I was thinking along those same lines last night and was going to post this one today.  You beat me to it.

I have to wonder what the hell she has in that suitcase that makes it so heavy that she struggles to lift it with two hands.

I'm blanking on the title and issue number, but @Ricksneatstuff can help me out if anyone can -- Rick, I'm thinking of the Matt Baker cover with the woman and the sailor talking by a chain link fence and they put a text box across her tail lights. doh!

This one always bothered me that the box is obviously covering up a pair of cool severed heads hanging on the wall that would have made this PCH book even creepier!

Issue 51 of Planet Comics has an awesome cover with a leggy brunette and her companion being attacked by green slimy aliens. Not from the factory, but a horrible aftermarket hack job making the girl look like she is tatted up with "1947" & "No 5" all over.

I always thought the girl depicted on the cover of Planet Comics #51 looks a lot like Katy Perry, or at least how she looked a few years back before she went to the shorter hair style.

Not really a good cover in any way.  More like a sketch for a concept that should have been reworked.  But it always infuriated me as a child because the Hulk does not even appear in one panel of this comic.

Very few people care about Charltons and many of their covers were certainly very lack luster but throwing that huge "win 8000 prizes" blurb doesn't help at all

And then there's this

Seriously Charlton? Really?
