When it comes to the year 2022, comic books were a bit of a wasteland when it came to good stories except in the indie arena. That being said, the cover art was pretty good. It is not just DC and Marvel Comics, several comic book publishers brought in some really cool illustrators for their heroes and villains. For all of you nerds and geeks, you can see some pretty great artwork. Here are My Top 10 Favorite Comic Book Covers Of 2022:
