    Much of this thread is personal favorite covers or books, not that there is anything wrong with that.

    But it's amazing that no one has posted this yet.

    I always really liked this one. worstblogever once commented that he thinks it's not a very powerful cover, because it could have featured a snippet of the action featured in the book, instead of the image of Kitty crying while carrying her suitcase.

    But I like it a lot, and when I saw it in the comic book store, it made me curious as to its contents, back when I had not read a lot of pre-1985 X-Men comics.

    Okay, so I admit the ad at the top of the cover is not very elegant, and I had to take a look in my stuffy old boxes to find out how the Dutch publishers of this comic's translation handled things: they basically left the entire part where the ad would be in the same colour green as the rest of the wall. It gets filled up a bit by the over-sized De X-Mannen title, and the 'Juniorpress presenteert' ('Juniorpress presents') line.

    You notice it's head covers up the knee. Serendipity strikes!
    Cool, thanks for posting that. I'm having trouble getting images to work with the site I usually use, photobucket.

    So many great covers have been posted, I can't keep them all in my head or even quote them all - Frazetta, Starlin, Kirby, Cardy, the Infantino/Anderson Spectre, Hernandez ....

    That reminds me: is Nick Cardy mainly known for his cover work or did he ever have a long stint on the interiors of a series. Looking at his wiki article, I was thinking the best bet for me would be DC horror anthologies like House of Mystery, etc, in which he seemed to do a fair bit of artwork. And I see there's an Art of Nick Cardy book out as well - anyone seen it?

    I love those Spectre covers but have a sneaking suspicion the stories inside might be a let-down... I should try them sometime, though.

    Starlin was such a great cover and interior artist in the 70s, but I haven't enjoyed his later work nearly as much.
