The Just Us League, Low Batteries, and A Halloween Celebration: Comic Book Covers of the Week 10/22/14

Second Place

Deadpool #36

David Nakayama is the runner-up this week with this cover featuring Deadpool and Iron Man. Iron Man sits on the ground, devoid of all power, resting motionless. All hope seems lost but wait is that Deadpool? Yes, Deadpool is here to recharge his “buddy” Iron Man and save the day. Armed humorously with a USB charge cable our hopeless hero thinks he can power-up old shellhead using any wall socket if only he could figure out where the USB port plugs into Tony’s suit. It is a fun and irreverent cover that is also filled with immense detail on Iron Man’s suit and Deadpool’s outfit. The choice of having the background all-white aides in letting the image stand on its own without being lost with any distracting imagery. All in all, it is funny and humorous while also encouraging us to find out if Iron Man is doomed or if Deadpool will in fact save his iron bacon.

  1. Bronze medal for Harley Quinn # 11, because of my passion for Power Girl.
    Silver medal for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #8, because I love the pop – art – like colouring.
    Gold medal for The Multiversity: The Just # 1, because the idea of laying out the page as if it were a tabloid cover is a stroke of genius that deserves the first prize alone. Not to mention all the question this image raises: who is Sasha Norman? How did Lex Luthor get the keys of the Bat – cave? What happened to the friendship between Batman and Superman?

    • “Bronze medal for Harley Quinn # 11, because of my passion for Power Girl.”
      I especially love the disclaimer at the bottom of this cover: “PLEASE NOTE: This comic contains no actual super-heroics. If you are looking for that, may we suggest you pick up the book to the right of this one.” Simply awesome!

      Thanks for sharing your Rankings.

      • “I especially love the disclaimer at the bottom of this cover” Nice catch GothamRogue, that had passed me by! Now I’m even more convinced this cover deserves the bronze medal.
        “Thanks for sharing your Rankings.” Thank you as well for your reply! : )
