First up is BATMAN #37 by Greg Capullo, Danny Miki, & FCO Plascencia. Welcome to creepytown. Population: Joker and his old face. Everything from the look on his face to the color of his teeth makes this one eye-catching cover, in the most horrifying way possible.

Next is MANIFEST DESTINY #12 by Matthew Roberts & Owen Gieni. These guys are some fantastic artists. There's a ton of detail and craftsmanship within this piece. Gieni's color work here is exceptionally good.

THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #4 by Dave McKean

Here is THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #4 by Dave McKean. Both covers for this issue were exceptional, but McKean's stuck out a bit more because of the real emotion within the piece. The set-up and execution here are great and it captures the essence of the character well.

ELEKTRA #9 by Michael Del Mundo

Finally, here's ELEKTRA #9 by Michael Del Mundo. He always puts out some great looking covers and the amount of work that went into this piece, with all the members of the Hand and the swords had to have been a lot. It reads just as great up close as it does far away.

Twitter Pick: THE MULTIVERSITY: THUNDERWORLD #1 by Cameron Stewart

You folks picked THE MULTIVERSITY: THUNDERWORLD #1 by Cameron Stewart. There were a TON of votes this week and THUNDERWORLD got one more vote than STORM #6. THUNDERWORLD's cover just puts a smile on your face with a style reminiscent of the golden age version character. It has a great feeling of nostalgia.
