Best Marvel Comics Covers for April 2011

My favorite covers for the Marvel Comics solicitations for April 2011. Love those absurd Thor Goes Hollywood variants:


DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER - THE LITTLE SISTERS OF ELURIA #5 (of 5)
Written by ROBIN FURTH and PETER DAVID
Pencils & Cover by LUKE ROSS
Finally! Freedom is in sight! Roland Deschain has made what he believes is his escape from the “healing” pavilion of the Little Sisters! Though he gains ground, the gunslinger learns to his horror that the hideous nuns have no intention of letting such a juicy morsel escape their clutches. And against such bearers of the Dark Bells, even his fabled six shooters are useless. It’s the climax to this compelling story arc you never expected to read!




DEADPOOL MAX #7
Written by Dave Lapham
Pencils & Cover by Kyle Baker
“HONEYMOON IN WAIKIKI”
They say women change after marriage. They say they stop caring about their looks and stop cooking meals and stop cleaning your socks. They say they change their hair color and their name and start lying about their whereabouts and sleeping with rich men and killing them and making deals to sell state secrets with terrorists and stop wearing perfume. They say all that, but Deadpool never thought it would happen to him. He never thought his new life as a non-killing dad would start out so blissfully and end up like this -- with his wife having all the fun and him at home taking care of a screaming baby, wondering when its batteries will run out. Can Deadpool pull his life back together, save his marriage, and stop the spread of the deadly Liquid X? Probably not, but one out of three ain’t bad.




UNCANNY X-FORCE #7
