Cover Characteristic #5: Flags

Hey everyone! This is a meme that was created by the folks over at Sugar and Snark called "Cover Characteristic" and here are the rules for this meme:

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit). You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

This week's theme is: FLAGS!

1.  The Death of Superman:  This is my pick of the week since not only has this image become iconic in the comic book world, but it's so beautifully drawn and haunting that I had to rate this number one for the week!

2. Capture the Flag by Kate Messner: This cover was really creative as it showed the flag as a maze and I thought that it was pretty unique and creative!

3. The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss:  Such a simplistic yet inspiring cover that really conveyed the anti-war message in this book!

4. Superman: I know I cheated a little bit with this one, but this is another Superman cover that I really enjoyed and really defined Superman's character!

5. Sheila Rae the Brave by Kevin Henkes: Such a cute cover with a little mouse waving a flag proclaiming her bravery!

Next Week's Theme:

Smiley Face


  1. Capture the Flag was a popular one this week! I've never seen or heard of it before, though. I think using the flag as a maze is very creative.

    1. I've haven't heard of this book either, but it does look interesting!

  2. Capture the Flag is my favorite, and it does seem to be popular this week! It's a good cover though. Have a great week. :)

  3. My husband is going to love the Superman one! Capture the flag's title is so enticing. Hope you have a great week and here is my CC:

    1. I really love Superman myself and Capture the Flag's cover is so creative!
