Great Covers – SUPERMAN #149

It’s tough to make a pink background work on a super hero comic book cover, let alone a yellow and green logo, and yet this Curt Swan SUPERMAN cover does just that.  Part of it is simply that the concept is so strong–this is the first time we’ve ever really seen Superman dead on a comic. Additionally, Luthor’s taunt of “Cry your hearts out, folks!” is appropriately childish and petty. Superman being the only element on the piece in bold primary colors draws the eye right to his lifeless prone body.
