I like this Jock cover for Savage Wolverine. One because it’s just really pretty. Two because it’s not just a pinup of Wolverine. And three because usually it’s in good taste to have three things to say.
But yeah I wish more covers were kind of more about creating a mood, than just putting pinups of characters on the cover. It’s something I like about music covers right now, is that you can flip through like pitchfork, and it’s page after page of images that have a design sense, and convey to you what the album is, without telling you exactly what it is.
Just as a changeup. I think we’ve exhausted the pinup cover.
I’d also like to see more photography in comic covers.
