The Best Comic Book Covers of June 2018

The strengths of June’s best comic book covers are all over the place, and that’s why we love compiling this monthly feature. Black Cloud #10’s explosive light show is all about showing off colorist Matthew Wilson’s skill set, while Stan Sakai’s Garfield: Homecoming #1 variant is simply a charming, expertly executed illustration from a beloved master of the form. Chip Zdarsky’s logo integration on Sex Criminals #25 captures that title’s off-kilter comedy, but Esad Ribic’s Thor #1 cover provides an unexpected, easily missed dose of humor to the God of Thunder (Mjolnir is a little too powerful to be a bugzapper, big guy). Marcos Martin is one of our repeat offenders this month, thanks to a clever cookie-cutter composition for Multiple Man #1 and the dynamic, evocative Spidey-shadow on Amazing Spider-Man #801, a cover that somehow manages to sum up the character and outgoing writer Dan Slott’s epic run with Peter Parker. Fittingly, Multiple Man actually lands on the list twice, courtesy of a word balloon from Dave Johnson that says what we’re all thinking. Finally, yes, we took the bait—Rob Liefeld gets a spot thanks to an all-pouch character. Hey, we’re only human. Click on the through the gallery above to see which other covers caught our eye this first month of summer.
