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 we have another Beauty cover hitting the list and I still find Jeremy Haun’s drawing style both haunting and hypnotic grabbing your attention and reeling you in. You can’t help but stare at it while feeling your skin slightly crawl with an uneasy feeling. Next Jeff Lemire drew a follow up Linewide variant cover from his earlier Linewide variant done for Harbinger (2012) #8. It’s a 1/125 retailer incentive variant that should be hard to come by but if you’re serious about getting one and money is no objects then the after markets are where you should be, try eBay. Now this next hip-hop variant for Carnage #4 really isn’t eye popping, rather it’s just odd. Deadpool poking him with a sword and then Carnage reacting in a childish scream? It definitely was eyecatching in the sense of raising an eyebrow to the sheer stupidity of the cover. Then again there are a lot of degenerate covers depicting Deadpool doing some indecent or insane gesture and to think, I’m a fan of the guy. Colder Toss The Bones unfortunately concludes this week with issue #5 and Juan Ferreyra again does a phenomenal job on translating the rather unique story telling style. I love Juan Ferreyra’s work and I hope to see him in many more upcoming comics in the near future.
This week we also see the new release of a new 4-part miniseries from Valiant Entertainment pleasantly called Faith. Faith was one of the founding members of team Renegade in Harbinger (2012) battling against the likes of Toyo Harada, head honcho of the Harbinger Foundation, Bloodshot, and others. First cover up for Faith was done by another impressive artist Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic. She is another favorite of mine whose work is simply breathtaking. The next Faith cover is a new approach to variant covers from Valiant mimicking a CGC 9.8 with some rather funny dialog coming from Faith. It looks like there will be a similar variant cover for each series line currently in release so check them out!
Monstress #3 by Sana Takeda had a tapestry of intrigate artwork providing a backdrop to cute realistic looking 2-tailed kitty and a fantasy style Fox-girl beautifully drawn to proportion. Mack Chater drew a realistic chin on that beautiful woman decked out in hardware. Cary Nord does a phenomenal job on the new Suicide Squad Most Wanted Deadshot Katana #1 variant cover. Again, I love that watercolor-esque style that’s applied to the color scheme of his drawing. Yes his drawing is amazing but so is that unique color style. Finally we come to a favorite artist of mine, when it comes to the Transformers. Andrew Griffith is an immensely entertaining artist whom submerges himself into the characters he draws and he’s able to do this consistently without fail. Review some of his work and he’s spot on seemingly never having a bad day when it comes to the characters he draws. It’s refreshing to see his talent outside of the Transformers universe though so thank you IDW Publishing for that!
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!
