26 Of The Best Comic Book Covers Of All Time

Book Riot has talked about the best comic book artists working today and what makes a great cover in general. Now, it’s time to present 26 of the absolute best comic book covers of all time!

Because I am terrible at ranking things, I’ve just put them in chronological order. I’ll start with a few age-old classics that have been referenced and parodied a thousand times, then move on to the modern masterpieces that deserve their own place in comics history.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at some fantastic—and sometimes historic—comic book covers!


Wonder Woman #46 (1990)

This is not your typical Wonder Woman story (it’s about a teenage girl who loses her friend to suicide), so it needed an atypical cover to go with it. Jill Thompson handily delivers with this piece.

JLA/Avengers #3 (2003)

George Pérez is the undisputed champion of drawing massive crowds of people while still managing to make everyone look distinct. Nowhere is this more evident than his (and Tom Smith’s) covers for the JLA/Avengers crossover event.
