Each week we sort out through all the new releases and choose some of our favorite comic book covers. This week we have plenty of cool covers to choose from, so let's not waste any more time. As usual, if there is a cover that you loved that we missed feel free to add it to the comments below.
First up is the cover to DAREDEVIL END OF DAYS #5 by artist Alex Maleev. If there were ever a cover that totally encompassed the sheer hopelessness of a story, this would be it. Filled to the brim with raw emotion, pain, agony and hopelessness, this image is beautifully illustrated and completely reflects the story inside.== TEASER ==
Next is Dave Stevens' cover to DAVE STEVENS' ROCKETEER ARTIST'S EDITION. We don't normally put covers to collected editions on our list, but we really had to make an exception this week when we saw this. Sometimes things are just better in black and white.
MULTIPLE WARHEADS is a series drawn and written by comic creator Brandon Graham and published by Image. Graham's pencils are a bit shaky but the cover to issue #4 is really detailed and very beautiful. The choice for colors is fantastic.
This week's cover to ALL-NEW X-MEN#7 by Stuart Immonen is beautiful, but it's mostly because of the cover's amazing colors. There is a tremendous amount of depth to the cover's colors and the way the artist plays with light and shadow for emphasis is fantastic.
And while colors can be what makes a cover, sometimes it's the shadows of black, white and grey that makes it work. Jock's wrap around cover for the new Image series titled SNAPSHOT is really pretty. Using only black ink for emphasis, Jock knocks it completely out of he park.
Artist Mitch Breitweiser's cover to PLANET OF THE APES CATACLYSM #6 is all about perspective. The image is beautiful, detailed and a unique cover that is sure to grab any reader. Breitweiser's classic style shines.
