Each month, hundreds of comics are released to stores for the hungry masses of fans around the world. To stand out on the shelves, you have to put the great art up front. You can judge a book by its cover.
Welcome back to our continuing monthly column, where the covers tell a story of their own. This month, it’s old favourites and some new entrants as we go from Batgirl to Wonder Woman, from the likes of J.H. Williams III, Francesco Francavilla, Amanda Conner and Andrea Sorrentino. Adam Hughes makes communism sexy again, or possibly just hats with stars! Ron Wimberly introduces us to The Mighty Avengers movie that we now need to see in 1970s cinemas everywhere. This is Cover Story.
