Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/15/2015
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 was a bleak week for comic book covers for me. I had a difficult time finding 10 covers that stood out amongst the rest of the flock. However after much determination and a banana shake I was able to pick them. First off we have a new series from Dark Horse that mostly caught my eye because of the plot. Archie vs. Predator and really I am serious. Eric Powell’s Predator was seriously badass even if there was a hamburger beneath his privates. I gave Bloodshot Reborn two wins cause I wanted to. Dirty Harry style from Butch Guice and an interesting interpretation from Jeff Lemire artist of Descender, the one optioned by Sony for a movie.
Next a beautifully drawn and colored virgin variant for Capture Creatures #3 by artist Maggie Rudy; it made me feel good. Another hot artist right now is Sean Murphy and his Chrononauts variant homage to none other than the guys in Top Gun is actually quite fitting if you are reading the new series by Mark Millar and Sean Murphy; mimicking the arrogant alpha males of the movie minus the intelligence or is it stupidity, not sure yet. Joe Benitez did an interesting cover for Executive Assistant Iris volume 3 annual but the waste is just so damn small!
Another cute homage cover to the now infamous Days of Future Past titled Nutmeg of all things, nice. Damien Worm is a very intriguing artist, like Jae Lee he has interesting lines creating fantastic covers and the October Faction is no exception. I’ve been noticing Sara Richard over the past few weeks now with her ingeniously done My Little Pony covers and it’s good to see her branch out finally to other stories; love the artwork! Finally Mike Norton did a…well an interesting cover to say the least. If you have been following the series then well yeah creepy.
Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
