Each week we check out all of the week's new releases and choose our favorite comic book covers. There are plenty to choose from, and of course we are sure to miss a couple so feel free to let us know what some of your favorites were for this week.
First up is the cover to ANGEL & FAITH #18 by Rebekah Isaacs. The image is stunning and creepy, and her attention to detail is fantastic. The colors are incredibly vibrant and beautifully shadowed by rising smoke.== TEASER ==
Sometimes we get an absolutely fantastic cover full of action; that's this week's AVENGERS #4 cover by Adam Kubert. The cover features Hyperion in all his glory in an incredibly detailed and intricate picture. The vibrant colors make the picture really stand out, too.
The stunning image by Art Adams for the cover of INVINCIBLE #100 is one we were really impressed by. The attention to detail in the midst of an action scene is perfectly illustrated and it left us impressed. The little word balloon was also a very nice touch.
Sometimes a lot of detail is great, and other times a simple sketch illustration will do; such is the case for Joe Kubert's cover to JOE KUBERT PRESENTS #4 of 6. The simple image clearly demonstrates Kubert's range and skill as a sketch artist.
Then there are those covers that are so ugly that they are beautiful. While it may not be the most aesthetically pleasing cover to a horror comic we have ever seen, the cover to LOT 13 #4 by artist Glenn Fabry is very well executed. There is so much going on that it's hard to know where to look first when it comes to this particular image. A ton of detail (as unattractive as it may be) means this one makes our list.
Then there is the more somber illustration of Frank Castle rising up above the masses of battered and broken Marvel heroes on the cover of PUNISHER: WAR ZONE #4 by artist Marco Checchetto. The cover has a ton of detail and Checchetto does an impeccable job playing with perspective. The zoom-in effect looking up at the character really adds the extra emphasis. Not to mention, the tone of the colors give it a pretty kind of lustre.
