  1. Fearless Defenders #5 was definitely a great cover. A great sense of whimsy, but also a bit of a hint at what was inside. Also memorable were X-Factor #258 and Uncanny X-Force #6.

    • I also appreciate great covers that hint at what is to come. What really annoys me is when a cover depicts an event that doesn’t even happen inside. It’s supposed to be a tease not a lie… Thanks for the comment and providing your selections. Much appreciated!
