  • When I first saw that Alex Ross was doing the Timeless covers and that there were 32 of them I thought, no way I'm getting all of them but I'll pick up a few that I like if I see them on the shelf. That was over a month ago. I went into my LCS last night for the 1st time in a while and was perusing the shelves and he had a bunch of them kicking around and I still resisted. Then I saw the Thor one, Dr. Strange and the Thing and thought man, these are beautiful. Ok, I'll ONLY get these. Then I see he has the rest of the Fantastic Four. Well, I can't have the Thing and not the other 3 right? Oh wow, that Nightcrawler is gorgeous. Fast forward, I'm home, logging in 14 Timeless covers into my collection. d'oh!

    Now I want them all lol.

    My questions are how many of you out there are picking these up? Which ones are your favorites and who do you think was slighted by not getting a cover?

    For me definitely Punisher and Luke Cage, Ant-Man and the Wasp even.

  • I've only got 2, Silver Surfer and Medusa as they were in a series I collect.
    I think these Timeless covers are just taken from here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM66kzN4qNM&feature=emb_logo
    So I they may do one for each character on the mural?

  • I think I ended up with quite a few of them. When preordering they cost the same as the regular books, and I liked several of them, so while I can't recall exactly what I did, I bet I ended up getting most if not all of them instead of the regular covers. I'm a big fan of old school scarlet witch covers, so i think that was the one that pushed me to buy them. The medusa is nice too.

    Yes, they are taking from his mural at Marvel HQ or wherever it is. I thought they said there were 32 covers but there are 35 heroes on the mural. Punisher, Hawkeye and Vision being the 3 that I haven't seen on a comic book cover yet, maybe they are releasing them at a later time.

  • I've picked up a few. I really like the Jean Grey Hellions one.

  • I actually did the same thing, and ended up buying almost all of them. Still missing a couple (Wolverine, Angel, Spidey, Ghost Rider and Daredevil are the last ones for me). It was a good way to get me looking at some series I haven't tried.

  • I don't think anyone should be surprised at how gorgeous these "Timeless" covers are. I took a peek at them all on Alex Ross' homepage.

    I e-mailed a message to Mr. Ross at how sore I was at him for not including Moon Knight. He sent me back a message apologizing profusely for his omission. Well, in my imagination he did at least!!
