Cover of the Week – Feb 4, ’10 releases

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 everyone! I hope you didn’t miss me that much.  This week we feature a book by the “wonder twins”, Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba.

Okay, this cover looks just how the book’s title says it is — trippy.  So here, on the top part of the cover, we see a guy who’s swimming underwater then as we go down it gently blends into two guys looking at the sky, which is really a guy underwater with dudes looking at him from a desert cliff.  What?  Exactly!  The composition of this book is very well done, light blue/white tones on the upper part which highlights and focuses our title, then it slowly transitions into dark waters/cloudy horizon in the middle, then back into a sunlit effect on a cliff at the bottom.  And I like how the use of watercolors and pens give a soft and sharp contrasting look to it. The cover also gives us a small peek as to what happens in the book.  And I must say that you need to read this issue to fully appreciate the cover (the story is amazing).    — Alex
