Cover of the Week – April 11

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.

Last week was a Massimo Carnevale comics cover festival! We have 2 books that came out last week which I think had the best covers, Conan The Barbarian #3 and the final issue Northlanders #50.

I love Massimo Carnevale’s work starting way back when he was doing the covers for Y the Last Man until now. He’s an artist who’s not only good at drawing people, but also gives the reader a taste of the overall feel of the book.  Each cover is like a teaser poster that makes the reader curious and interested as to the book’s contents.

Conan the Barbarian #3 by Massimo Carnevale

Take for instance this Conan cover.  We have Conan grabbing Belit, who looks like she is seducing him, and the color tones suggest that they are in a semi-dream state underwater.  These elements appear in the book, so what you expected to read after seeing the cover is what you get within!

Northlanders #50 by Massimo Carnevale

I don’t know if I’m just being biased, but I love this cover of the final issue of Northlanders.  An abandoned broken down helmet on a rock near the sea is a good metaphor for a battle that has ended.  And the seagull’s legs show the remoteness of this battlefield.  I find this image very dramatic and brutal at the same time, just as how the whole series have been.  It’s been a great run.  I’ll miss you, Northlanders.

Here are other covers that I thought were pretty cool: Saga #2 by Fiona Staples, ‘68 Scars #1 by Nat Jones, and Lobster Johnson #4 by Dave Johnson.

 That’s all for now, see you next week for more covers goodness!
