2021 continued this tumultuous era for comic books. The larger companies are starting weird trends of changing their legacy characters to placate social media weirdos and that has caused issues in the industry. Fortunately, during this time, we still got some awesome comic art. It was hard to narrow it down because, even if the story was bad, there was some good cover art out there.
From sci-fi epics to the streets of Gotham City, from the big publishers to indie creators and beyond, no stone was left unturned. In no particular order, here are My Top 10 Best Comic Book Covers Of 2021:
