Some other notes...
-A lot of months, it seems like Jim Cheung does very similar things for each of his covers, but he's so good it really doesn't matter--his art is that pretty.
-I haven't read a single issue of the new Azrael series (no offense to the creative team), but it has consistently excellent covers.
-My buddy Ryan "Agent M" Penagos really dug Simone Bianchi's Black Panther cover as did I, even more than we do his usual work, though we can't pinpoint exactly what makes this particular one special.
-I'm with Sean T. Collins: more Steel please.
-Phil Noto is kicking some ass on covers of late.
-Ultimate Thor kicking Ultimate Hulk in the head wins.
