COVER SHOTS: The Best From Image Comics' June 2012 Solicitations

Not only in June, do Image Comics continue to pump out brand new hits for you to devour and crave, but Liberty Meadows - an all too absent friend - returns for one month only, plus Spawn has a bit of a 20th birthday shindig. Of all Image Comics' June 2012 solicitations, these four covers take the birthday boy's cake.

COVER OF THE MONTH: TED MCKEEVER with DANA MORESHEAD - MONDO TP

For a three issue mini series about powers evolved from genetically modified chicken, Mondo sure had awesome covers. This pop-art portrait of the series' rage-filled antagonist, see the collected edition and it's extras continue that tradition.

Image Comics say: What starts off a meek chicken stuffed with melancholia, turns decidedly steamed, broiling along until it mutates into a body of pure destructive anger.
This is MONDO, the jam-packed 'roid-raging trade, with over 100 pages that combines all three issues of the twisted dark comedy series, plus a plethora of unused art, doodles, and odious stuff that was too unfit to appear in the regular monthly run. Golden Age sized format.

CLOSE CONTENDERS: (Click to enlarge):
Spawn #220 - Todd McFarlane (Savage Dragon #1 Homage Cover) Todd returns as both cover artist and co-writer! To celebrate, he salutes the other Image title that has defined 'creator-owned' for just as long, Savage Dragon!
Creator Owned Heroes #1 - Phil Noto and Kevin Mellon Two strips - one book! Steve Niles and Mellon do post apocalyptic rebels hunting paradise in American Muscle. While Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Phil Noto's genetically modified assassin, uncovers a conspiracy over the human race in Triggergirl 6!

Liberty Meadows TPB - Frank Cho The first three years of the strip that launched a career are now collected and digitally remastered! If only there was still time for a crossover with Bone!
Fatale; Vol1 Death Chases Me TPB - Sean Phillips This series ranks in my top four comics every month, and that could easilly be based on Sean's covers alone. Just look at this one!
