Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers. These covers got my attention and whether being good or bad are deserving of your attention as well, so here we go!
So last weeks top 10 went to the wayside as unfortunately I had a sick wife and a work crisis. Nothing like having our main server go down when so many people depend upon it. So those 2 reason alone caused me skip it but this week is different since I had a little more time and just a sick wife. So with that first off we have Aliens vs Zombies and Jason Metcaf did an awesome job on the part of the zombie, or for that, all the parts flying out of the zombies head as the reader stares down the cause for the hole. Next we have Batman Arkham Knight’s cover, pretty grim but eye catching none the less. I love Ryan Lee’s imaginative interpretation of the Harbinger, literally emitting the power of death from his eyes!
Another book this week that I personally have been waiting for is the start of the 3rd ark to the Colder series Colder Toss the Bones with artist Juan Ferreyra. If you still haven’t picked this series up yet you must. The art is pivotal I think, different in so many ways that it stretches the mind as you are sucked up into a mind alternating world that could only be dreamt up artistically by Juan. This is a must series to pick up and don’t forget you also have 2 more story arcs prior to this one, all worth picking up. Next we have an odd cover but still tantalizing to the eyes and imagination and that’s Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree #2 playing off on the 80’s rap infancy along with slapping that bad boy onto a golden age style cover. Very inventive and playful keeping it real and definitely making my list for those reasons.
I realize Jem and the Holograms is ground breaking but Agnes Garbowska drew the cuteness to near perfect satisfaction. JH Williams Sandman Overture also made the list as it has in the past from the detailed abstract view of what could be anything, like a dreamscape to an alien planet, it could be near anything you imagine and that’s why his covers are so interesting to look at. Dustin Nguyen had another cover out this week as he should being an in demand artist and I enjoyed his somewhat faded western style cover. Jay Anacleto’s cover for Swords of Sorrow Red Sonja & Jungle Girl was beyond amazing. The cover was detailed and drawn proportionally from corner to corner that resulted in a clean representation of both leads. Finally we come to our last cover created by the talented Casey Coller for another installment of Transformers. In fact this is the cover I preordered and I’m very much looking forward to receiving it in the mail here soon from Midtown Comics!
So that’s this weeks top 10 most fascinating, eye catching, crazy looking comic book covers that I could find. If you see any rare variants that you plan on searching for then good luck and happy hunting!
