I Can’t Cover What I Am – The Best Pieta Covers!

by  in Comic News Comment

In this feature, I spotlight comic book covers that follow a specific theme. Here is an archive of all the cover themes we’ve spotlighted so far.

This week, we will take a look at what I think are the ten coolest comic covers that are similar in design to the famous Pieta statue by Michelangelo!

Enjoy!

First, here’s the statue…


Now, the covers!!

Here is probably the most famous one, by George Perez!


Perez cited this Kirby cover as his inspiration…


This classic Batman cover currently factors into Grant Morrison’s Batman run…


John Byrne contributed this classic cover to the Dark Phoenix Saga…


Here’s an odd, but cool, one by Frank Miller…


Uh oh, Sgt. Rock sure stepped in it!


Tomahawk wants a piece of the child-killing action, too!!


Here’s a funny Doug Mahnke cover…


Here is a trippy Flash cover…


And of course, the clearest, most famous Pieta cover!


That was my ten picks!

Who would your ten picks be?

What theme should I do next?
