Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 7/13/2016

 

Ah, for me Friday is here and with that a rather busy workweek is coming to a close.  This week we saw an influx of amazing covers from all of the publishers that I found it more difficult to select only 10.  So with that we move right on into our first set of 5 covers where Bloodshot Reborn #15 took 2 of the 10 spots this week.  Darick Robertson drew simply what I refer to as a badass.  I don’t think Bloodshot has ever looked so damn burly!  Next Jeff Lemire’s overall interpretation of the series take on Bloodshot Island, something I’m very excited to finally read about, just has that ominous feeling about it.  Especially now that we know looming near the horizon will be a series of bloodshed filled events as we delve into the Islands history.  Next we have a cover from a TV series long since canceled, Charmed with the cover by Elisa Feliz.  This cover really had a lot of finesse and beauty about it.  Dustin Nguyen makes waves with another amazing cover release for his series Descender.  His use of color with art provides clarity to his artistic style reserving the right in my mind at created whatever comes to mind and with such has opened many doors to other series.  Seeing his variants across the board from a variety of subject matter provides a different perspective to how one sees those characters.  Like with Skottie Young and his baby variants it’s fun to have the opportunity to see things from another viewpoint.  Next the gun, from Ben Willsher, taking the approach with aperture created a focal point centered around the barrel of Dredd’s gun.  The impact is intense and unique causing one to look multiple times and what detail is out of focus in order to gain an overall idea of what’s taking place.

I’m not sure how long Dave Johnson has been drawing but I became of fan from his work on the Valiant Entertainment series Shadowman.  I think my favorite cover from him is Shadowman #3 1:25 retailer incentive variant of Mr. Twist.  What can I say about our next cover from Diego Latorre?  Well his variant for Ninjak #17 was manufactured from nothing less than pure awesomeness!  The complex imaginative though process that had to have been invested into the developement of this cover simply blew my mind.  The sheer detail and the way the swords push out of the head like they were jabbed into solid earth, crazy good.  God I hope to see more art from this amazing artist.  Next is really just a selfish plug for a new Netflix TV series that both my kids, and yes even yours truly, are totally invested in.  I heard they were going to remake the series and I thought, huh, that’ll be interesting.  But the story is great, the graphics off the chart, and the overall feeling is good so far as my family and I finished up with season one of the show.  We are all looking forward to season 2.  The Netflix rating is 5 stars so yes we aren’t the only ones that are watching it!  With that our next cover by Raul Allen for the Wrath of the Eternal Warrior visually grabbed my attention from the use of that hot dark pink on black popping out from the internet pages.  I honestly couldn’t pass it buy without at least clicking on it to see the cover up close on my computer.  Yes, even the line detail bordering the center image must have taken Mr. Allen a while to sketch out.  With the choice of color the final cover really came out on top when compared with the many other variants for this issue.  Finally we have another Menton3 cover and yes his unique style when it comes to his art places him in a category all alone.  What I found about his drawing of Scully was her face.  Her face was clear and clean and with a color scheme almost made her look ghost or godly like.

Well that wraps up another week of eye catching comic book covers.  If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices this week please do and I hope to see you back here next week.

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/20/2016

Last week took the kids on a vacation for Spring break down to good old Legoland.  Yes we did have fun but man that place seems a bit, how do I describe it as, a bit rundown for a theme park.

First off this week we have a rather gritty looking cover by Roberto De La Torre for Bloodshot Reborn #12.  I love the lines as if his face bread to form the shape that is presented to us.  Our next cover was from David Mack and yes he frequents the list often but in this case he definitely deserves it.  From his painted artwork from what seems like simply brush strokes to full on detailing of this woman’s face and body, David Mack is more than just talented, he’s on a whole different plane of existence.  Another artist that seems to hop on board this list with his alternative style is Jeff Lemire and he made the list with his variant cover for the debut issue of Dept H and what do you know, Matt Kindt is writing, funny.  Trevor Hairsine created a beautiful incentive cover for Divinity II’s debut issue.  Love the two-toned layover of each image, dark yet it really has a profound impact on you visually.  You get that god like feeling as he melds with the stars and nebula looking object.  Ho damn we got ourselves and Art Appreciation image from Wouter Tulp of Donal Duck.  Hot diggity damn he did a fine job actually on the pattern surrounding Donald and his carpet like beard, I do enjoy this rather subtle blue period looking image of Donald.

