Man oh man how I love a good comic book cover! So much that I dedicate blog posts as often as possible focusing on my favorite comic book covers of all time. Well I’m not sure if you remember way back in the 1980’s but they had a string of issues where there was no cover artist. Instead they decided that they’d give us some live action superhero action! Now this sounds like a wonderful idea today, but back then it was a bit more difficult to really get the superhero look down on film. However these issues were ones as a kid I never forgot so let’s take another quick look at those legendary Marvel “photo” covers!
Superman #422 is quite an interesting issue to say the least, Superman battles werewolves! Yeah back in 1986 Superman had a full on battle with some seriously pesky lycans . To me it’d seem like Supes would have no problem kicking a werewolf’s ass-but that’s apparently not in this issue titled “Bad Moon Rising”. He not only gets his ass handed to him but the werewolf, after the beat down, rips off Superman’s costume and dons it himself! Yeah he leaves Superman naked in the streets of Metropolis and what’s even more funny is that Superman’s worried about “being arrested for indecent exposure”!!!
This issue certainly leaves something to be desired (I think it’s awesomely funny as hell though), but it has the most terrifying cover of any Superman comic book, brilliantly drawn by The Killing Joke’s Brian Bolland!! It’s funny how such a creepy cover could contain such a ridiculous comic adventure beneath. One thing is for sure, Bolland doesn’t fuck around when he draws comic book covers-it’s one of my personal faves!
Ever get pissed off because of all of the stupid shitty decisions that people make in horror flicks?! Don’t you just wish they’d do the right thing for once and think like a rational human being?! Well your wishes have been granted in this viral trailer for the fictitious movie Hell No: The Sensible Horror Movie.
This is probably one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen and honestly it’d make for a great full movie if it was done right! Check this out:
This has got to one one of the most hilarious comic covers ever! The idea that Luthor had to defeat his foes was brilliant, turn his enemies into children and kick the shit out of them! Simply genius! Lex proves to be a truly heartless bastard on the cover of Action Comics #466 as he’s shown clocking the kid Superman from behind. What a prick! Still he earns points as one of the nastiest villains of all time for this cover alone!
