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 to start out this week we have a wraparound variant cover for the new series Avengers Volume 6 by Arther Adams. I like seeing different character variations done by popular artists at a large scale. Next we have Dave Johnson’s twisted looking tribute to the famous artist Grant Wood and his ever-famous American Gothic had class. It really makes you intrigued with the main characters. Tula Lotay’s layered artwork with simplistic coloring made this a fantasic looking cover this week for Codename Baboushka Conclave Of Death #1. As you can see every since he released that special store variant for Midtown Comics, Skottie Young has had pletty of work from Marvel creating has one-of-a-kind “Marvel Baby” covers has they’ve come to be known as. I’m a sucker for them and a really big sucker when Deadpool and Spidey are featured. Those two knuckle heads always seem to do well during team-up or beat each other up one-shots as they wise crack there way through the many difficult situations they inevitably find them selves stuck in.
Salvador’s cover for issue 10 of the Dark Vader series was very clean and beautifully done. Aphra is an amazing character that has added a level of complexity to the Vader series and her looks by conceles her dark inner twisted character much like Vader’s suit. Now, our next cover by Arjuna Hesitates Grant Morrisons 18 Days variant looks more like something from an art history class book that you’d see while taking a course at a university. The pale completion and nose screams Renaissance, don’t you think. The cover alone is a work of art, very impressively detailed. Lara Croft is back with a new series with Dark Horse, yeah Dark Horse and I think Lara Croft is still hanging out over at Image Comics as well if I’m not mistakened. That Lara dating to guys at once, slick indeed so it’ll be intersting to see where this series takes us, gritty yet mistical at the same time or will it have a more dark adult tone to it.
Jae Lee has a way of just grabbing your attention and he succeeded in doing so this week from his rather bizare looking Masks 2 variant cover. I found Ian MacEwan’s Tomorrows #3 cover fasinating in that I too sometimes feel like a block head surfing my ever expanding world from my iPhone with pleasure oozing out of every orifice. Finally we come to the ever famous Menton3 whose dark abstract covers offer the masses a dark entry into a world that can only be of the X-Files. Most times the covers are of objects or landscapes with characters thown in the mix but this week we get to see something a little different, an alien skeleton.
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!
