December 2008 – Cover of the Month

There were a whole mess of nominees this time. Big long list of great cover art – and surprisingly, no Batman/Superman titles. There was even an Alex Ross cover (Avengers/Invaders) that didn’t make the nominations cut.

The nominees:

  • Booster Gold #13
  • Captain America #43
  • Rage of the Red Lanterns (Final Crisis) one-shot
  • Ghost Rider #28
  • Kull #2
  • Nova #18
  • Green Lantern Corps #29

While there were lots of choices, I have to pick Rage of the Red Lanterns – the full cover without sidebars. It was done by Shane Davis, Sandra Hope, and Nei Ruffino.  This cover is just outstanding because it is so provocative, upsetting, remarkable, and matches the story.
