Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/18/2015
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!
Right out from the Dynamic Entertainment camp comes a new series Blood Queen vs. Dracula and while the title sounds enticing Jay Anacleto’s virgin variant cover looks almost like a painting and satisfies my curiosity. I’m astonished by the sheer detail and it must have taken him a while to trace out. Marco Rudy’s Bucky cover was simple, funny, and cool all at the same time. To have our Winter Soldier jester the peace symbol while having both fingers shot off speaks for itself, peace won’t come easy. Elisa Feliz’s also did a wonderful job on what seemingly looks like a painting of one of the main 3 witches from the Charmed show or comic series. I definitely was not into the show or the comic series but this weeks cover deserved a spot on the list.
Next we have Mike Mignola’s new series Frankenstein Underground, a series I personally have been looking forward to. The dude still has it creating a beast of a Frankenstein’s monster for this weeks first issue. Ivan Timewalker from Valiant had its usual multiple cover printing but Brian Level’s variant cover was pretty nifty. Shards of glass displaying reflections, including the eye, nicely done and captures the reader almost immediately as you try to scan for more detail. Lee Garbett’s twisted looking Loki cover was one of the first I snagged this week. Loki’s grotesque display with devouring the poor captured soul kind of hits ya in the gut, creepy yet satisfying. Another new series out this week is by screenwriter Eric Heisserer published by Dark Horse should be an interesting read but loved the color scheme of this cover. Eric did the remake of the Thing and Final Destination 5…can you believe they made 5 of those movies?
Supergirl made the list next and who else could have done such an amazing job on Supergirl’s facial expression and body physique but none of than Emanuela Lupacchino! Finally two Transformer variant covers made the list, first Midtown Comics’s variant cover and then Livio Ramondelli’s variant. Both looked pretty cool and yeah they were Transformer covers so sue me!
Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
