Avengers Vs X-Men #1
Avengers Vs X-Men #1
by Jim Cheung (June 2012)

When a young mutant threatened to become the new incarnation of the deadly Phoenix Force, the Avengers and X-Men came into conflict over how to deal with the situation. Few artists could handle such a plethora of characters on one cover but Jim Cheung did so with distinction, managing to get across both the tension and danger of the two teams facing off against each other.

Hawkeye #1
Hawkeye #1 by David Aja
(Vol 4 #1 August 2012)

Marvel's covers have become increasingly stylised over the last few years as artists push the boundaries of exciting design. Writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja have produced one of the most adventurous Marvel comics for decades with Hawkeye, and while each issue has a fabulous high-concept cover, the debut issue set the scene.

The Infinity Gauntlet #1
The Infinity Gauntlet #1
by George Perez (July 1991)

The Infinity Gauntlet was one of Marvel's first big comic book blockbusters, bringing together a host of the company's greatest heroes to save the universe from the cosmic menace of Thanos. George Perez produced a stunning piece of work for the debut issue. The piece not only established the threat but also the sheer scale of the event.
