COVER SHOTS: The Best From Marvel Comics' June 2013 Solicitations

Artist Joe Mad is back drawing a Spider-Man who looks like a spider-man! Only he's doing it in the pages of Savage Wolverine, and it guest stars Elektra. Joe on Elektra (sigh) remember when creative teams seemed like they stayed on a book for life? Hopefully this story arc goes for more than three issues. Speaking of threes, here are the best three covers from Marvel's June 2013 solicitations.

COVER OF THE MONTH: SIMONE BIANCHI - THANOS RISING #1

Surely now Thanos is a fan sensation with his role in the 'even ya Nana saw it' Avengers movie' we can get a hit Silver Surfer series up and running? Look for this mini to not only sell gangbusters, but with Simone on art, to look darn sweet in the process.

Journey Into Mystery #653

Okay so I'm a pretty big Beta Ray fan, granted. But I really wanted to spotlight again the awesome work that has been going on the covers to Journey Into Mystery lately. Lady Sif, and Thor's supporting cast, have rarely looked better.

All New X-Men #12

Kinda helps to have a healing factor when your favourite flame is a cosmic entity of fire huh? "It's okay Jean" says Wolverine, "I've been burnt before." Awww. See? Even without his claws Logan cuts to the heart.

  1. That Beta Ray cover with Sif would look awfully nice on my wall right next to Thor.

    'Nuff said.

  2. I'm thinking it would too Random. I'm hearing allot of great things about JIM at the moment. Next time I'm in the city, I might have to look up a few recent back issues!
