Number 97:

Secret Invasion #3 (Marvel – 2008)

Cover art by Gabriele Dell’otto

Brian Michael Bendis’s epic Marvel Event “Secret Invasion” was a cool sci-fi mini-series (with a ton of tie-ins & cross-overs naturally) involving the alien Skrulls taking over earth by replacing many well-known super-heroes. Many of the covers featured art reminiscent of 50’s & 60’s sci-fi films and pulp magazines. I loved it. The cover to issue 3 by painter Gabriele Dell’otto is no exception. I love the upside-kiss pose. Spider-Woman’s hair flowing down and her hands/fingers are poking at him like a…well, like a spider. Iron Man has his visor up and he looks beaten/tired and ready to give in to her “attack”. The colors are striking and the logo is at once cool and over the top Roger Corman B Movie. This cover is perfection in comic art. How the heck did it get way down here at number #97???

Check back later today/tonight for #96 in the count-down of my favorite comic-book covers.


  1. The event was underwhelming, but that cover’s definitely nice.
