Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers. These covers got my attention and whether being good or not, are deserving of your attention as well.
This week saw an influx of variants by all publishers that I would have loved to placed on the list, alas though there is only room for 10 so here we go! Yasmine Putri’s Amazing Spider-Man variant had a unique pastel shading to it catching my eye. Next who doesn’t like Bizarro and this weeks variant by Kyle Baker just makes the character that much lovable, almost like that big green dumb guy over in the Marvel corner. Fabiano Neves created a beautiful work of art for Blood Queen, love the lines, the color, everything.
Next we have a comic even I have been looking forward too and yes that is the Giant-Size Little Marvel AvX #1 where we get to see a bunch of cute ass X-Men, Avengers, and everyone else get in there and battle it out for whatever reason that may be. I enjoyed Humberto Ramos’s take on the group and I thought out of all the action figure variants that have come and gone, John Tyler Christopher did an awesome job on the Cap and Cyclops. Where can I buy those figures for my son John?
Nailbiter is another creepy and horrific comic at times dealing with psychopaths and serial killers. This weeks cover by Mike Henderson was a step away from the norm and I enjoyed that immensely. Love the Golden Age style cover and how even the white parts even have that dirty rub look that you would find on a cover from this time period. The Sixth Gun: Valley of Death just came across as a no holds bar cover where a badass blood thirsty character is show chomping away blood in all. Uncanny Season 2 #3 had a complex and beautiful collage layout immersing oneself with a limited color scheme that worked well combining the wolf’s head with the layout of the town. The shading and somewhat abstract detail of the town made it all work out, great job Jock! Woods #13 was simple but affective, blood red with a fog back drop creating that eerie feeling, very powerful. Finally Years of Future Past did a wonderful job of displaying all the characters in play for that book.
Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10. If you plan on searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
