Love, love, love the early Mads...
At least Icarus tried!
My Process: Dead Rider Graphic Novel (Dark Horse Comics) plus oil paintings, pencils and other goodies:
My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
Cool stuff. I really like that Superman up in the clouds one and the Batman year 100 cover. I think my favourite covers are from the Shaolin Cowboy (by Geof Darrow). I like that there are alternate covers for every issue. The last two are alternate covers by Moebius and Mike Mignola.
Keep em coming!
My favourites I guess but they are all beautiful:

Technically not a single issue cover, but a trade cover. I have it as a print on my wall. Every-time I look at it I see something new.
It's the cover for the second Runaways Hardback.
I use MSPaint.
Adam Hughes' Catwoman covers are probably some of the best in comics history. You can find them all on his DA account. Here's a little known comic I loved when I was a kid. I drew robots endlessly after this. Too bad the company fell before the story could come to a conclusion. Cover by Neal Adams:
EDIT: Who drew the Hancock cover?

These are at least the favorites that I could find online...
"Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote
Web, FineArt, Sketchbook
Here are a few of my favorites

"Work for your self first. You can paint best the things you like or the things you hate. You cannot paint well when indifferent.
Express a mental opinion about something you are sensitive to in life around you. There is a profound difference between sensitivity and sentimentality."
~ John Sloan Gist of Art
iconic, strong, soooo in your face
FRank Quietly did the hancock cover, but whoever colored should stop with comic covers and get to coloring plumbing instruction manuals . That guy sucks. Anywhoo, I dig frank quietly's covers but just dont like the how obsessed/in love with his own rendering he is when he does interiors. I think at times he tries to pull a geoff darrow style, but he cant balance his shit much there. But yeah , he is talented and skilled no doubt.
Well, here's a couple more Frazettas from the Verotik run, "Death Dealer #1" and "Jaguar God." Image has also recently been doing a series based on some of his other paintings. Of course, if we want to expand this a bit, take your pick any of those early Warren magazines (Eerie, Creepy, or Vampirella.)
Sticking to comic covers, these two are my top 3 favourites
Frank Frazetta (as is everyone didn't already know)
This fantastic cover my Liam Sharp and Glen Fabry
And the first issue cover of TMNT

I like how the chest tilts towards you... independent of ...well everything else.
I think that picture just diminished my quality of life just a little more, thanks a lot.
