There are lots of pins that incorporate comic book style art into the playfield, translite and cabinet... Tales from the Crypt, Judge Dredd and such.

But what is your pick for the pin with the best comic book style art? My selection would go to Blackout... I think it encapsulates the Wally Wood EC Comics style art from the 1950s. A thing of beauty.

Where's the poll?

Gordon Morrison's illustrations were straight outta 1960's and 70's comics. Strange World is a rare classic that comes to mind.

I’m surprised no one has mentioned Dr. Dude!

X-men by a mile. It was drawn by Marvel by one of the most famous X-men artists. That playfield and cabinet are works of art.

XMEN .. nothing else comes close

Let's be clear--this backglass is a shameless rip-off of Jim Steranko's Nick Fury cover from almost 15 yrs earlier. It's really amazing the artist and Williams got away with. The stakes were a lot smaller then, and comic publishers probably thought it wasn't worth the money to pursue.

This BG by Morison always reminded me of
some superhero contortions and poses previously portrayed in comic books
by Steve Ditko, Gil Kane and Sal Buscema.

Centaur is the closest we will get to a Frank Miller Sin City pin

Batman Forever. Not the backglass necessarily, but definitely the playfield.
