First up is the cover to FAIREST #5 really impressed us this week, and it's no wonder why. Any time artist Adam Hughes delivers a cover to any comic you can almost always guarantee it will look pretty impressive. The cover really captures both the tone and the setting of this issue; the Snow Queen sitting pretty with a polar bear, while flames -- representing Hadeon -- rage behind her.

Jae Lee's cover for BEFORE WATCHMEN: OZYMANDIAS #1 is by far the most interesting and beautiful of all the BEFORE WATCHMEN covers we've seen so far. It completely encompasses this perception that Ozymandias is an enlightened man, being portrayed in the state of meditation. He appears cross legged above the Sphynx -- it's a powerful image and it speaks volumes about the character. The detail in his robes and the warm colors compliment the image beautifully.

The cover to HELLRAISER #15 is all sorts of creepy. At the center of the cover we see the faces of both the Female Cenobite and Kristy Cotton; and behind them is a beautiful, cold and dreary backdrop. I loved the colors used in this image, and the detail in the faces of both characters as well as the background. It's a truly gorgeous cover.

Artist Arthur Adams does an exceptional job illustrating the details of Man-Thing's face for the cover to THE INFERNAL MAN-THING #1. I really loved the intricacies of this image and I think it's a shame they had to put all that lettering over the picture. The vibrant colors are really beautiful, and don't at all take away from the elusive creepiness of the character's expression. Great stuff.

We saw plenty more covers this week, so which ones stood out the most to you? Let us know in the comments and feel free to post them below!
