Sometimes you just can't help judging a book by its cover, and if the story in CLONE #1 is as great as the two page cover spread by artists Juan Jose Ryp and Felix Serrano then it's going to be pretty awesome. The cover of the first issue is all about detail, and we loved the way the art team draws the focus of the reader by coloring only three specific characters. It's a great, really well done cover.== TEASER ==
The cover to Dark Horse's one-shot BALTIMORE: THE PLAY by artist Ben Stenbeck is eerie, creepy and really awesome. The heavy inks and the deep, reddish wash really makes the cover stand out. The blank eyes of the skull featured on the cover really draws you into the image.
Each cover by artist J.H. Williams is an absolutely masterpiece, and his cover to the latest issue of BATWOMAN #14 is no different. The picture features a cast of characters featured in the issue and is broken up by a red, white and blue graphic bordering the bottom of the image. It creates a great, very stylized frame around the picture that is very different from any of the other covers out this week.
It might be a Dark Horse kind of week, when it comes to great covers the publisher really delivered. The cover to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: SPIKE #4 is really beautiful not only because of the intricacies of the pencils used in the image, but also the way that artist Steve Morris uses different pink and purple hues to illustrate the monsters in the picture. It's a really pretty cover.
You can always bet that artist Paolo Rivera will deliver a great looking cover, and this week's DAREDEVIL #20 cover is no different. The abstractness of the image and cleanliness of the lines is what really caught our eye about the image.
Francesco Francavilla's DARK SHADOWS #12 cover for Dynamite Entertainment is brilliant. The way he creates a picture within a picture in the reflection of an eye is just really well done and very creative.
Artist Bernie Wrightson's FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE, ALIVE #2 is really well done. It's very different from a lot of other covers in the way it resembles a victorian-style portrait. It's a little bit creepy, but still very well done.
Finally, Alex Ross's cover to Dynamite Entertainment's PETER CANNON THUNDERBOLT #3 is really well done. We thought the way that Ross used some inspiration from artist Shepard Fairey's Obama poster design was great, and having it split down the center to show an image within another image was really great.
