The variant cover to BEFORE WATCHMEN #4 by artist Ivan Reis is stunning. There is so much attention to detail in this one, incredibly striking image. The shadows covering Rorschach's face and shrouding the character in darkness are just perfect. The way the artist uses shadows to highlight the details in the character's coat and environment is truly stunning making this one a visually striking cover, indeed.== TEASER ==
The latest cover to FAIREST #13 is absolutely breathtaking, but it's hard to expect anything less from an artist like Adam Hughes. The image is innovative and captures a moment of sheer excitement. It's incredibly well done.
Sometimes a comic cover doesn't need to be incredibly detailed to be visually striking. That is the case with the cover to BLACKACRE #4, depicting a man's bloody arms in chains before a bright, white background. It's the kind of image that makes you look twice in part because of its simplicity and the message the artist Brian Churilla is trying to convey.
Artist Adi Granov's cover to AGE OF ULTRON #1 is incredible. The detail and the minimal use of colors makes this one heck of a picture. The perspective and line work in the image is incredibly pretty and make us look at this one twice.
ADVENTURE TIME FIONNA & CAKE #3 of 6 The sweet little cover by artist Natasha Allegri is lovely. The colors by Amanda Thomas are vibrant and the cover is just really, very pretty, capturing the tone of the issue and the ADVENTURE TIME universe perfectly.
Finally, the cover to WINTER SOLDIER #16 by Declan Shalvey is fantastic the way that it plays with perspective. The minimal colors and the simplicity of the image is fantastic. The abstractness is what made us take a second glance.
