A Rash of Good Covers
« on: 18 July, 2007, 07:46:43 PM »
We've had some very good covers for the last few weeks and it got me to thinking that this has been a very good year... for 2000AD covers... a very good year... for thrill powered pics...

On the whole, they seem to have a bit more about them.  Just an observation.  In some voting for best cover I've picked between 2 or 3 faves.  It would be much tougher this time around.

I meant to say, please add your own so far if you feel so inclined.

They've been very good, although a little more mature than recent in my opinion.  As I said in another thread, I'm having to hide the prog from the kid due to the cover.

Pretty much as WoD said. My favourite cover that comes to mind is the Defoe by Vince Locke, which ironically I felt embarrassed to be buying because of the gore.

When I was in hospital the cover of prog 1538 really cheered me up.(the close up of Dredds boots)
I really like this weeks provocative image too, when I bought it this morning the girl in the newsagents looked at it twice, which has never happened before :)

I'm with Satchmo on this one. The 'boots' cover has been my favourite one this year- and there have been some bloody crackers so far.

At first I didn't agree but then I had a look back and all the ABC Warriors ones, the first Detonator X Flint's Greysuit and that lovely Jock one from 1540 have all been bloody good.

What chores?

  I will choose the psychedelic cover of 1544 then 1545 as a lot of work has gone into this cover to create that amount of realism.

1536.

Full of Flinty goodness. And its a wraparound?

How can it not be the best?

How?
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

I've got the original artwork for that nicely framed above my monitor!

For me it's either:

Simon Coleby's baby cover;
Flinty's 50 years of Dredd;
Jocks Scots;
Percival's zombies.

All are lovely for different reasons! You're right Paul, it really is a year for great covers.

Just if people missed it the first time, here is the (much better) uncoloured cover to prog 1536.
