Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 6/1/2016

Ah, my birthday was last week and on top of aging I had to move since we sold our house.  So I opted not to blog last weekend simply because of the time constraint.  However I’m back this week with another top 10 covers and you are correct, there are no DC covers this week.  I’m not sure what they are doing over there but most of them (excluding Vertigo) were simply god awful and albeit most were for the new rebirth event, which got me thinking that quite possibly everyone is in disarray with this event, artists including so we’ll see what’s penciled out next week.

Up first is a beautifully Tula Lotay cover for 4001 AD.  I still enjoy every out-of-the-box style cover that comes out of the mind of Tula.  Following that is a rather in your face old school advertisement of Iron Man vs. Captain Marvel with the new Marvel Civil War II event.  I wonder if this even will top Mark Millar’s Civil War event that took place back in 2006-07.  Here is a wonderful interview concerning just that with Civil War II’s writer, Brian Michael Bendis.  Next up are a couple of Deadpool covers, one by Rob Liefeld and the other by Francisco Herrera.  Both have their own unique style and both are rather good but for very different reasons.  Rob Liefeld’s cover is of a more old school Deadpool, the badass Deadpool of sorts, while the latter has just a funkiness that I cannot explain but it just works.  Look at it and let me know what you think.  Of course we have Skottie Young and mind you he hasn’t been in the top 10 for  a bit so I can safely say my bias towards the artist has faded somewhat.

Next we have Miss Fury and incentive cover created by Jonathan Lau.  With the viewpoint of the cover I thought it had quite a bit of detail concerning the flood of characters caring Miss Fury.  Each and every face mask was created with thoughtfulness and care helping the illumination of life and detail creating this eye catching cover.  Next up is a rather haunting view into the world of the Punisher.  This incentive cover created by Vanesa Del Rey has this ominous undertone that creeps up on you working its way into the most dark inner parts of your mind.  If that is the case then just please review Skottie Young’s cover of Goddamned again so you can snap back to reality, rest assured I’m smiling again as well.  Next up is a cover by Yasmine Putri for Spider-Women Omega, which is a new release out from Marvel.  I find Yasmine’s artwork fascinating to look at, clean lines, color matching excellence, always a pleasure to see her work, check out her blog!  Wow, would you look at that.  Bepop and Rocksteady are in for a treat with their new mini-series or possibly more, I’m really not sure.  All I know is they are gonna mess with the time stream because you know, they have the smarts to actually do that sort of thing.  Yes, those mutant turtles are the only ones experienced enough to stop the brutes so it should be an entertaining story line to follow.  Of course with a new series release you have a bunch of variant covers, however Dustin Weaver’s subscription variant caught my eye as he actually captured the two dumb asses as looking like really fearsome bad asses.  You see how I played with those words there?  I know you are proud aren’t you, well besides that, his cover was by far the best of the bunch from that issue.  Last on our place is a cover by Eric Powell, but I decided on the pure art form of the virgin variant since it showcased the most from Mr. Powell’s artwork.

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 10/14/2015

 

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!

This week brings us another Star Wars miniseries written by none other than Gerry Duggan.  With this new series out from Marvel brings us a butt load of #1 variants two of which make the top 10 list this week.  First off is a variant cover by Ariel Olivetti whose depiction of the famous copilot of the Millennium Falcon almost looks as real as would a stand-in if she had painted the portrait herself.  Next cover is one by our (maybe just mine) beloved inventor the the Marvel Baby universe, Skottie Young.  How can you not like this cover, it’s just so damn cute.  Next we have a gritty cover from a new series out by a small publisher called Clandestino.  There seems to be a lot of talk about this first issue and the secondary market price has steadily been increasing since it sold out this past week.  Keep an eye on it and let me know if anyone out there gets a chance to read it.

