Cover Theme Game for 3/28

Every week you’ll get a brand-new comic cover theme game! The game works like this: I’ll show you three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, a connection between all three characters, a locale, a creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” “They are all Avengers (who ISN’T?)!” “They’re all dead (who HASN’T been killed off?)!” “They’ve all been cloned (who HASN’T been cloned?)!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers. The connections will ONLY have to do with comic books (so no “they share the same last names of Vice Presidents,” etc.).

If you come up with an answer that works outside of what I intended, I’ll give you credit (well, provided I think it fits, of course).

One more thing – if there are floating heads on the cover, ignore them! They don’t mean anything! Same thing with corner boxes!

If you think you know the answer, e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t answer in the comments. This way, people who check in at different times of the day can still get credit for answering it correctly!

Here is an archive of all the past cover theme games, plus their answers. Before each new installment, I’ll post the answers to the previous week’s game.

Good luck and enjoy!





One thing I’ve always wondered — who names their kid Shinobi?

Holy crap . . . I got two of those comics again! And it probably won’t help me again!

BTW, I really can’t recommend that last issue enough. You’d think a Brit like Paul Jenkins wouldn’t be able to tap into baseball, let alone the Mets mythos, but he does a great job.

Man, I can’t get enough of the Kubert brothers on the X-Books. I really hope Adam jumps on an X-book post-AVX (WotXM, maybe? He does fit the style the book has established and I doubt Nick Bradshaw will be able to come back after the next Bachalo run), but his brother Andy still hedges him out as one of my favorite X-Men artists. Something about these issues back in the day, like the one above, is just awesome. You can’t beat him and Joe Mad! doing the core books at the same time.

But yeah, no idea how these covers are related, but it’s nice to see Brian pick out some awesome covers week after week lol
