NOTE: If you're viewing this from the forums, the page is compressed so that it splits up some of the images. You may want to view this from the blog page, for better effect. Thanks. -cb :)
Anytime multiple covers are used to form one image, I think that's cool. I thought I'd try to put some of them together here. I'll update this blog as I go along. Thanks for checking it out. :)
|New Teen Titans #37 & Batman and the Outsiders #5|
|This is one of my all time favorite linking covers, just because I was reading both of these series as they came out. The link isn't real easy to see in the smaller images. If it wasn't for the mud thing grabbing Raven, it'd almost look like they don't link here.|
|They don't match up perfectly, but I like this image. The color change in the background is cool, but I think I'd have rather had a unified color back there. Still, it's the LSH vs. the Fatal Five - how cool is that?|
|Outsiders #1(alpha) & #1(omega)|
|Other than a few of those pink and white energy bubbles floating from one cover to the other, this image is pretty much totally linked by the background, which matches up pretty much perfect, from the looks of it.|
|The Legion #19-23|
Brainiac 5's elbow crosses from 19-20, and the Universo's cape crosses from 21-22, but it's off. This doesn't do a great job of connecting, but it is a connected image. Another case where a unified color scheme in the background would've helped out a lot.
I got these covers right here on CV, and I'm wondering if the edges of the scans are chopped. B5's elbow doesn't match up well, and neither does Universo's cape. If it wasn't for the streams of numbers from 19-20 and 22-23, I'd almost say these don't match up. This is beautiful art, but it's not great as an interconnected image.
|Deathtrap: Titans #12-13; Vigilante #5-6; Teen Titans #70|
|The matches are just slightly off in a few spots, but this is pretty good. I kind of like the letterbox look to this. Got the cover images from CV.|
|I'm not sure why I had to skew this one to get it to match up, because the images were exactly the same size. Got these virgin art images from the Deathtrap story arc images on CV, and I think there's a little chopped off the edges, or this would have matched up.|
Batman Annual #27; Detective Annual #11.
This looks perfect. It matches up great. Personally though, I prefer the original Azrael costume.
Justice League of America #233-236.
This matches up nice, from left to right, but the top and bottom are off. You'd have to overlap the top covers with the bottom to get it matched up right - you can see the tips of the mask in the bottoms of the top two covers. As a kid, I wished I could frame these covers as one image. <sigh> Still don't like it that they killed Vibe, just to replace him later with his brother. "Reverb?" Try "Retread." Loved the villains, the Cadre though.
Supergirl Plus #1; Superboy Plus #1.
I love this image, and especially love the team-ups here - it's a perfect idea, even if the story was a little...off, somehow.
Secret Origins #33-35.
It doesn't match up quite right, but this is a decent image.
|Spider-Man 2099 #16; Ravage 2099 #15; X-Men 2099 #5; Doom 2099 #14; Punisher 2099 #13|
|Discovered this one by accident. I was editing Would U Buy It #15, when I noticed that the backgrounds match up (mostly - it's a little off due to my subpar MS Paint skills).|
Detective Annual #1 ; Question Annual #1; Green Arrow Annual #1.
Thanks to Donovan Montgomery for pointing out this cover combo, and for helping me figure out which order was correct. The mist at the bottom isn't very consistent from cover to cover, so made it difficult to figure out for a few minutes. Thanks, Donovan!
Secret Invasion: X-Men #1-4.
Thanks to The Dark Huntress for pointing this one out. I had to study it a little bit, with the bigger covers, but it is a connected image. It might just be the four covers that got scanned to CV, but it appears that pieces of the image were lost, from cover to cover - like they were trimmed in production or something. On #2, the Skrull's elbow should flow over to #1, but is missing. Cyclops' elbow is missing from #2 to #3. Kurt's "bamf" effect doesn't color quite right from #2 to #3, and the Skrull's head (bottom) seems like part of it is cut out, from #3 to #4. I wouldn't have caught this without someone pointing it out. Nice catch, DH!
Justice League: A Midsummer's Nightmare #1-3.
Huntress (1994) #1-4.
The top 2 covers seem to match pretty decent, but the bottom 2 are definitely off. See the full image to the right.
The Walking Dead TPB, Vol. #1-12.
This is definitely one of those times you want to be viewing this from my blog page, because I can get six covers per line that way, but the Walking Dead TPB's have a connecting zombie horde image running across the bottom of the covers. The first five or six would have actually benefitted from leaving space between the covers, because edged together, you can tell that part of the image got chopped in making the covers. Volumes 7 through 11 seem to match up pretty well. (I repeated the Volume 6 cover on the second line, so you could see how the image continues, and repeated the Volume 11 cover on line 3 for the same reason. Again, if you're not looking at this on my blog page [link at the top of the page] then this isn't going to look right.)
L.A.W.: Living Assault Weapons #1-6.
Until today (6/6/12) I had never actually seen all 6 of these covers, but I ran across them in a dollar bin, all signed. :) Makes a nice two-tiered image of the Charlton heroes at DC. Incidentally, this was DC's attempt at making the Charlton characters players at DC. Some of them found better success later.
Aquaman #40; Superman: Man of Steel #78; Challengers of the Unknown #15; Teen Titans #19; Superman #134; Supergirl #20; Steel #50; Adventures of Superman #557; Action Comics #744.
The Millennium Giants event. This one goes together pretty well, but there are a few seams that don't quite match up. The color quality from scan to scan isn't consistent either, but you can see the full image, but clicking on the Full Image poster to the right. The image is tied together pretty well by the Giants and Superman Red/Blue.
Speaking of Superman Red & Superman Blue...
Action Comics #742; Superman: Man of Steel #77.
Again, the color is inconsistent due to the scan quality, but it matches up pretty well.
The Mighty Avengers #21-23.
Thanks to X35 for this one. It goes together pretty well too!
American Vampire #13-17 (Ghost War).
This matches beautifully. Thanks to pikahyper for this one, and for the full image shot (and a few to come).
Avenging Spider-Man #6; The Punisher #10; Daredevil #11.
Thanks to pikahyper for pointing this one out, and for the Full Image. Fortunately, he posted the variants in one image on The Omega Effect page, because <sigh> as always, I couldn't get to the variant covers on CV's wiki.
Exiled #1; Journey Into Mystery #637-638; New Mutants #42-43.
Thanks to pikahyper for posting this in the comments, and for the full images, with and without logos.
This is a beautiful image, even if it is a bit chaotic. Check out pika's work on the Exiled page!
Avengers: X-Sanction #1-4.
Venom #13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 13.4.
The Books of Magic #73-75.
This image is sloppy. 73 & 75 can almost make the image without 74 (the middle panel). The coloring is off though, so it's not a good match. This looks like one of those instances when you'd have to overlap the covers to make it work.
Wonder Man #22-25.
I'd really like to see this image put together, without all of the logos obstructing the art. It looks like it went together pretty well though.
Superboy #7; Steel #7.
I really wasn't sure about these two covers. When I used the larger images, they didn't line up that well, and the lines around the edges of each cover make it seem like two different covers. The building under Hardware's foot seems to go over to the Superboy cover, but it doesn't line up well. However the background color is the same, there's the electric arcs flowing from one cover to the other. I decided it is supposed to be one image, but wasn't done well. If they are one image, they're the only two covers from the Worlds Collide arc that made a joint image, which is weird, since they weren't even consecutive chapters.
