Here are the “rules“.
If you’d like to see the full Marvel May Cover Solicits head on over to CBR.
Also, I’m actively taking suggestions in the comments for how to modify these “Drunk Solicits” going forward. Marvel has just upped their game so much that I feel the need to modify. I’ve thought about doing fewer and doing them individually…or doing them on tumblr…a few things. Lemme know if you’ve got a brilliant suggestion.
And congratulations to you, Marvel…you have officially ruined my fun! But as we all know I’d rather have smart, beautiful, non-offensive covers than a few cheap jokes once a month, so seriously…CONGRATULATIONS. You are making me proud, kid.
AGE OF ULTRON 7. You guys know I hate these no background backgrounds. Blarg. The illustration work is nice though. And I appreciate whats her names costume…actually…who the fuck is that…kinda looks like Janet…but not in any costume I’ve ever seen before…who knows? Sound off in the comments!
AGE OF ULTRON 8. This is a very clever perspective/reversal. I dig it. I’m not sure either of Susan’s arms quite work though…one seems to disappear and the other seems like it’s part “Mr. Fantastic arm.” Wolvie’s claws seem a bit off model too…still, I said I like it, and I do. Huge points for inventiveness.
ALL-NEW X-MEN 11. Hmm. The floating heads aren’t so bad when in a circle. They bother me much less. That said, I gotta admit, I am not down with Emma’s new costume. The problem is, that the Quitely costume from New X-Men was so much more innovative with its “X OF FLESH” so while I have no objection to Emma sporting skin, this seems much less creative, although it’s a fun/weird change to see her in black. I’m also kind of lukewarm on Illyana’s costume. I like the hotpants and thigh high boots (except they’re the same as Emma’s which doesn’t seem like something Emma would stand for) and the boob window and bare midriff both together seem weirdly excessive. Wow. I had a surprising amount to say about this cover. Also, it’s very pretty. Gorgeous illustration work, and the color contrasts and positive/negative space is pretty damn cool.
