COVER SHOTS: The Best From IDW Publishing's June 2012 Solicitations

As if yesterday's post didn't tell you, IDW are hitting 2012 hard with a whole new range of wallet tempters, looking in your general direction. KISS and Mars Attacks! both kick off in June, bringing all the usual suspects from IDW's star-studded line back with them. Of all the covers in the IDW June 2012 solicitations, these five take top honours;

COVER OF THE MONTH: DAN DUNCAN - TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #11

For characters that have been on every kind of merchandise you can think of (and even some you can't) finding a decent fresh take on the TMNT can be pretty tricky. Not so here!

IDW say: The Turtles bring in a surprising new ally to storm the Foot Clan lair! Meanwhile, will Splinter escape the Foot? He'll have to get through the Shredder first! It's a rematch centuries in the making, don't miss it! W: Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman A: Dan Duncan.

CLOSE CONTENDERS: (Click to enlarge):

Mars Attacks! #1 - With 55 covers, each sporting one of the original trading cards and the art of Wally Wood, Bob Powell and Norman Saunders, it's like a collectible card series in comic book form!
Doctor Who Classics Series IV #5 - I'm a fan of the early Dr's. Heck I even remember the theme tune giving me chills as a kid. This cover by John Ridgway nails the suspense and craziness of that era here.

Rocketeer Adventures 2 #4 - The final issue of this mini series goes out with a blast under this Darwyn Cooke cover!
Transformers More Than Meets The Eye Vol1 Alex Milne was born to draw robots - just look at this guy! What I wouldn't give to see posters of the G1 stars done in his style!
