37 Covers Depicting our Heroes in a Most Monstrous State

Hey, it’s October! Wanna do some Halloween stuff? Let’s do some Halloween stuff.

So two years ago, DC had some fun with its December 2014 issues. Since the books would be out on store shelves in October, DC gave a lot of them monster-themed variant covers, featuring our favorite heroes as zombies, mummies, vampires, you name it:

Before that you had Marvel, which — starting with its 2005 Marvel Zombies mini-series — pumped out a handful of Marvel Zombies specials and mini-species featuring covers that put a zombie twist on classic Marvel covers, like this:

But even before that, you could still find a comic cover or two with a superhero taking on a monstrous form. And it didn’t even have to be Halloween, either — because any time is the right time for a fright time:
