  1. It was a really, really hard task to choose the best Flash cover. The ones that struck me are:

    – Flash # 59, because I love romantic stories. I also appreciate that in this cover the superhero is a prey instead of being a hunter, as it usually happens. As you know, I also appreciate unusual colouring choices, so the pink clouds are another detail that really pleased my eye.

    – Flash # 61, because it’s a very tense and uptight action packed cover, with Flash dangerously running onto the Brooklyn Bridge, holding a terrified priest with his right arm. The unusual perspective is another huge plus of this cover: if you look under the bridge, this cover makes you feel dizzy, and it takes a really talented artist to stir up such a vivid emotion.

    – Flash # 63, because of the amazing background and the question – raising presence of a baby Flash next to our hero.

    – Flash # 65, because that picture on the left makes me think that this issue is going to focus on the superhero’s private life, instead of being the same old “superhero vs villain” story.

    My podium is:

    Bronze medal: Flash # 65
    Silver medal: Flash # 59
    Gold medal: Flash # 61

    As for the X – Men, I pick the Annual, because when I saw Jubilee with her Generation X costume my heart missed a beat. I miss that series sooo much.

    • “Bronze medal: Flash # 65
      Silver medal: Flash # 59
      Gold medal: Flash # 61”
      You floored me! I thought for certain that #59 was going to capture your first place crown, more certain then I’ve been in other weeks. For me Silver Medal goes to #65 and Bronze to #59. Thanks for all the detailed breakdowns of the four issues. It was like getting four editions of Retroactive in one! 🙂

      “As for the X – Men, I pick the Annual, because when I saw Jubilee with her Generation X costume my heart missed a beat.”
      And for me #368’s takes the cake. I love the creepy shadowed figure of Wolverine, ready to get revenge on Magneto.

      Thanks, as always, for sharing your selections.

  2. Awesome, I choose Flash Vol II #66 as well, with Flash Vs Aquaman to a race. Its such a funny cover. I like how Aquaman is standing with his arms folded & having nothing to do with the race, brilliant fun! I really liked Uncanny X-Men #368 with the showdown between Magneto and Wolverine. Wolverine looks really menacing, looming over the wounded Magneto, makes you want to find out what happens! Just noticed that I’ve picked two covers that have a kind of Vs theme to them, one humours, while the other is serious. Great Retroactive! Have a nice weekend 😀

    • #368 nearly took 1st place for me. I kept flip-flopping between it and my eventual selection. Wolverine has never looked so sinister!

      Thanks for providing your picks and I hope you an awesome weekend as well. 🙂
