Cool Comic Covers 9 – The Man of Steel miniseries

The best reboot of a character. John Byrne was tasked to bring a modern Superman to the 80s. He kicked off his run on the character by taking 6 issues to establish a baseline for everyone. It set up exactly who the character would be, the supporting cast, and the world as it fit in the DCU. The story is filled with creative and intelligent takes on decades old characters, making them feel fresh and modern without betraying everything that came before.

Take some time and find this story. It’s worth it.

Cool comic covers 4 – Uncanny X-Men #138

This was the first X-Men comic I ever purchased. It was at a 7-eleven on the road to Busch gardens. I knew nothing of these characters. After this, I began collecting comics seriously. I needed more. It lead to comic shops, conventions, drawing seriously, and much more. All from the issue after the key issue of phoenix’s death.

I don’t feel nostalgia for it. This cover is always living in my mind. John Byrne would quickly become an emulated favorite artist.

The colors are the big thing for me. The layout and design are interesting. There is a story being told. And look at all the characters. A lot of body language, especially with Xavier and colossus.