Next we have 2 more covers by Skottie Young, so I suppose I’m kind of a sellout for him this week.  Eh, it’s my list, bitch if you want…and to be honest from the look at the rather short comment history of this blog, nobody ever does.  So Guardians of the Galaxy issue #1 was cute cause Skottie can just make Groot look freaking lovable.  As you can see it’s some of the old team and Kitty Pryde, now known as Star-Lady.  Next we have Skottie Young’s new self created initial release title I Hate Fairyland.  It’s only right that this be on the list as I’ve been keeping track of his progress from his blog site.  Another cover that looked amazing this week was none other than Greg Tocchini’s Low #10.  Yes I know that covers from this series have made it on the list in the past but to be honest when you look at the pool of covers this week that this one is truly a work of art, as most from artist for this series.  Kelley Jones had a rather peculiar cover for a title that I thought would never grace this list and that was for Spongebob Comics #49.  I found that the re-imagined grim feel for the characters to be rather refreshing from the norm.

Another new series out by a small publisher was Switch and I found Stjepan Sejic’s regular release cover to be pretty eye catching to say the least.  The Cosplay variant for Swords of Sorrow had that oil painting look about it and looking closely each character was drawn proportionally well to each other making it a stand out cover.  Finally we are left with J. Scott Campbell’s rendition of the new Uncanny Avengers Volume 3 incentive variant.  His application of the pencil to each character is always done thinly and cleanly.  I swear, if T.V. makes you lose 10 pounds, Campbell’s take makes each character lose 20 without losing the realistic appeal.

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 7/15/2015

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!

Hello all, welcome to another installment of the weeks top 10.  Let’s start with Big Trouble in Little China where Rob Guillory, you know the artist from Chew, has created another hilarious virgin variant for all fans alike.  He has such a unique drawing style that you can’t help but enjoy watching his interpretation come alive on both cover and inner pages of any book.  I only hope he continues to draw for many years to come as I’ll be dedicated fan reading whatever he’s involved with.  Next we have an artist that has fairly recently appeared on my radar screen.  Babs Tarr has a way with the curving of lines and that seems to bring out some really amazing pieces of work.  Black Canary is no exception where Babs has created the retailer incentive variant.  Everything has been drawn in almost a fluid like way pouring from his hands onto the paper.  I just love looking at this cover.

Following that we have the new Valiant storyline centered around all of the characters in that universe.  The Book of Death will be something I’ll pick up and Valiant has pulled almost every artist in its arsenal for this series.  Paolo Rivera is one of those artists and has created one of the retailer incentive covers; pretty cool Geomancer.  Another fairly new artist that I have fallen in love with is Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic.  Her images have been so stunning to look at that every time I’m able to gaze on one of them I feel almost humbled in a way.  She has such raw talent that I can only hope I’m able to meet her someday in person.  Make sure to take a look on Tumblr.com Jelena for some additional images created by Jelena.

A new book out this week called the Death Head from Dark Horse caught the eye from the sheer creepiness factor.  Not sure what it’s about but I may pick it up to at least get an idea of where it’ll be going.  Rob Guillory takes credit for another odd creation for Guardians of Knowhere.  This is a complete 180 from his normal work and was a must for the list because of that.  I know Skottie Young is back but back with non baby variants.  Instead we get to see the swag coming from Peter Quill as he should be portrayed.  A unique almost Spirited Away feel comes from Lumberjanes #16 by Kat Philbin.  Isaac Goodhart’s oddly proportioned Postal image is actually good, odd that the drawing feels larger and was trimmed to size on purpose for this specific viewpoint.  I wonder if that was the case?  And finally we have Mike Norton’s freaky cool yet wierd image of our pregnant crazy.  All I can say is that while it’s simple in nature, the image sticks in your head for quite some time afterwards.  Don’t you agree?

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 7/8/2015

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!

With my slight break from the top 10 coinciding with last weeks 4th of July celebration we are back on track with another week of covers.  So lets dive right in with our first cover by Sebastian Fiumara and his take on the characters centered around Hellboy.  I actually thought they were done pretty well and a lightly different take on a couple of them, mainly the women.  Next is a favorite of my from Skottie Young and his take on the Age of Apocalypse.  I picked up the Age of Apocalypse omnibus back when it first came out (before the price skyrocketed) and it soon became a favorite Marvel storyline of mine.  That and Rick Remender’s fantastic Uncanny X-Force run; Deadpool so rocks.  This next one really goes in hand with the show.  If you aren’t up to speed with the T.V. series Teen Titans Go! then well, skip this cover and move on.  Dan Hipp really captured the moment with Batman and Gordon spot on.  Just like the show, both goofballs are usually cracking up like their portrayal on the cover and usually after some crazy funny event the Teen Titans are involved with.

