Top 100 Comicbook Covers – #100

I’m going to rescan many (eventually all?) of my comic collection’s cover images in “Retina Ready” resolutions and High Quality settings with low compression. See here for the technical specs:

So I decided to share my Top 100 here -one cover per post as I have time. I’ll try to do at least one a day. This is in count-down style starting with 100 and working my way up to my number one favorite of all time. Now do understand I only considered books that are already indexed and scanned in my current collection as of right now. Many great books are NOT yet part of the 5,000 or so I currently have covers scanned for.

100-X-Treme X-Men-35-Salvador Larroca

Number 100:

X-Treme X-Men #35 (Marvel Comics – 2004)

Cover art by Salvador Larroca
Colors by Liquid!

This is a great example of Larroca’s stuff where they colored directly over his pencils with NO INKING whatsoever! Awesome and clean. I like the black costumes….Storm is rocking the short hair and Rogue is sexy and confident. What’s not to like? Check back tomorrow night for #99.

  1. That cover’s OK, I guess, but it doesn’t really pop to me. It just feels very generic.

  2. Well it IS at the bottom of my 100 favorites (and that’s only out of 5,000 or so I currently have scanned). But I like it. Not a lot of Larroca I don’t like.

  3. I like the costume (stealth mode/army gear) of the team here! It gives a real image of power!
