    This is a real tough one, but I had to go with Cadillacs and Dinosaurs. It has a cool car, dinosaurs, guns and a hot girl. Hellboy is cool, but the cover doesn’t really tell me anything about what I’m going to find.

    While I like me some Mark Shultz, this isn’t his best cover, while the Hellboy is Mignola at the top of his game.

    Both covers have solid composition, but the Hellboy cover goes just that little bit further to give a nice contrast of blacks with a sharp pop of color that does the better job of grabbing my eye when I see it sitting on a wall full of hundreds of comics.

    (Now, if you were to give us Mark Shultz in the form of a Rocketeer cover like Pacific Presents #2 or Rocketeer Adventure Magazine #1, then I’d have a harder time.)

      I’m an idiot. Rocketeer is Dave Stevens. But still, there are many better Mark Shultz covers in the actual comic series Xenozoic Tales from Kitchen Sink and the color reprints from Epic under the Cadillacs and Dinosaurs title than this video game cover.

    Hellboy is probably the stronger cover in terms of design but Cadillacs wins my vote for sheer energy and imagination

    Much as I immensely enjoy Xenozoic Tales/C&D, the Hellboy cover is simple yet elegant. Sometimes less is more.
