Cover of the Week!

Cover of the Week is a presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.

This week we have Jurassic Park Redemption #1 by Frank Miller

WAIT WHAT?
JURASSIC PARK?!
YES THAT’S RIGHT!
JURASSIC PARK
!

I’ve always said that Batman books usually have great covers. This week saw an army of good Batman covers. We have Return of Bruce Wayne, Detective Comics, and Streets of Gotham featuring awesome Batman art. I would have easily chosen any of the Batman books to be the cover of the week, but this week belongs to DINOSAURS!

Let me ask you, when was the last time you saw a Dinosaur in a comicbook cover? Ok, and when was the last time you saw a dinosauar in a comicbook cover eating a person?! And when was the last time you saw a dinosaur in a comicbook cover, eating a person, and drawn by Frank Miller!

Sure, a lot of people hate Frank Miller for his All Star Batman & Robin stint (and his newly Hollywood showbiz “sellout” status), and not that many people like his art style. But you can never deny the awesomeness of a freaking DINOSAUR!

Design-wise, the near-blank background efficiently contrasts the detailed T-rex drawing. The logo is also unconveniently placed on the bottom-right (compared to normal top-banner logos), guiding the reader to look at the logo after viewing the main image. Sort of a diagonal directional composition technique. Subtle yet effective.

Now, i’m not justifying my pick with all that technical giberrish design fag talk. I mainly picked this because of the fact that dinosaurs are awesome, and nobody can deny their awesomeness!

EVEN BATMAN KEEPS A DINOSAUR IN HIS BATCAVE! THAT’S HOW AWESOME DINOS ARE!

  1. Nice choice ! I’m pretty sure it’s a Spinosaurus though. It’s fairly obvious that its not a rex, given that it has more than two fingers 🙂
