This one was a really tough choice. Both of the Irredeemable covers this Paul Azaceta cover and this one by Dan Panosian are absolutely stellar. And I didn't think I was *ever* going to say this, but these amazing Fables covers by Joao Ruas make me not miss James Jean so much!

But even in the face of some stiff competition.... mmmmm Darwyn. We love you the most.

We are huge fans of Mike Del Mundo's latest cover and also this Batman: Widening Gyle cover by by Bill Sienkiewicz... but really, who could deny yet another amazing cover by the incredible Dave Johnson?

You rock, Dave!

it's another tough week for the staff to pick our most beloved comic cover, what with a killer J.G. Jones cover for First Wave, our absolute favorite True Story Swear to God cover, and this amazing Jonah Hex cover by Billy Tucci. But mmmm... Becky Cloonan gets our tastebuds tingling and delivers up another DEMO cover we adore!

Could we be prouder?

We couldn't be happier to see our guy picked up by one of our favorite publishers and hitting the bigtime!
