  1. I really like UXM # 446.
    First of all, in the foreground there’s a female character holding two giant smoking guns: her presence gives the cover an action packed vibe I absolutely adore.
    Secondly, the use of shadows is simply perfect. I especially appreciate the artistic choice of covering with shadows the head of the woman, because this compels us to open the book in order to see her face.
    Thirdly, I love the fact that the colourist used as much red as possible. This artistic choice helps building an even more ominous atmosphere.
    The other gold medal goes to Flash # 121, because I love the fact that we’re seeing the scene through the eyes of the sniper.

    • “I really like UXM # 446.”
      An amazing image that succeeded in getting me interested for the issue. I look at the shadowed figure and the first detail that my eye zooms in on is the X logo on her uniform. Here is a fellow X-Man that has turned on her teammates. What could the reason be? Who is she? Yeah, this issue certainly earns my runner-up award with UXM #438 bringing in third with its melancholy yet serene scene.

      “The other gold medal goes to Flash # 121, because I love the fact that we’re seeing the scene through the eyes of the sniper.”
      I thought for sure you’d go for Annual #10! Oh well… For me my runner-up is #128: The Flash, his back against the wall, as his Rogues gather to put the hurt on. 3rd Place goes to #125 on the back of its unusual perspective.

      Thanks, as always, for sharing your selections.

      • “I thought for sure you’d go for Annual #10! ” That cover gets the silver medal.
        “3rd Place goes to #125 on the back of its unusual perspective.” This cover is my bronze medalist as well.
        “Thanks, as always, for sharing your selections.” Thank you as well for your replies! : )

  2. I thought Flash vol 2 #131 was good as well, with Flash stopped in his tracks, in a wheelchair and his foot in a plaster cast. A very intriguing cover and makes you want to read it right way to see what’s happening in the issue. Uncanny X-Men #449 was my top pick in this selection, with Storm basking in the full glory of the storm she has created, a stunning cover!
