    Dave McKean - everyone else is a distant second. Contemplated just repeating his name 5 times.
    JH Willams III & Mick Gray - Promethea
    Christopher Moeller - Lucifer
    David Mack - c'mon, now.
    Gianluca Pagliarani - assuming he did the painted retro covers of Ignition City

    Dave McKean, for his Sandman work
    Glenn Fabry
    Alex Ross

    and beyond that, there's not a clear fifth.

    David Aja
    Dave Johnson
    Jock
    Jamie McKelvie
    David Mack

    edit: Errr, I don't think any of these need any explanation, except maybe McKelvie. Those Phonogram covers were fantastic. Jock executes a single idea on the cover really, really well. Ditto for Dave Johnson. I mean, 100 Bullets, people. David Mack, obvious reasons. Aja, because, well, I really like his style, his use of blocks (see Immortal Iron Fist #16, Green Arrow #12) within the unifying theme, and he can do a "normal" cover and he can do the variants/wacky ideas really well. Aja's stuff is always striking to me, in short.

    McKean. He's the only artist whose covers make me buy books I would otherwise not be interested in. I actually went and became an artist because of his covers. I had the same response to the question as razrangel, only I can't be arsed thinking of four more.
