Cover of the Week – 12.18.08

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.

Hello ladies and gents! Two more days and it’s Christmas! And a few more days before our year-end special episode! Now that’s two things to look out for in one week! Thanks, Santa.

And this week, we showcase a cover from megasuperstar artist Marko Djurdjevic!

Mighty Avengers #20

What I like about this cover aside from the gorgeous and anatomically accurate artwork, is the emotion it evokes to the reader. This actually made me go “BAWWWWWWWW” especially after reading Secret Invasion and its little cousin titles. Marko is an amazing artist. His compositions are awesome. His anatomy is awesome. His colors are awesome. His name is awesome and manly. It’s the subtle things in this cover that got to me. The expressive eyes and the hands. Sometimes the small things deliver the blow, the details give the impact. And when I say details, it’s not about hatching. Awesome, yes?

That’s all my energy can spare for today! Tune in later this week for our YEAR END SPECIAL EPISODE!

P.S. Next time, I promise to be fully awake when doing this column.
