I'll start it off

Uncanny x-men #141 Days of Future past.

I think your supposed to rate the covers. I give 7 for Second Coming and 6 for X-Men deadly genesis.

#8 Posted by broo1232 (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

You don't have to but if you want to you can. Wolverine origins 8 and 5 for x-force

I was never a fan of the Astonishing X-Men covers they were pretty bland (Except for the emma covering scott's eyes) they all get a 6 from me.

8 for Days of Future Past, Brilliant cover, true classic

5 for Wolverine, May be a classic, but Wolverine's face always scares me here. The way its drawn and how he's mostly naked makes it look like he has alternate motives.

Avengers Vs. X-Men #1 Cover
Uncanny X-Men #523

AvX had an insane #1 cover, too bad the story is mediocre :\

Second Coming has wayyy too many awesome covers

#12 Posted by broo1232 (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

AVX I'd give a 8 it would be a nine but the facial expressions are nearly all the same. Second coming 9

#13 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1523 posts) - - Show Bio

One of my favorite covers has to be............

Uncanny X-men #183

#14 Posted by broo1232 (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah that is a great cover I'd give it a 9.

#15 Posted by Rickbarry (1761 posts) - - Show Bio

Ultimatum was awful, but this cover was pretty sweet. I like reflections.

#16 Posted by broo1232 (1520 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah that is pretty cool. 8.5

this cover is great!

I think it's kind of funny that with all the cross-overs they had during this period, it would still take them another two or three years to unite these characters into one team; it just seems so obvious in retrospect.

if you replace Dazzler/Longshot/Havok with Jubilee/Gambit/Bishop, it's the 90's X-men.

@RawrImADragon: oh yeah, that cover is bad ass!

#35 Posted by RawrImADragon (206 posts) - - Show Bio

@dangallant984: The cover artist was Stephane Roux. Good stuff.

Thanks!

here's some I like from when I was a kid:

this period was pretty spotty, for covers, and in general, but I liked these issues, and JoMad still interested me as an artist. Then they let him do Age of Apocalypse, and it was all downhill..

Though not a great period overall, I liked most of the issues that focussed on Beast/Iceman/Rogue/Gambit/Storm/Psylocke/Angel/Bishop, which was most of them. This was never the official team, I don't think, but between those characters, it didn't feel like anything was missing. I expect that this may have been the impetus for Storm's X-treme X-men, which seemed to be the characters left over during Morrison's New X-men.

This one isn't even out yet, but it's up there as one of my favorite covers already.

#39 Edited by dangallant984 (1282 posts) - - Show Bio

though in a few cases I may be being swayed by the story inside, I really tried not to just pick my favourite issues; that said, these are probably my favourite covers of the 80's:

I'm a big fan of Arthur Adams and John Byrne:

#45 Posted by dangallant984 (1282 posts) - - Show Bio

@broo1232: haha! I actually love that cover!

@PhoenixoftheTides: oh man, Art Adams was one of my favourites growing up. I liked a lot of the guys who did covers for X-men Classics, and always was wishing one of them would be the regular artist.

Then we got JoMad, and I was ecstatic, for about a year..

Some Astonishing X-Men's covers were very cool(the last one it too lol):

I liked also some Second Coming Covers, even if the story wasn't very cool:

This ones from Legacy are cool, too:

And I loved this one with Illyana:

haha! I was totally going to put this one up, love this cover!

Astonishing did have some cool covers, though. It sort of bugged me how every seventh issue just had a generic team shot to use as the cover of the trade. I would have loved the first chapter of Torn (#13) to have Wolverine fighting all the students on the cover, that could've been cool, and it's a scene we don't actually get in the story.

Maybe I'll make an alternate cover of my own..
