Comic book cover cliches…”Oh, for crying out loud!”

Comic book cover cliches have been around for as long as…well comics. Sifting through a long-box or browsing the shelf at your local comic book store you may have noticed something. And that something is a cover with an overused, repeated, iconic scene. There is one such cliche that I cannot believe artists still use to this day.

Below is a little gallery of just some of those cliche covers. The only sad thing about these covers is their lack of originality. It’s no wonder they’re crying!

I can proudly say that I avoided using such gimmicks for all five covers of The Deciders mini-series.
