COVER SHOTS: The Best From Marvel Comics' September 2012 Solicitations

If any spider is the face of Marvel right now, it's the Black Widow, and it's about time. She's been one of the coolest ladies in the Marvel U for decades, so fingers crossed the teased ReEvolution of Marvel post AvsX finally gifts Natasha with an ongoing series that lasts.

Before Amazing Spider-Man hits theatres and that other web-head spins his attention grabbing comeback, lets checkout the best covers from Marvel's September 2012 solicitations.


If there's one thing Paolo Rivera has majored in since his time on Daredevil, it's simple but blow-the-roof-off-your-eyeballs, brilliant covers. This x-ray scan of the 'man without fear' is just the latest.

Marvel says: The biggest Daredevil story yet begins here! The debut of a new menace in New York – the killer called Coyote! And just how sane IS Matt Murdock?

Marco Checchetto - The Punisher #16 Every time Frank stands in front of a skull it's iconic. Add the suggested death of the woman so recently seemed to be his salvation and it's a killer in itself.
Andy Park - The Thanos Quest #1 Thanos maybe mad, but in the years ahead he's going to be a pretty sought after dude. Marvel, who know a few telepaths, predict this trend, collecting the Quest under Andy's smoin' hot cover.

  1. Yeah I love the new cover to Thanos Quest too. So much in fact, that it persuaded me to buy the Infinity Gauntlet TPB I recently saw at my nearby bookstore. And yes, it was just as good as I remember it being.

    My thing is, while I love Ron Lim's art, how come George Perez dropped out around the 4th issue? Was it because the book would be late if Lim hadn't finished it?

    I really need to get that Thanos Quest trade when it comes out, as it serves as a perfect bookend to Infinity Guantlet.

  2. Hey Dale, thanks for the comments!

    George dropped out of Infinity Gauntlet due to the shit-storm that DC kicked up and created out of the War of the Gods crossover event he'd been planning as part of his highly awesome Wonder Woman run at the publisher. The result saw him quit DC for several years, and he talks about it quite honestly in TwoMorrows' "Modern Masters" book.

    I agree, It would have been nice to see George finish it all off!

  3. Didn't know that. Thanks for the info.
