ Blue-Eyed Thing staring into the distance. The detail on this cover is great, both on the Thing and the stars.
