Cover of the Week is my presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.
This week’s cover is a no-brainer for me. Since the book’s so good and the art didn’t disappoint, it’s also safe to say that it’s the best issue of the week, and also the one with the best cover. So without further ado, ladies and gents, children and children of mind, I present thee, BIG ASS ROBOT.
Gigantic #1 art & cover by Eric Nguyen
What I like about this is that though it uses the classic “pyramid” format, Nguyen is able to portray a scene where there’s this big robot going through a city, people below are panicking, big robot is being attacked by flying things, and the best part is, you don’t know if the robot guy is angry/destroying the city, or is also running away from the flying shooting things like how the people under him are running away. It’s art with a mix of emotions accompanied with a warm-cool color feel.
Runner ups: Amazing Spider-Man #576 (Chris Bachalo), Final Crisis: Resist (Ryan Sook)
Bonus! Panel of the Week: Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #1
Ahh, life lessons from your friendly spooky bat-person.
That’s all for this week!