Luna Ouyang created a fantastic image for Classic Popeye #36, very beautifully done and by far different from many of the covers released this week.  Descender releases #5 and with that another image from Dustin Nguyen.  His art has definitely passed the uniqueness category from other covers, which always seems to halt the eyes while flipping through the covers.  Eternal Soulfire #1 cover image of the beautiful warrior fairy done by Michael Turner caught the eye simply because the proportions of the woman I felt were spot on.  Yeah wings but in all seriousness there have been a lot of drawings of women as of late and I feel like a lot of them are off.  It could just be me but this one needs to be given credit where credit is due.

Justice League Of America Vol 4 #2 by Francis Manapul made the list almost with the coloring style done on the cover.  There is a lot going on in this cover and all was brought forth by 2 colors, shading seems to cover the rest, well done.  Now I haven’t been following Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos and I really should be but this weeks variant by Giuseppe Camuncoli caught my eye with the use of shadowing that brought forth the mummy as the centerpiece of the cover.  I really like this cover and how it was drawn and then colored.  Phil Noto made the list with his drawing for Spider-Verse Vol 2 #3 and finally the water colored image of Strange Fruit #1 variant by JG Jones and it’s wraparound debut.  Very different, eye catching, thought provoking so keep your eyes out for this series.

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 List (Alphabetical Order…)

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 6/24/2015

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!

This week we see the continuation of DC Comics’  celebration variant cover event for The Joker 75th Anniversary and with that lands 2 on my top 10 list.  First was Walter Simonson’s rather ingenious way of incorporating the Joker’s iconic image into an underwater scene for Aquaman issue #41.  Smiling sharks just make ya wanna laugh, am I right?  The other was Karl Kerschl’s Superman cover with the odd couple in what seems to be a rather intriguing fantasy the Joker could actually dream up.  Next we have one of the best looking covers to come around in a while and that was Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic’s Ninjak cover.  The deadly red head looks utterly beautiful, drawn to perfection with every curve.  Planet Hulk’s cover jumped out at me while cruising over the cover selection list.  I think it was just done really well with that extra little love added to the scene.  Each character was cleanly drawn and proportions were to scale.

I’ve been enjoying a lot of Siya Oum’s covers as of late and Psycho Bonkers was no exception, plus the title is pretty nifty as well.  Spread almost went anime on me this week and if only right?  What a cool concept if done looking more like Japanese Anime.  I still love the overall work as I’m reading the series but the cover just got me thinking…what if?  Suiciders had another detail oriented cover.  Yeah it’s of an arm but really, look at the thing, hell the shading is even spot on so yeah, kudos to Lee Bermejo for that piece of art.

I’m a huge Transformers fan and I haven’t seen much of Naoto Tsushima’s work but I hope to now after seeing his interpretation of Windblade.  With the curves in the face she almost has an Aztec thing going on around her face and head piece.  One of the most feminine drawings of Windblade done well so far, and I’d like to mention again…done well.  Lastly two X-Men ’92 covers made the list for vary different reasons.  The first was Pepe Larraz’s flashback cover of the group with a slightly modern touch; Jubilee’s rocking the pink glasses.  The other was Skottie Young’s interpretation of the group, cute yes but I like his baby group pictures; again Jubaliee looks awesome!

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 List (Alphabetical Order…)

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 6/10/2015

Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers.  These covers got my attention and whether being good or not, are deserving of your attention as well.

Unfortunately I was bedridden this past weekend and into the beginning of the week, thus had no time nor the energy to find any comic book covers from the past week, let alone write about them.  However, I was finally able to find my 10 last night and in essence of time and energy I’m gonna keep this one short as I’m already 3 days late on the posting.   Their were some pretty interesting covers over the lot released last week and the main one that jumps out at ya was by far the 21st Century Tank Girl variant by Jamie Hewlett.   If this doesn’t sellout from the content of the new series then at least this cover will help it along.  I wouldn’t be surprised if this cover becomes hard to get just either simply because of it’s rather obvious and hilarious well done drawing.  As for the rest, Batman and Starfire both had 2 covers listed this week.  Both are deserving of being on the top 10 and Starfire definitely had a great badass approach by Emanuela Lupacchino and then the cute fun version from Amanda Conner.  As for Skottie Young, well I couldn’t pass this one up.  The cover made me smile too much to ignore.  As for the rest, well take ’em as they are.

