Best Cover Poll: Q-1 2016

Best Cover: Q-1 2016

It’s that time of year! Each week you’ve been voting on your favorite cover in our Upcoming Comics post, and now we’re bringing those winners together into one poll to decide which comics will compete in our Best Cover of 2016 at the end of the year. I guess you can essentially look at this as a Semi-Final round, before moving to the finals!

How this works: The top cover of each week for the months of January through March are featured below, as well as the winners from variant cover polls. Along with them, I’ve included some Wild Cards.  The Wild Cards will consist of covers that performed really well in their week’s poll, but just barely missed the top spot. Along with each cover, we’ll recognize the artists of the cover, the week it won its poll (or just barely fell short), and the percent of votes it received in its initial poll. As always, you will be allowed to vote for as many covers as you’d like. The poll will be open for one full week, and then voting will close. We will then announce the top eight covers in our July Solicitations post.

Check out the covers one more time, then get to voting!
