Each week we sift through our buy pile and choose some of our favorite comic covers for the week's new releases. This week was a tough one as there were plenty of beautiful covers to choose from. As usual, we are sure there are some we may have missed so be sure to let us know which are your favorites by posting them in the forums below!
Sometimes it's hard to overlook a solid superhero, action shot. That's exactly what happened when we got a peek at the cover to ACTION COMICS #19 by Tony S. Daniel. The anatomy of Superman is great and Tony proves with this image that every once in a while he can knock it out of the park as an artist.
Sometimes all it takes to make a great cover is to think abstractly, such is the case for the cover to BLACKACRE #5 where the story is revealed in the silhouette of a cloaked figure. It's different which is what really struck us and stood out to us above the rest.
Francesco Francavilla's DARK SHADOW'S #15 cover is all kinds of creepy, focusing in on the series' main character who is seemingly shrouded in darkness. It's a beautiful image: striking, compelling and well illustrated.
Billy Tan's DEADPOOL #7 variant cover has absolutely nothing to do with Deadpool, but that's ok. The variant showcases "Iron Man's many armors" and the execution of perspective is really something spectacular.
Artist Brian Boland knocks it out of the park with his cover to DIAL H #11. The image is very simple, but incredibly articulate at the same time. Looking at the picture it seems almost as if it comes alive off of the page, illustrated and colored in a way that gives it this appearance of being three dimensional. It's a great picture and is really well done.
James Stokoe's cover to GODZILLA HALF CENTURY WAR #5 is beautiful. The amount of time, effort and detail that went into illustrating this cover is clear, which is why we can't help but put it on our list.