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

Top 10 List (Alphabetical Order…)

  • 21st Century Tank Girl #1 Incentive Jamie Hewlett Variant
  • Adventures Of Aero-Girl #2 Variant Jose Dex Garcia
  • Batman Vol 2 #41 Regular Greg Capullo
  • Batman Vol 2 #41 Variant Sean Murphy The Joker 75th Anniversary

Comic Book Review: Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars (Marvel)

Published by Marvel, May 2015
Story: Cullen Bunn
Art: Matteo Lolli
Colors: Ruth Redmond
Letterer: VC’s Joe Sabino
Covers By: Tony Harris, John Tyler, Nick Ganzin, Skottie Young, and others…

Synopsis: So when I heard that Marvel was doing another crazy mega event concerning centered around the end result of the Multiverse I was like…another one?  I hope this is it because seriously this entire storyline has become so damn confusing that I honestly do not have a clue what is really going on.  Now this Secret Wars was done before, back in the 80’s and just like all fads, they end up resurfacing when the idea pool has all dried up.  Enter Deadpool, I’m a huge fan of the character and usually love most stories he partakes in.  When I heard he had a take on this storyline, the one done back in the 80s I was sold.  The premise is just this…taken directly from the book…”Back in 1985, all the big heroes were taken to space for a Secret War and her’s what REALLY happened!”  Yes, written by yours truly so lets jump on board with our first issue. (more…)

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 5/20/2015

 

Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers.  These covers got my attention and whether being good or not, are deserving of your attention as well.

There definitely wasn’t a shortage of amazing artwork this week and I had an immensely difficult time narrowing down my search to just 10 covers.  I also felt that I shouldn’t let any one publisher runaway with the list.  However after much internal debate with me, myself, and I, I think that I’ve accomplished this weeks task.  First off A-Force is a new series my Marvel and with that came a barrage of varying artist covers.  Most were pretty darn good and that usually doesn’t happen from a big publisher.  Stephanie Hans variant cover was simply amazing prompting me to create a folder for her artwork up on Pinterest: Stephany Hans.  Jim Cheung was up next with his regular cover and I found it fascinating to see so many characters.  I mean yes we have seen many variations of covers with a bunch of characters on it but he melded together in great detail each one clearly in that they are easily identifiable, so yeah, damn good job!

Now Dustin is a pretty hot artist right now but I just found his Archie vs. Predator cover humorous.  Not to mention it’s about Archie and his buddies against one of the most cunning and vicious hunters in the known universe.  Next Deadpool has a new series called Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars and yeah I’m gonna read it and yeah he is dead but hey, I love Deadpool.  Skottie Young hasn’t made the list in a while but I couldn’t pass this one up, Hulk and Black Widows faces are just too damn funny.  LaRosa’s Ninjax cover is badass and the blobs of blood only add to the oozing affect of badass-ness extruding from the front cover, go buy it!

Michael Del Mundo’s Planet Hulk cover had great imaginative artistry going, love the fist intertwined with smaller fists.  Jae Lee had a bunch of covers out this week, along with Francesco Francavilla but his Re-Animator #1 was by far the best.  Jay Anacleto created a work of art for Red Sonja Vultures Circle #4.  It almost looks like something you would find in an art museum.  Jenny Frison did an amazing job on her rendition of Vampirella, the colorist should get some credit as well.  It really brought that cover to life.  Finally Steve Epting’s Winter World Frozen Fleet new series cover had life to it.  I may need to pick up this second arc.

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

Weekly Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 5/6/2015

Here are my personal choices for this weeks top 10 comic book covers.  These covers got my attention and whether being good or not, are deserving of your attention as well.

