Admittedly my favorite comic cover of all time is the #5 issue of Marvel's Transformers, the US title. Which shows Shockwave standing over the battered corpses of the Autobots and writing on hte wall "ALL ARE DEAD". For all time that has been one of the gut-punchingest comic covers of all time I have seen for shock value or other. What makes it eevn more frightening is that the inside pretty much HAS THAT. All of the Autobots but Ratchet are strung up from the ceilign like corpses, Optimus Prime is reduced to a head for nearly a year, and the war for Earth seems over beforfe it has even begun...

It's the cover of "Kick-Ass", Issue #6.

Start reading NOW. I can't begin to tell you how awesome the writing is. Also, a movie version is due out soon.

Then again, knowing most of us here, if a book was just called 'A$$' and was nothing but comic book girls in thongs the entire time, all of us would b uy it. >.>

MarvelFanwhatevernumber, if you're going to post multiple pictures, please post them in the same response. No need to make 5 posts in a row when one post would have handled it just fine
