Top Five Dennis Calero Covers

Here are the top five Dennis Calero covers!



Calero has a real eye for photorealism, – he does not make them too blocky. I dig it. That makes him a great call for licensed work. He did a number of good Sliders covers when he was just breaking into comics, and he continues his strong licensed work today with this recent Star Trek cover.


This is a striking cover for the Unique hardcover that Calero worked on with the great Dean Motter.


This is the first of two Legion covers by Calero on the list – I really like how Supergirl pops on the cover without going overboard.


This Legion cover, though, is a lot more striking – very compelling visuals.


This variant cover for X-Men: Noir (written by Fred Van Lente), though, I think is by far the tops for Calero – what a brilliant use of negative space and silhouette.

Just awesome.

That’s the Top Five! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!


I was really impressed by Calero during his stint on the Legion. I’d be happy for him to be the regular artist on the title. (Not that I had/have any complaints about Kitson or Manapul.)

I love Calero’s NOIR series. His new TROJAN WAR cover work started out weak, peaked at TW 3 (his best cover ever) and I can’t wait to see TW4.

His Star Trek art looks like pictures of the cast with a photoshop filter run across them. In other words; it’s awefull.
