Reimagining Comic Book Cover Art

I came across Covered about two months ago, and it has quickly become one of my favourite blogs. Its premise is simple: a large number of contributing artists create new versions of old comic book covers. Many incorporate their own unique styles and techniques into it, making it more of a reinterpretation, while others keep close to the original. It's a lovely idea. It's so fun to look through all of the different ideas its contributors are coming up with. It's very often a series I've never heard of, so I end up discovering new comics as well as new artists. Below are a few of my favorites, but really check it out for yourself! The site updates fairly frequently- a few times a week, usually. Be sure to look into all the artist websites; there are some extremely talented people here!