Our next half of the list starts with a cover from what seems to be a trend with writer and now more frequent cover artist Jonathan Hickman.  If you don’t like his writing then at least give his art a go.  He already did a fantastic Optimus  Prime a month ago for Transformers: Robots in Disguise #50.  Oh damn, I forgot they hacked off the RID part….sorry, just Transformers.  Not to be mistaken for the cute cartoon series adaption my 3 year old son is into Transformers Robots in Disguise Animated.  Christ I got off topic here, so anyways, East of West is finally back on track after it’s creative team took a break.  So Hickman is writing this fabulous Image Comics series but he also decided to do a cover and I’m kicking myself now as I ramble along that I didn’t preorder this one.  The eyes man, the eyes have me and that hint of purple, damn, done so well.  Next Yasmine Putri did a fun action incentive cover for Karnak #3.   Drawn well and done in a way that definitely stands out from the crowd this week.  Ed Benes created  a simple yet well drawn group shot of the Teen Titans group.  Another fascinating artist that I follow is Matteo Scalera, he creates very detailed work yet can pull himself outside a potentially narrow minded set of blinders and create abstract yet realistic looking characters that can just dazzle the eyes and really help bring forth an artists script.  I love all his work, especially his work with Black Science!  Finally we have another funny yet well drawn Transformers cover for IDW Publishing’s Art Appreciation event.  I love the now dead and currently haunting Starscream…Bumblebee with the cane looking over a mock-up or potentially deactivated Sky-Byte in a possible museum setting, I got this cover, awesome job Casey Coller!

Well that wraps up another week of eye catching comic book covers.  If you feel the need to share your thoughts concerning my choices this week please do and I hope to see you back here next week.

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 1/27/2016

 

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!

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 11/18/2015

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!

If you haven’t noticed it seems like Batman is everywhere in comics these days and maybe, just maybe it’s due with the soon to be released blockbuster movie of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.  This week we have a crazy looking cover by Alisson Borges representing none other than Harley Quinn looking oh so amazing.  Next a rather comical looking virgin variant by Felipe Smith for Big Trouble in Little China grabbing several scenes from the original movie that are near and dear to my heart!  Now there are times when a cover is created by an artist and you wonder oh my god how is this artist doesn’t have their own cereal?!?! Well Glenn Fabry is a well known artist and I can see why but boy does he need to be place on a pedestal with this cover for Bloodshot Rebory #8.  Every detail is simply amazing and I know the colorist had a lot to do with the final outcome being so demonic in nature.  Whether it be Glenn or the books colorist David Baron, those red eyes go deep into ones soul.  Our next cover I thought a bit of imagination to it with our mechanical stork delivering what appears to be a freaked out baby so great job Leila del Duca.

Another fascinating cover to look at was this weeks Hacktivist by Marcus To.  Sara Richard is a somewhat talented abstract at times artist and her ability to create a story with brilliantly intertwined imagery creating a final collage so worthy of recognition.  Now it’s surprising that a series like Rat Queens is still so popular as it didn’t appeal to me but hey I enjoy the writer but doesn’t mean I enjoy all their works.  Now the Vader series has been kicking some major tail as of late and this past week is the start of the Vader Down storyline.  Joelle Jones did a fantastic job portraying each of the characters on the incentive cover.  But what caught my eye was the detail in the background.  That was the deserving fireworks that really made this cover pop!  Tokyo Ghost #3 again you say?  That’s like the third cover that has made the list and oh by the way, that means every release has made the list, wtf?  Yes I know and while I may be biased towards Sean Murphy & Matt Hollingsworth’s artwork, compared to what it’s continually up against each release week quite frankly it deserves to be recognized.   Finally, I found Tomboy #1 by Mia Goodwin utterly phenomenal.  I love her big blue eyes and her sleek 50’s style face; very beautiful.

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!

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 10/7/2015

 

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!

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 9/16/2015

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!

