I'm a big fan of DVD commentaries, so it was cool to read Jim's thoughts on the covers showcased in last week's "WildStorm Fine Arts Spotlight on Jim Lee." Inside, Scott Williams wrote up a nice introduction on being a fan of his art, plus Alex Sinclair gave a peek into his coloring process and even recolored a few pieces, including this cover above. He kept the original '90s coloring, but still managed to update it with his usual "Sinc-isms."
IIRC, the first time I saw this image was as an insert poster in an issue of "Inside Image" and later on, as the cover of the SNES WildC.A.T.s game. Anyone play that videogame? Oh, and it was also used on the cover of a Toy Fair giveaway comic too. They're all in their full-on "Image" poses and I always liked the extra tech on Zealot and the backwards cap on Grifter.
Also, in this month's DC comics, Art Director Extraordinaire, Mark Chiarello, asks "what's the best cover that has ever appeared on a DC comic?" and it made me wonder the same thing for WildStorm's comics. So what do you guys and girls out there think? Is WildC.A.T.s Vol. 1 #1 your favorite cover? Did Gen13 Vol. 1 #12 give you a warm, fuzzy feeling? Or do you consider WildC.A.Ts/X-Men: The Golden Age #1 a work of art?
Tell us which issue holds the title for Best WildStorm Cover and why you think so below. And that includes all of WildStorm's imprints too, like ABC, Cliffhanger and Homage titles.