A new series out this past week is named Arcadia and the retailer incentive virgin variant by Scott Pfeiffer stood out amongst the rest of the group simply because of the shear detail that went into creating the landscape and our bedridden patient.  Just so many beautiful lines.  Next we have a Peter Bergting cover for issue #1 of Baltimore Cult Of The Red King.  Another cover that made my list is part of the Convergence event and yes, it’s the Harley Quinn cover.  I chose it because of the unique pastel colors and the somewhat HDR feel it offers.

A new series out this week is Dead Drop and I plan on reading it as well.  Great character detail, especially in Archer.  Another Emanuela Lupacchino cover this week from the John Carter series, so beautifully drawn that I couldn’t pass up.   Finally Amy Reeder’s awesome series Rocket Girl has landed itself back on the grid.  I’m not really sure why after issue 5 it took so dang long for issue 6 to publish.  I know that all my preorders of this series past 5 were canceled by Midtown Comics and months later I had to preorder the same covers again so if anyone know please enlighten me on the status of the group.

I really want to follow Secret Wars but with all the tie-ins and offshoots I’m hesitant to even try.  Doesn’t stop me from qualifying the new issue drawn by none other than Alex Ross.  Jim Cheung also contributes to the event depicting two factions.  Been a while since our next artist made the list but I did enjoy Skottie Young’s cover for the Secret Wars event, very cute.  Finally we have a beautifully drawn celebration of Wonder Woman from the 70’s that includes the woman that played her in the original TV series, Lynda Carter.  Check out the Wiki Site describing the TV Series, made it for 3 seasons.

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

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/11/2015

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/11/2015

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 weeks lot of regular and variant covers and while Dynamic Entertainment has been releasing amazing covers week by week, this week

Yes another Jae Lee cover and I believe is well deserved.  I’ve had no problem sharing my fascination with his work and yes I admit that I may have difficulty treating his work impartially.   However, not all his covers make my list but when they do they do for good reason.  This weeks Action Comics cover made the list with detail.  I just love the way he is able to make Superman look so badass.  Mark Brooks’ Ant Man cover also caught my with sheer detail.  Also, a part of me has pondered when we would actually see the tiny superhero in a situation of life or death from being devoured.  The graphic nature of his dire situation on the cover stirred unsettling feelings of the potential to be ingested by some being.  Definitely an awesome cover by Mr. Brooks!

Yes, again we find ourselves in the confines of Chaos and with each week brings amazingly well drawn, well colored works of virgin variant art!  This week Nei Ruffino’s rendition was drawn and colored nicely and pleasing for my eyes.  Chip Zdarsky made the list with his 3D layered approach of King Flash Gordon #2 variant.  Ninjak’s new series by Valiant Entertainment was released this week with Lewis LaRosa’s drawn cover blasting out of the gates.  Ninjak is a very diverse and complicated character, like so many in the Valiant universe, and I have high hopes for this series.  Just please Valiant, bring back my Archer & Armstrong…please?!?  Matt Brooks’ Red Sonja #14 cover had good use of color and technique.

Skottie Young has a cover for Sinergy and yes it isn’t a Marvel Baby cover.  Well drawn as always in Skottie Young fashion allowing us to revisit why we all love his work excluding the babies!  He’s the type of artist that can take an idea and turn it inside out providing that take on something not easily seen or imagined.  He literally can make anything extraordinary out of the boring or obtuse.; a true out-of-the-box thinker.  Liked the cover for the new series Southern Cross, keeps the mystery at hand.  I’m curious if anyone else has pick up this book and if so, is it worth the read?  Todd McFarlane is back with a vengeance drawing a variant cover for Spawn Resurrection and yes making Spawn look more intimidating than ever.  Finally Sara Pichelli drew a beautiful rendition of Spider-Gwen for this weeks retailer incentive variant.

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

Top 10 List (Alphabetical Order…)

  • Action Comics Vol 2 #40 Incentive Jae Lee Variant
  • Ant-Man #3 Regular Mark Brooks
  • Chaos #4 High-End Nei Ruffino Virgin Art Ultra-Limited Variant Cover (ONLY 25 COPIES IN EXISTENCE!)