First off we have a creepy looking zombified cover from 68 Last Rites by artist Jay Fotos.  Not to read too much into this but it does look quite a bit like a photo, Mr. Fotos!  Next we have an amazing artist, Ben Templesmith who’s quickly become an all-time favorite of mine.  He was the artist on a past series Ten Grand published by Image or better yet imprint Joe’s Comics.  If you haven’t had a chance to read the 15 comic series Ten Grand I advise you to check it out.  I’m pretty confident you won’t be disappointed.  Another cover  that intrigued me was Bloodshot reborn by Garry Brown.  I found it rather amusing since it’s a play off of the famous Arnold Swartzenager film, Terminator 2: Judgement Day.  Oh man, next give it up for the man who’s both an amazing artist and talented writer, Mike Mignola.  Can you hear the crowd cheering?  This week he graced us with his presence by creating the variant cover for B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth #135.  I met him at last years ECCC and got a ton of stuff signed by him, really nice guy.

Now this week I did pick an odd ball comic that I probably wouldn’t have noticed but since Nei Ruffino was the artist I had to take a look.  His Critter #1 variant was super clean, like all his covers, and stood out even though it’s a dark colored cover.  Another cleanly done cover was by Mike Deodato Jr. for Guardians Of Knowhere #4.  If you stare at it long enough you’ll notice that every line seems to be perfectly drawn.  If he did this entire cover freehand then it’s by far one of the best covers I’ve seen and should take the top spot this week.  Another fascinating cover was done by Dustin Weaver for Infinity Gauntlet Vol 2 #4.  I say fascinating because there is so much going on that even the colorist must have had a tough time weeding out every aspect of depth being played out.  Everything looks proportional spot on making it another tough cover to beat.

Next we have a special treat that I myself am very excited to read and that’s the new cyberpunk futuristic series Tokyo Ghost drawn by none other than Sean Murphy.  Now he did 2 covers this week for the new series and quite honestly I couldn’t just add one and leave the other out.  Both looked stunning and simply put, both deserved the list this week.  Finally we have another familiar artist Eric Powell and his marvelous take on the Spirit.  It has a very classic feel to it pleasing to the eyes.

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!

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/15/2015

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/15/2015

Here are my choices for top comic book covers.  As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!

This was a bleak week for comic book covers for me.  I had a difficult time finding 10 covers that stood out amongst the rest of the flock.  However after much determination and a banana shake I was able to pick them.  First off we have a new series from Dark Horse that mostly caught my eye because of the plot.  Archie vs. Predator and really I am serious.  Eric Powell’s Predator was seriously badass even if there was a hamburger beneath his privates.   I gave Bloodshot Reborn two wins cause I wanted to.  Dirty Harry style from Butch Guice and an interesting interpretation from Jeff Lemire artist of Descender, the one optioned by Sony for a movie.

Next a beautifully drawn and colored virgin variant for Capture Creatures #3 by artist Maggie Rudy; it made me feel good.  Another hot artist right now is Sean Murphy and his Chrononauts variant homage to none other than the guys in Top Gun is actually quite fitting if you are reading the new series by Mark Millar and Sean Murphy; mimicking the arrogant alpha males of the movie minus the intelligence or is it stupidity, not sure yet.  Joe Benitez did an interesting cover for Executive Assistant Iris volume 3 annual but the waste is just so damn small!

Another cute homage cover to the now infamous Days of Future Past titled Nutmeg of all things, nice.  Damien Worm is a very intriguing artist, like Jae Lee he has interesting lines creating fantastic covers and the October Faction is no exception.  I’ve been noticing Sara Richard over the past few weeks now with her ingeniously done My Little Pony covers and it’s good to see her branch out finally to other stories; love the artwork!  Finally Mike Norton did a…well an interesting cover to say the least.  If you have been following the series then well yeah creepy.

Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!

Armor Hunters Event – Shared Exclusive 18-Part Connecting Mega-Cover (Valiant Entertainment)

Armor Hunters Event - Shared Exclusive 18-Part Connecting Mega-Cover

This is something I haven’t seen done in a while, at least to this magnitude.  The ambition by Valiant Entertainment to publish a 18-Part mega-cover variant set spanning 5 series was done well.  Above I painstakingly pieced together the entire set for your viewing pleasure in Photoshop.  I thought valiant did well with the set but I’m not sure if it boosted sales at all for the company.  I’ve kept an eye on the top 300 and have seen a significant decline in the companies sales of all their series, even their flagship X-O Manowar.  I myself am a huge fan of Archer & Armstrong series that recently ended at issue 25.  We’ll see how the company fares as they launch new series in the next year.
