Best Covers: Marvel solicitations for August 2011

My favorite covers from the Marvel comics solicitations for August 2011:


AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: INFESTED #1
Written by DAN SLOTT
Penciled by BARRY KITSON, LEE GARBETT, EMMA RIOS & GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI
Cover by HUMBERTO RAMOS
One of Spider-Man’s most twisted foes is back, and he’s giving spider-powers to the people of New York! Good people, bad people — suddenly, Manhattan is full of great power! But what about responsibility? The road to Spider-Island starts here! Collecting material from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #659-660 and #662-665.




FEAR ITSELF: DEADPOOL #3 (of 3)
Written by CHRISTOPHER HASTINGS
Penciled by BONG DAZO
Cover by RYAN STEGMAN
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN
Memo to Deadpool: next time you gussy up a loser villain so you can beat him easily and scam people out of their hard earned money, make sure you don’t accidentally actually make him more powerful than you. Of course, that assumes you’ll be willing to show your face after getting beaten by the now-unstoppable-but-still-incredibly-lame Walrus. Deadpool puts the hammer down and drives home the most irreverent tie-in of the year!




JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #626
Written by KIERON GILLEN
Penciled by DOUG BRAITHWAITE
Cover by STEPHANIE HANS
FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN
Loki has assembled his team for his secret mission in the shadow of FEAR ITSELF. Now, he just needs his equipment. Is there anyone Loki won't won't turn to get the power he needs? SPOILERS: No, probably not. The question has to be whether the young boy has the guile to survive turning to them, and whether the promises he makes to secure the chance of a tomorrow will only ensure that the tomorrow will see Asgard as black as a cinder.
