1st - Meg 434: Angelic, by Cliff Robinson & Dylan Teague
Cliff & Dylan surely are cover royalty, and we get a great sense of the barren Cursed Earth with the muted color palette. nuFink and nuRatty take center stage, clearly, but somehow Pa and Link don't get left behind. It's a masterful piece of storytelling in a single splash. I really like covers that match the narrative of the story inside, rather than generic floaters.





2nd - Meg 431: Megatropolis, by Dave Taylor
Beautiful noir-tech lighting frames the characters. Despite the massive city-scape, like Blade Runner, it's oppressive, not freeing. The roadways further focus us on the center and trap the characters: behind them a precipice, in front a darkened, threatening tunnel.





3rd - Meg 429: Dreadnoughts, by John Higgins
Part of the appeal here is the grimness of the imagery, and its reflection of present-day police brutality. This cover demands that you engage with the content as it leads you down from the hero pose to the bloodied victims.

Tricky, this year, because that’s a great line-up. As ever, I’m going for what for me makes a great cover, rather than just a great image.

1. 435: Such a striking image with that hideous devil looming over Devlin Waugh
2. 437: Eye-catching. Great contrast with the peace (flowers) vs violence (bullet/Dredd silhouette). Daringly different.
3. 434: Excellent storytelling and rendering. Dynamic poses. Fink looks right into your soul.

HMs for 433 (vibrant and exciting Dark Judges action) and 429 (the beginning of the end for democracy, creeps).

1. 429
2. 431
3. 434

Though as usual, I'd like to take this opportunity to say that Meg covers would be so much more impressive if you could actually see them on the shelves- and not just a grey rectangle.

1. 432 - Amazing that we still get these incredible Robinson covers on the Meg and Progs.
2. 438 - Really like the stub gun and MC1 details.
3. 428 - Love the creep perspective on this one.

HM: 437 - Everything MacNeil is gold!

437 Macneil
434 Robinson and Teague
431 Taylor

Some strong contenders missed out with 439 Carter, 432 Robinson and Teague, and 429 Higgins unlucky to miss out

1. 437, Scrawling the walls. Love this! Simple and very effective.
2. 431, Badges of Honour. One of my favourite thrills this year and a great cover to boot!
3. 434, The Redlands Raider. Lovely composition of some old favourites revisited.

Very curious to see the results this year!

Tricky choice again! I'm going:

1 - 437: McNeil's Daring cover is just genius.
2 - 429: Great colour palette (reminds me of Higgins of old) and a striking, well considered image. Totally tells the story.
3 - 436: Gotta love a balls to the wall all action lawmaster image. Fantastic stuff!
