    Ditto to Kaluta.

    I can't believe I hadn't thought of Golden. He's done some of my favorite covers ever.

    I don't think it's about buying the book for the cover. It's about a cover making you pick up the book to look at and see if you will buy it.
    In today's world of pre-orders and previews that is not as relevant. Back when we bought books off the spinner racks, a captivating image or cover that told an engaging story would make us look at the book.

    So true. The first two comics I ever bought with my own money were this one--because it had Batman and Robin on the cover (by Infantino & Giella)--


    --and this, because it called out to all Batman fans and not at all because of the Swan & Klein art on the cover--


    --which in turn made me a a fan of Superman comics. So when I saw Superman on the cover of this comic--also by Swan & Klein--I had to have it--


    --and that made me a fan of the Legion and Superboy. And so it goes.

    I recently picked up the hardcovers of 100% and Heavy Liquid and upon seeing his author photo, was struck by how much he looks like one of his characters!

    Pope is one of those guys whose style just doesn't do a thing for me. I'm sure he's great, but ... no, thanks.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."

    Lots of my favorites have been listed, & for that matter a few of my favorite covers (by Infantino, Kubert & Cardy, as it happens) ever have been posted, but yeah, at today's prices the only time I'll ever buy a comic just for the front is if I find it at a deep discount.

    I am a sucker for certain tribute covers, though the same skinflint approach applies.

    Luckily, I was already buying the series regularly when this came out about 3 1/2 years ago ...

    Yeah, I've never really understood the appeal of Pope either. But then, I haven't read Batman 100. Maybe after that I'll catch the bug.

    I'll join in as well. I don't dislike him, but I don't get the love.

    That Art Adams Hela is fing awesome. I think some of that is Hela too. I bought a Thor alternate cover for Hela by Romita, and I don't even care for his art. Adams however I haven't ever seen anything I didn't like.

    I agree. I never really was sold on his interior art but his covers are great. Especially when he draws gals, he's got a good sense of teasing poses. That's a good example you posted.

    I don't think I've bought a cover because of the artists, but because of the cover itself. Like the Hulk ala Where The Wild Things Are I bought that someones already posted or this .... which happens to be the most awesome thing I've seen on a cover ...

    He's actually the reason I started reading House of Mystery. I saw the later of the series which was a lot of I Dracula. His covers caught my eye and sold me before I even knew what was in it.
