Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers. These covers got my attention and whether being good or not deserve a moment of your viewing time, so here we go!
This week brought rain, literally rain and cold and that usually signals to peeps here in Seattle that winter is fast approaching. So as long as the lights and heat don’t go out I’ll be able to read, not burn my comics for fuel thus providing the continuation of top 10 comics each week. Starting off we have Axcend #2 by Shane Davis and what really caught my eyes first was her mouth and beautiful pearly whites; color choice was fascinating in of itself. Viktor Bogdanovic did a painstakingly detailed cover that I think paid off. Lots of detail yielded more time with my eyes as viewed each date; very well done! Black Science has been around for a while now and I’ve been an avid follower ever since it’s announcement. Writer Rick Remender and artist Matteo Scarlera have constantly delivered a fascinating plot line constructed of science, multiple dimensions, and thick back stabbing and at times complicated story of a group of characters seemingly creating problem after problem from there interdimensional travel device, the pillar. This weeks cover was marvelous to look at. With Deadpool dead, wait, he’s not dead? Any ways, volume 5 starts and this week 2 made the list, one from Katie Cook and the other a Hip-hop themed cover by Kaare Andrews. I love Katie Cook’s take on Deadpool and in fact I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen her take; that’s worth owning.
Next we have Extraordinary X-Men and 2 made this weeks list, one by none other than J. Scott Campbell and the other was another Hip-hop themed cover by Sanford Greene. I really like the 80’s urban feel to the Sanford Greene’s cover and yes, Scott Campbell does wonderful with his stunning version of what, yes another woman, slender and sleek as always. A new series named Niobe She Is Life starts up this week and Hyoung Taek Nam’s variant cover was different and that caught my eye. The facial detail along with the young girls hands are what caught my eye. Very clean, very detailed, proportionally drawn well to the rest of her body, kudos to you Hyoung! Next we have another Damien Worm cover but what’s different about this one is that the cover is of a beautiful woman with that dark monstrous appeal of other covers adapted here. The woman, still very beautiful if only skin deep has amazing eyes. Just look at how he drew her eyes, that’s what made this cover stand out. Finally we have a Alex Milne Transformer cover and his version of a somewhat upset Grimlock. If you have been following the series, then you know why he may be upset.
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!
