Adi Granov: X-Men: Legacy #232 Cover (2010) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 18 FEB 2012

The synopsis for Mike Carey’s second chapter of the Necrosha storyline reads: A classic X-Villain hitched a ride on Destiny’s body when Selene brought her back from the dead. But this villain doesn’t want to be part of the Black Queen’s master plan – He’s got his own agenda!

While penciller Clay Mann was responsible for the interior pencils, cover artist supreme Adi Granov was approached to provide the cover art, and as per usual he whipped up a stunningly beautiful piece of work, featuring a very detailed Rogue and Magneto getting all clingy with one another.

Because of course, who doesn’t want to see characters getting clingy with one another? :P

Chris Bachalo and Tim Townsend: X-Men #190 Cover (2006) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 01 OCT 2011

This very cool but hot piece of cover art graced Marvel Comic’s X-Men issue 190, released in October 2006, courtesy of the illustrious Chris Bachelor together with inker (and general partner in crime) Tim Townsend.

And while the cover might show Mystique and Iceman in a passionate embrace, the synopsis for part 3 of writer Mike Carey’s Supernovas story arc says nothing more than Cable returns to the X-Men and the X-Men battle a brainwashed Northstar and Aurora.

So that doesn’t help all that much in other words. Still, a fantastic example of cover art done beautifully!
