Here are some of our favorite comic covers for this week. What are some of yours?
It's an image that everyone has been talking about for a week -- Jim Lee's cover to JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 where Wonder Woman and Superman are flying through the air, sharing an embrace. Regardless of how you feel about the "new status-quo," according to DC creator Jim Lee, it is what it is. What we might all be able to agree on, however, is that it's a heck of a cover.== TEASER ==
Next up is the cover to UNCANNY X-FORCE #30. Not only does Jerome Opena do an incredible job painting a pretty picture, but he does a fantastic job capturing the theme of this issue. Here we have Genesis standing in a wheat field outside of what he believes to be his home and in the clouds, overlooking the scene, is the face of evil. It's a great picture and captures a truly beautiful landscape.
The cover to AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #11 by Chris Samnee and Javier Rodriguez is fantastic. The image is simple and sweet; with Peter Parker and Aunt May sharing a sweet moment at the breakfast table. I love the fact that Parker's collar and sweater alludes to his Spider-Man costume. It's a great moment captured on a really pretty cover.
The variant cover for AQUAMAN #12 is just...well...Fantastic. We sort of have no words.
Finally is this week's cover to CAPTAIN MARVEL #3. Carol Danvers, soaring downwards through the air like a bullet -- it's just fantastic. Ed McGuinness gets help from artists Dexter Vines and Javier Rodriguez to create a retro-looking image for the cover to the series' third issue; and it fights right in with the tone and theme of the book's current story arc. The vibrant colors are eye-catching and really stand out.
