1.)Hulk King-Size Special #1 by Jim Steranko. No other image captures the Hulk's strength and persistence better!
2.) Tales From The Crypt #23 by Al Feldstein. Al Feldstein is my favorite horror artist of all time - his use of heavy lines and vibrant colors captures the look of horror like noone else!
3.) No list would be complete without a Jack Kirby cover, and IMO, Avengers #4 is the definitive Kirby cover! I mean c'mon, he's the KING!
4.) I remember picking up this issue when I was a kid and being absolutely blown away by this John Romita cover; it was so dark & mysterious - you had to look inside!
5.) Bob Layton does a perfect job of capturing the inner torment of a man gripped by alcoholism; those eyes are haunting!
6.) Nobody portrays animated corpses these days any better than Arthur Suydam; I especially love this take on the first appearance of Ironman with the rusting metal and rotting flesh!
7.) As a kid, my favorite cartoon was the Superfriends episodes that featured "The Legion of Doom". I always enjoyed how each hero had an "evil" counterpart. Alex Ross does a fine job of illustrating the duality of the super hero for this cover of "Justice Vol. 2.
9.) Steve Ditko knew how to cram as much action into one cover as possible! In this, the first appearance of the Green Goblin, Spidey fans knew that they had just met his greatest foe!
