Cover Talk: January Week 3, 4, and 5

We’re back with another set of covers as we work to decide the Top 25 Covers of 2019! We’ve got some catching up to do with January covers, so get your voting fingers ready! Before getting to the polls though, here are the top covers you picked from January 9, 2019!


The best cover of January 9, 2019 is: Batman #62 by Mitch Gerads with 28% of the vote!


The best variant cover of January 9, 2019 is: Young Justice #1 by Jorge Jimenez with 18% of the vote.


Also advancing is Harley Quinn #57 by Julian Totino Tedesco with 13% of the vote.

Below you’ll find the covers for January weeks three, four, and five, followed by the variant covers for each week. Check them out. Study them. Try your best not to let your opinion of the story affect your thoughts on the cover, then vote for your favorite. If you’re like me, and can’t decide on just one, then you can select multiple covers if you would like. The top cover for each poll will advance on to its respective Quarterly Cover Poll. Any cover within 5% of the winning cover will also advance to the Quarterly Cover Poll. Remember, the key is to determine the Top 25 Covers of 2019 by the end of the year! If you think a cover is worthy, then vote for it! Happy voting!
