Genius Covers: Resurrection Man #8

DC Comics has tried twice to get Resurrection Man to be one of their leading series. The first time around was its initial run in 1997-1999 and again when DC rebooted their universe with the New 52. The second time around Resurrection Man only lasted 13 issues and who knows if he'll get a third go around. 

The Resurrection Man is Mitchell Shelley and as his nickname indicates he cannot be killed permanently and each time he is resurrected he obtains a different power related to the way he died. I collected quite a few of the initial run and issue #8 has one of my all-time favorite covers.
