Robert Goodin, artist and comic book enthusiast, hosts Covered, a blog for artists to submit their “re-interpretations” of classic comic book covers. Some very closely resemble the originals (one of which dates back to 1919!), while others are more liberal in their re-creations. If you look closely, you can see some artists even rewrote the characters’ original dialogue, which may not be in English. Here are 10 of our favorite reimagined covers.
