More often than not, a good comic book cover can leave a lasting impact, providing a look into the fantastical world of the series in an eye-catching way. While trends on comic book covers have definitely evolved over the decades, their emotional resonance often remains the same -- something that was recently spotlighted in a viral Twitter prompt.
