And the award for the best cover of the week goes to… Superman #40. This really is a master class in cover art, drawn by two of comics’ most legendary artists, Klaus Janson and one time Marvel mainstay John Romita Jr. To be honest it was a difficult choice between this amazing cover and its variant below, but both are deserving of this week’s spotlight.
