New Avengers #59 (Marvel – 2009)
Cover art by Stuart Immonen
I love this cover for many reasons. The pose is terrific with their backs against one another. It also has this breathless tension…they seem desperate. You can almost hear them breathing hard…I imagine Spider-Man gasping for enough breath to utter a one liner. They look pretty beaten and down-right scared as they are surrounded by a hoard of super-villains (just visible in the background). I should also mention the excellent coloring and tight ink-work – it almost looks like animation. It’s just perfect.
