Crazy Comic Covers

This one may be more a “technically incorrect” cover versus our normal crazy covers: Hawkeye issue 1 variant cover by Adi Granov. I am a compound bow owner and target shooter so there’s some experience speaking here. Take a look at Hawkeye’s hands on the bow. If he’s planning to shoot the bow sideways as it’s currently being held he…

Oh look, a Batman cover from Francesco Francavilla in that retro pulp style of his.  Very nice.  What’s that?  It’s a Black Panther cover for issue 529?  Wow: DC, get that lawyer patrol on the case. And why is Black Panther still using Daredevil’s issue numbering?

Putting aside any jokes about this being an Oz-like shower scene, this cover is disturbing and hilarious on a number of levels. I like to interpret it as a metaphor: Ed McGuinness is claiming the title of “artist of absurd musculature” from Rob Liefield.

Apparently there was not a single dictionary at the Marvel office in 1975. That is the only reason I can think of for suggesting that circus spelled sideways is death. Also, is that guy throwing live bats as if they were batarangs? PETA is going to be pissed.

This is actually one of my favourite covers, but it doesn’t really make sense. Normally when people talk about cancelling Christmas it is because the have no money, or some disaster has befallen them around December, or they are using it as a hyperbolic threat in punishing a 7 year old. The cover would make it seem that 1. Spider-Man…

Last updated on October 28th, 2011 at 08:22 am The Cover: Unless Lois Lane happened to get freaky-deaky with a Native American at some point in the comics and had a baby real quick, it’s safe to say that she has stolen someone’s baby. I can only imagine years of pining after Superman without any success have finally snapped her…

The Cover: What can I say? It’s Wonder Woman flipping Lois Lane over her head while Superman is sitting on a rock enjoying the show. Why are they fighting? Well, because Wonder Woman is apparently like the bully at the beach who kicks sand in your face and takes off with your girl. Superman is really loving the girl on…

The Cover: Um, I’m not quite sure what else can I say about this cover. Lois Lane seems to have Superman chained down to a table with Kryptonite chains while a crazy looking puppet Superman is being whipped by Lois Lane with a cat of nine tails. Look at that expression on Lois’ face! She’s gone crazy with rage! Why…

The Cover: Obviously Sinestro has become tired of Hal Jordan being known as the playboy of the cosmic seas and is determined to upstage him. Sinestro has bound Hal to some kind of weird yellow table construct that looked like the artist was too lazy to do a proper job of a table. Hal’s ladies seem to be fawning over…

The Cover: I love this cover, we’ve got what appears to be Jean Loring dressed up ina a fancy dress commanding a ragged Hawkman and Atom to work or die! It’s got that whole Egyptian slave thing where they are building a pyramid or something. There’s so many questions to be asked about this cover: Why is Jean batcrap crazy?…

Last updated on October 28th, 2011 at 07:50 am The Cover: Well, it looks like Batman and Superman are begging to be killed because they have some kind of super-secret plan to escape their situation or they have realized that they are in love with each other and since the world won’t accept them, they have decided to enter a…

The Cover: Booster Gold; the used car salesman of the DC universe is laying a pounding on Superman it seems. He’s smushing his face into the mud while Superman’s chin apparently has a water faucet in it judging by the amount of water spewing from it. Maybe Booster Gold slit his throat and Superman bleeds water. The Story: Our tale…

The Cover: Oh Superman, why won’t you stop beating up your teammates? Do they have battered wife syndrome where they keep coming back to you after they beat you up? You would be hard pressed to find a superhero who hasn’t been beaten senseless by Superman. This time, it’s the turn of the Teen Titans to get collectively spanked by…

The Cover: Looks like Superman has somehow gotten himself stranded on some kind of unusual planet where his powers don’t work…for the 100th time. But what’s different this time is that he’s attempting flight with some half-assed glider wings as what appears to be a group of imprisoned slaves beg for help below him. The Story: Our epic tale of…

The Cover: Looks like we have Superman strapped to some kind of crazy love meter that will determine who he loves more; Lois Lane or Lana Lang. Of course, Superman doesn’t know that it’s a love meter and has been told that it’s a “heart-meter”. Totally crude joke, but how much you wanna bet that the love meter works by…

The Cover: Well, The Flash simply seems to be killing someone with his super-speed. How? I got no clue how the Flash is killing this guy, all I can see is that his clothes seem to be flying off. So maybe the Flash is killing him with friction and the heat is going to incinerate him. Or this guy has…
