Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 10/29/2014
Here are my choices for top comic book covers. As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!
Hello everyone, Halloween week was a bit of a let down in covers. Had a hard time finding some that really stood out from the rest. I suppose everyone was trying to release some type of Halloween related cover, good or bad, and that might have been the main culprit. As with most weeks when a baby cover from Skottie Young shows up it seems to always make my list, dang it…well like the original Deadpool cover with the picture of a screw + U, you get the idea right? Well with that we have Deathlok in similar fashion with a picture of death + lock. Eh, okay so it’s been used but still neat right? Fine, moving on…Wayward was an awesomely detailed cover possibly sprouting from the Mind the Gap #3 Skottie Young variant production?
Greg Tocchini has consistently amazed me with both his artwork and sheer imagination. Every time Low is released i expect the world and man he delivers. I also found the trio Carrie Strachan, Joe Prado, and Ivan Reis cover for Sensational Comics Featuring Wonder Woman to be just that, sensational. Just take a moment and stare at the cover. Take in the immense amount of detail and the brightness of the light around Wonder Woman. Bunker was different and found the imagery to strike feelings of lonesomeness and imprisonment in ones mind. What we see looking outward isn’t the same as one might see looking inward.
Archer & Armstrong is by far one of my most favorite series. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, one of the best comedic series out there. Sadly the run is ending at issue #25. I know they’ll bring it back someday but I am sad that it’s going. Never the less we need to move on and War Stories Wraparound cover with WWII planes fighting each other…ah, that will cease up the depression of Archer & Armstrong leaving. I thought Guardians of the Galaxy’s retailer incentive Stomp Out Bullying was really well done. The cover does a wonderful job at showing a gentler side of Gamora standing next to a troubled little girl. Click here for more info on Marvel’s Stomp Out Bulling event.
Finally another round of Transformers covers made the list. Brendan Cahill did a fantastic job with Ultra Magnus. Enjoyed the blurb of sub-section 11 (3) of the Autobot Code. Although not as good as the variant covers Ken Christiansen produced from last weeks release his new cover still looks stunning and providing childhood memories the means to resurface. he has a blog that displays his various artwork pieces that you should also check out by clicking here: The Art of Ken Christiansen.
