Wizard of Oz propaganda image (and more)

Lots and lots of great covers in Marvel Comics solicitations for January 2010. Here are my favorites:

The Marvelous Land of Oz #3 cover by Skottie Young: War comes to Oz as the sassy General Jinjur and her army of amazonian milkmaids storm the city gates. And what do the ladies want? Gems, Fudge, and Sandwiches with the crusts cut off! Well, that and the head of King Scarecrow. Join the best-selling team of Eric Shanower and Skottie Young as the revolution heats up!

X-Babies #4 cover by Young

Punishermax #3 cover by Dave Johnson

Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth #7 cover by Arthur Suydam: Special double-sized issue with art by ROB LIEFELD, KYLE BAKER, DAS PASTORAS and regular series artist BONG DAZO. What do you do with a homesick zombie head? Take it back to the zombie universe, of course! Hopping through an interdimensional portal in the Florida swamp with Headpool tucked under his arm, Deadpool soon finds himself bouncing through a series of outlandish alternate realities, each more warped than the last. Wade Wilson, say hello to Major Deadpool, the Deadpool Kid and – va-va-voom – Lady Deadpool.

Punisher #13 cover by Mike McKone: Trapped in the dank tunnels under New York, surrounded by a savage team of Japanese monster hunters, filthy in the blood of his friends, Frank Castle turns, lifts a giant rifle and smiles. They aren’t prepared for this, you aren’t prepared for this, an entire issue loaded full, completely dedicated to bleeding, sweet, revenge-splattered murder in traditional hardcore Punisher style. Frank’s been through hell -- time to give a little back.

Daredevil #504 cover by Esad Ribic.
