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!
There is just something about a girl who knows she’s da bomb and that every guy is staring at her, wanting, yearning for just a meet. So flip that idea upside down and apply it to zombies. Now it gets even better because you gotta wonder, are they hungry, or are they HUNGRY…who knows but somethings got their attention! Next we have a pretty cool action sequence cover from Max Fiumara for Abe Sapien. Great detail on both Abe and the bearish monster. I found Joyce Chin’s Alice Cooper vsx Chaos cover to be oh so darn clean that every layer felt like it received the same amount of love and devotion. A fabulous job on each of the character’s facial expressions and yes, even the clown laying on top of the sign had his moment. Now I know that our next cover is one of those Marvel Hip-Hop covers but what got my attention was how Jim Cheung drew the wide angle view starting with Spider-man’s, well knee area I suppose and then pushed out the curvature that would have been if taken by a camera. If you look closely I think you’ll agree with me that he created a spot on interpretation of of that wide angle lens, so kudos to Jim. With our next cover all I can say is I’m just a sucker for Tweety and Darwyn Cooke draws a mean Catwoman; love the 1930’s movie actress pose.
Now Imperium by Juan Jose Ryp may not be the best cover but the sheer detail of the big guy won me over. I do feel like the characters look a bit too 2-dimensional but what an awesome effort on each of the characters. Now I loved this next cover before I realizing who the artist was because it both looked good but also felt so familiar to me. Come to find out that it was drawn by Tula Lotay and what a fantastic cover for Slash & Burn published by Vertigo. She drew a favorite short series called the Supreme Blue Rose along with others. Here is a link to a Search Results on Midtown Comics. Normally I try and keep the covers I choose clean of nudity but this next cover I felt really deserved to be in this weeks top 10. I love how Kurt Tiede brought the young beauty to life on Spring #2. Very tasteful with the slight nudity but definitely kept within reason. Our next artist is none other than Nick Dragotta. Usually you see his works with co-creator Jonathan Hickman over at Image Comics but this week he’s drawn a cover not like others he’s been commissioned to do. This one has a bit more of a human tone to it as he shows us his interpretation of the very young and almost fragile baby Superman. This cover was done well and out of the box from the norm. Finally another simple but effectively drawn portrait style depiction of the head figures of the Ultimates team with a little Hip-Hop style thrown into the mix.
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!
