Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/29/2015
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!
So all hell has broken loose this week with the release of the final book for Batman’s End Game story line in issue #40 where apparently either or both Batman and Joker will die. This has led to a run on the book and finding either the regular or variant cover will be difficult. Yes difficult, unless you are willing to pay higher cost in the secondary market. Now if you want the retailer incentive cover by Andy Kubert that is both awesome and twisted, well then good luck.
Next cover was Joe Eisma’s Morning Glories cover. I like it because of the realism of the sunset. If you stare at it long enough you can see the sky almost become a little wavy like a real sunset. Next, I really like the color scheme of this weeks Multiversity by Francis Manapul. A wonderful collage of vibrant colors and characters pleasing to the eye. I’ve personally stayed away from the recent events of DC but it doesn’t mean the art can’t be fantastic. This weeks Spread, which is always a twisted display of freakishness has also decided to jump on the action figure variant bandwagon; definitely an oddball villain. Superman was chosen simply because of the way the characters were drawn and the viewing angle. If you look closely at Superman on the cover it seems like the right portion of this body is just plain out of whack. A very large bulge on the bottom right of his torso. The followup issue to the wildly popular and sold out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44 and the possible death of Donatello story comes the retailer incentive #45 that shows what looks to be a robotic Donatello and drawn to perfection.
Jonathan Lau’s Twilight Zone cover had a unique transition of light and dark. I’m thinking the colorist has more work cut to do on this cover than Lau but still teamwork does pay off. War Stories was just plain funny, take a look at the caption in combination with the art and I’m sure you’ll agree. Finally we have a happy-go-lucky cover with this weeks Wayward. Just drawn well, a happy feeling type of cover.
Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
