    Welcome to the new addition of the Comic Books and Graphic Novels section!

    Just a little game to see who can correctly identify the cover image. I'll mostly stick to the main publishers in the US, if I deviate I'll let everyone know. I'll also stick to main covers, but again, I'll let everyone know.

    Also be honest, no using Google Image Search or similar tools to identify the covers for you.

    There can be up to 5 levels to guess per cover:

    • Publisher - Who published the book? Some titles have gone to multiple publishers like Star Wars has (Marvel, Dark Horse then back to Marvel)
    • Series - Don't just say Spider-Man, indicate if it's Amazing, Spectacular, Web of, etc.
    • Character - Predominate Character(s). If multiple versions of the same character are featured, be specific (Earth-616 Spider-Man, Earth-772 Spider-Man, Ben Reilly Spider-Man, Miles Morales Spider-Man)
    • Issue - Issue Number (Volume and Year is optional). For Graphic Novels, instead of an issue number, indicate the title of the book.
    • Homage - If the cover pays respect to someone else's work, indicate the original work.

    Captain Planet.

    How did you distort the image like that? I'd love to play but I have no idea how to do that.

    Superman?
    How specific do we have to be in our answer?
    Just the name of the comic or issue number as well?
    Just name the central character of the comic?

    Is it '90s Superboy?

    I can kind of see the black leather jacket and gloves, besides the typical red & blue super-colors.

    It's Cyborg Superman holding the American Flag from the cover of Superman #79 back during the Reign of the Supermen story line following the Death of Superman. Death/Reign/Return of Superman got me into collecting comics back in the fourth grade!

    If this becomes too hard we can change the game to Name That Character, but I was hoping we'd first try for exact issue number first.

    Yes, you got the other one, original post was updated with the winners.

    You are on the right track with Extremis. Gotta be more specific with Series Title (see post 1).
