20 spectacular Spectre covers

Apart from having a particularly gruesome origin story, larger-than-life powers, a sadistic sense of poetic justice, and at least a couple of awesome comic runs on his portfolio, a key aspect that stands out about the Spectre is his visually striking design. The stylish green cloak and the ghostly white skin on his semi-naked body, coupled with the Spectre’s perpetually grim features and the character’s propensity for surreal horror tales, have lent themselves over the years to some of the most downright creepy covers on the stands.

Here are twenty breathtaking examples (taken from the Grand Comics Database), to haunt your nightmares:
