Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 2/18/2015
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!
Hot diggity damn this week was chalked full of amazing comic book covers ranging in styles from regular to the virgin variant! If you could believe that I actually had a hard time slimming down my selections to 10. This makes it an exciting week since that doesn’t happen very often. As for Dynamic Entertainment, again they killed it with artwork from a variety of artists like Emanuela Lupacchino, Tim Seeley, and Ken Haeser. I had to slim down that group so Chaos by Emanuela and Legenderry Green Hornet by Cedric Paulat both being the virgin variants made the list. Art work was simply stunning to say the least.
Riley Rossmo’s virgin variant of Burning Fields #2 caught my eye as another amazingly well done piece of artwork. I’m not much into zombies and Texas Chainsaw Massacre style comics but Crossed Badlands #72 was just creepy, so cudos to Nahuel Lopez for that slighly distasteful (chopsticks and eyeballs?) but well done cover. Mike Mignola drew another Dark Horse Presents cover. Been a big fan of his work for a long while now and no disappointments here. Same old Hellboy looking good as ever. Ivan, Timewalker is another new series by Valiant that I have yet to pick up but it does look interesting. I like the super rare variant done by Ramon Villalobos and reminds me a bit of Nick Pitarra’s work; another favorite of mine.
Lady Mechanika and what seems to be another steampunk style comic cover. Done well with intricate detail on and around the woman. Joe Benitez now has a place on my Pininterest site as his artwork is soon becoming another favorite. I love how these covers look like they would take a rather long time to produce adding to the overall viewing pleasure and collectability. Plunder stood out because it was different and like some of the Dynamic Entertainment covers released this week are true pieces of artwork that can stand the test of time. Now switching gears I found a cute Teen Titans variant cover done by Sean Galloway. Finally a Finch cover worth mentioning. Yeah that might get me into trouble but I’ve had conflicted feelings with the way he draws Wonder Woman. I was worried for what seemed to be inconsistencies in the way he drew the superhero. However with each consecutive release he seems to be zeroing in on how the character should look and reeling in the series. This cover showed a part of Wonder Woman that you don’t normally see, broken and without hope. Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!
