Cover of the Week - Uncanny X-Men

Welcome to another edition of the Cover of the Week, here at the Weekly Crisis. Kirk is once again very busy, this time in preparation with a project for the blog that we will reveal soon, so you get your friendly neighborhood Matt Ampersand again instead.

This week marks an unprecedented event, as all three of us, Kirk, Ryan and myself have gone with the exact same cover as our top choice. What cover could possibly have earned such honors? It is the cover of Uncanny X-Men #512, so hit the jump to see our thoughts about it.


Kirk, Matt, and Ryan's Cover of the Week - Uncanny X-Men #512



Kirk: Love the detail put into the cover, from the double helix filled border to the artificial aged look to everything in between. Just a unique and great looking cover.

Matt: There's a lot to love in this Yanick Paquette cover. The amount of little details, the colors, and the character design. Ultimately, I think the reason it works so well is because it combines all it's elements to tell a story, or at least to introduce the story inside the book.

Ryan: I'm definitely agreeing with everyone on Uncanny X-Men. Simply a gorgeous cover that looks well-worn and pulpy--a perfect fit for the wonderful story contained within.

Runner-Ups: Wolverine: Weapon X #03, Last Days of Animal Man #02, G.I. Joe #06

funnily enough the only cover i'd consider competition for that this week (other than detective comics, which I'm avoiding mentioning as I've gone on about that a bit too much) is the 80s variant for uncanny x-men. if only because I miss mohawked Storm

What? No love for Cosmo and Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy? Now, THAT cover was amazing!

I felt that cover was actually pretty bad. Cosmo barely looks like a dog.

Okay, perhaps I'm letting my love for the cosmic pets overrun my critical eye...
