In the second article of this series, four different team members each share their favorite covers and why they're so important.
Wonderworld Comics #7
I'm a huge fan of legendary artist Lou Fine, and this is my favorite example of his genius draftsmanship and layout — Wonderworld Comics #7. His covers and interiors were so dynamic and beautifully illustrated, it's no wonder that he served as inspiration to legends to come, such as Jim Steranko and Jack Kirby.
Shawn Caffrey, Finalizer, Copper and Modern Age Specialist
Though at first glance it may seem like a cover with not a lot to it, Superman #32 is definitely one of my favorite Golden Age covers. Struck by several bolts of lightning, Superman feels barely anything; in fact, it only tickles him, proving without a single doubt — and with just simple imagery — that he truly is a man of steel.

Jumbo Comics #12
The Will Eisner–drawn cover to Jumbo Comics #12 from February 1940 is one of my all-time favorites. The artist's talent for illustrating from an angled perspective, coupled with his attention for detail, makes this scene a real beauty. Action and adventure oozes from every square inch of this colorful, swashbuckling masterpiece.

Amazing Adventures #29
The cover perfectly reflects the character's motivation. No pretense — just put down those who oppress humanity, regardless of the cost to self.
