I applaud what DC is doing with their covers this month: character shots and large logos against a white background. DC tends to be more inventive than Marvel when it comes to themed covers: first those “portrait” covers (10 or so years ago), then the ones that incorporated the title into the cover design, now these. Comic books are relatively expensive these days, but back in the day when they were 60 cents apiece, I would’ve bought every one. I wonder if there are any young fanboys today doing so just because of the covers?
X-Men Legacy and New Mutants are doing a minor crossover right now, a 6-part story that alternates between the two titles.
