Adios!

Well, my friends, that's it.  Ending on a Steve Rude cover of Fantastic Four 4 seems like a good way to go out.  Thanks again for all of your support.  For all of the new people who have stumbled across this blog since it's been active, there are over 1,000 covers here for you to explore.  It might be best to check out the tags to your right and click on artists or title or year.  There is a ton of good stuff to be found here.  For those that have expressed interest in the book I'm working on, I've posted a small preview at my personal blog here and will continue to post updates as I get closer to releasing it.

R.I.P. Covered

Hi everybody.  I've decided that after posting over 1000 covers on Covered it is time to put it to rest.  There are a few reasons for this.  One is that submissions are down quite a bit since the blog's heyday when I could get 10 -15 a week.  The other is that although Covered didn't take a ton of time to set up, it was time that I could be using to do my own comics.  Since I'm trying to get a graphic novel finished while working a day job, it's very valuable time to for me.

There were times that I would be sent multiple covers from one artist and I would schedule these to post months in advance.  Since I still have some of these to post, I've decided to have Covered go out with a bang.  For the next week or so, I'm going to post two covers a day until I run out.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the artists who sent covers to this blog.  1,000 covers is a lot and there are a lot of great artists who have been featured here.  Running this, I've had the pleasure to discover strong new talents as well as getting to work with some of my heroes.  It's been a wonderful experience.  I'd also like to thank those who would visit and leave the occasional comment.  Sadly, nobody got paid doing this, it was a labor of love for all involved.  Feedback was all that the artists were going to receive for hours of work.  The blog will stay up, so if you see something you love, leave a comment and let them know.
