Top 100 Comicbook Covers – #01

Click the cover below to load a super high-resolution 1322×2048 version:

001-Uncanny X-Men-141-John Byrne

Number 01:

Uncanny X-Men #141 (Marvel – 1980)

Cover art by John Byrne
Inked by Terry Austin

Finally we reach number 01 in my Top 100 Favorite Comic Cover count-down! This truly is my favorite cover ever. It’s a desperate and dramatic scene as a spotlight is shined on the mutant fugitives Wolverine and Kitty Pryde. The Days of Future Past storyline is a fantastically dark SCI-FI X-Men tale and this iconic image is like a beautiful movie poster for it. It will be nice if the new movie version is even half as good!

Just because the count-down is complete doesn’t mean my frequent posting of high rez scans is over. Not at all. I plan to continue with more covers, mini-reviews, interior panel scans and more! So please check back often.

  1. I hoped the number 1 would be from the Days of Future Past. 😀

  2. Definitely one of the most iconic comic covers ever. It’s been homaged and parodied plenty. And it’s definitely effective.
