Art Attack: October 2010's coolest covers

Trick or treat! Time for the 25 comic book covers for October 2010 that caught my eye through artistic brilliance, provocative design, etc.

Yeah...that's all I got. I'm still tired, folks!

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #647 by Marko Djurdjevic
ASTONISHING X-MEN: XENOGENESIS #5 by Kaare Andrews
DEADPOOLMAX #1 by Kyle Baker
DV8: GODS & MONSTERS #7 by Fiona Staples
GREEN ARROW #5 by Mauro Cascioli
INVADERS NOW! #2 by Alex Ross
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #31 variant by Salvador Larroca

TRON: THE BETRAYAL #1 by Salvador Larroca
ULTIMATE COMICS THOR #1 by Carlos Pacheco
UNCANNY X-FORCE #1 by Esad Ribic
THE UNWRITTEN #18 by Yuko Shimizu

I don't know how onboard I am with Green Arrow's new direction (I'll certainly give it a shot, but I liked the "Arrow Family"), but man, Mauro Cascioli's covers really grab my attention.

One new direction I am very much digging is Paul Cornell's on Action Comics, and I must say David Finch's covers really do give it that extra zing.

And hat tip to my man Alejandro Arbona for at least in part coming up with the clever vampire variant to Invincible Iron Man #31 as perfectly brought to fruition by Salvador Larroca.

Ryan Penagos and I look over all the Marvel covers as soon as they come in each month and for the past year or so noted how many The Hood appeared on, but now it's Man-Thing.

In other words: The Hood was the new Wolverine, but now Man-Thing is the new Hood.

YES LEONEL CASTELLANI!!!

He worked with me on my Kid Occult pitch! I am stoked that he is working at Marvel now!

All the other covers are cool too... I guess...

Naming the 25 "coolest" covers in a single month is like naming the 25 top brands of breakfast cereal.

You know who I feel sorry for? Cover #26.
