Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/11/2015
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!
This weeks lot of regular and variant covers and while Dynamic Entertainment has been releasing amazing covers week by week, this week
Yes another Jae Lee cover and I believe is well deserved. I’ve had no problem sharing my fascination with his work and yes I admit that I may have difficulty treating his work impartially. However, not all his covers make my list but when they do they do for good reason. This weeks Action Comics cover made the list with detail. I just love the way he is able to make Superman look so badass. Mark Brooks’ Ant Man cover also caught my with sheer detail. Also, a part of me has pondered when we would actually see the tiny superhero in a situation of life or death from being devoured. The graphic nature of his dire situation on the cover stirred unsettling feelings of the potential to be ingested by some being. Definitely an awesome cover by Mr. Brooks!
Yes, again we find ourselves in the confines of Chaos and with each week brings amazingly well drawn, well colored works of virgin variant art! This week Nei Ruffino’s rendition was drawn and colored nicely and pleasing for my eyes. Chip Zdarsky made the list with his 3D layered approach of King Flash Gordon #2 variant. Ninjak’s new series by Valiant Entertainment was released this week with Lewis LaRosa’s drawn cover blasting out of the gates. Ninjak is a very diverse and complicated character, like so many in the Valiant universe, and I have high hopes for this series. Just please Valiant, bring back my Archer & Armstrong…please?!? Matt Brooks’ Red Sonja #14 cover had good use of color and technique.
Skottie Young has a cover for Sinergy and yes it isn’t a Marvel Baby cover. Well drawn as always in Skottie Young fashion allowing us to revisit why we all love his work excluding the babies! He’s the type of artist that can take an idea and turn it inside out providing that take on something not easily seen or imagined. He literally can make anything extraordinary out of the boring or obtuse.; a true out-of-the-box thinker. Liked the cover for the new series Southern Cross, keeps the mystery at hand. I’m curious if anyone else has pick up this book and if so, is it worth the read? Todd McFarlane is back with a vengeance drawing a variant cover for Spawn Resurrection and yes making Spawn look more intimidating than ever. Finally Sara Pichelli drew a beautiful rendition of Spider-Gwen for this weeks retailer incentive variant.
Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
