This Top 10 list was originally published in CBG in 2007. Take it away Tony!
Tony here. I was dreading this moment, the moment when my editors would ask me to pick my 10 favorite comic-book covers, the moment when I would realize that I could do no such thing. Y’see, I have been reading comics since I was 4 years old and I am considerably older than that now. Those years represent a whole lot of covers. Trying to pick my 10 favorites would take me months and likely make my head explode.
So you’re not getting my 10 favorite covers; you’re getting 10 of my favorites. I chose the first ten I thought of that deserved to be among my favorites and put them in chronological order because I can be as anal retentive as anyone. The only restriction I gave myself was that all the covers had to be from comic books I bought for myself when they were first published.
