I was perusing a good blog on really bad comic book covers (Comic Coverage), and found myself laughing out loud. There is a laundry list of web sites featuring bad album covers, but bad comic book covers are a relatively uncharted territory.
The Rifleman cover is bad for obvious reasons, but for my money, the worst cover of all time has to be the Superboy issue where he is literally being laid over his father's knee and spanked! They might as well have put out a special bed wetting issue. How humiliating.
And, as with The Rifleman, sometimes the cover itself may be okay - it is just our modern day jaded and cynical minds that make it bad. Shame on us!
