Welcome to yet another exciting Best Comic Book Covers of the Week where the Comic Vine staff picks out their favorite covers and displays them for you, the reader, to cheer and applaud awesomeness across the Intrawebs. Let's get right down to business, folks and see some of these amazing covers.
FANTOMEX #1 by Francesco Francavilla
FANTOMEX MAX #1 rolled out this week and here we have the cover by Francesco Francavilla. Francesco's work is always really cool and his covers have a big pop to them. This cover really has a 60s secret-agent feel to it because of the set-up, colors, and those cools patterns behind the title, at the top of the page. Also, we're always a sucker for a character pointing a gun at the reader.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #1 by Marco Rudy
Here we have MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #1 by Marco Rudy. What's really cool about this cover is the minimalistic use of color on the cover, which gives the cover this really cool look, which sets is a part from the rest on the shelves. There's also the very cool usage of the Spider-Man logo on the bottom half of this cover as well.
BATWING #24 by Darwyn Cooke
Up next is BATWING #24 by Darwyn Cooke. Darwyn Cooke has a very specific style that is reminiscent of of the 1950s, so seeing this cover and his name attached was a bit of a shock, since it looks a bit different from what readers are used to. The layout and perspective are incredibly cool here, as well as the color choices for the whole cover.
ALL NEW X-MEN #17 (Lego Variant) by Leonel Castellani
Are you a Legomaniac? If you are, you're probably pretty excited about this week's variant cover to ALL NEW X-MEN #17 by Leonel Castellani. This cool cover is actually an homage to Jim Lee's cover for X-Men #1 back in 1991. It's been really cool to see some classic covers with Lego characters. It's hard to take Magneto as a threat when he looks this adorable.
THE STAR WARS #2 by Nick Runge
Lastly, we have the cover for THE STAR WARS #2 by Nick Runge. Funny thing is that both covers to this issue were really cool, but we only wanted to pick out one. This cover, in particular, was the best of the two and it shows realism extremely well. Most of that is all thanks to the color work and the shading done here. This really looks like it could be a poster for a new Star Wars film. It's some seriously cool stuff.
There you have it. It's another week of cool looking covers. Do you have a cover you super-loved, but you're super-bummed it's not on this list? Let us know in the comment section below! We'll see you folks next week, from New York Comic Con, with a bunch of new favorite covers!
