Cover of the Week – May 23, 2012

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 features one of the masters of horror and creepy art! The one and only, Richard Corben!

Ragemoor #3 by Richard Corben

Not a lot of people like Richard Corben’s art. But nobody can deny his genius when it comes to drawing horror comics, it’s even synonymous with his name! If you say Richard Corben, the first thing that comes to mind is horror comics!

Corben made the tentacles the main focus of this cover. The red spots highlight them against the blue background, and he also drew the limbs like how they would look like in the real world. Functional and realistic, and also paying a lot of attention to detail like how the limbs expand and contract when gripping an object.  Great stuff!

Other books with pretty covers: All Star Western #8, Dark Horse Presents #12, and Unwritten #37

Cover of the Week – April 26

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 Avengers week, so I guess everyone is busy looking at pictures of Iron Man, Thor, Cap, Hulk, ScarJo, and Jeremy Renner on the internet!

And speaking of Avengers, this week we have a lone Avenger for our cover of the week:

Moon Knight #12 by Alex Maleev

Now, I am a big fan of Maleev’s work, both covers and interiors. Ever since I’ve seen his work in Daredevil, I’ve never stopped following his projects. And I must say, his covers are one of the most iconic covers I’ve seen in Marvel.

This is a classic Maleev cover where he features the character in his full glory, while utilizing a design as minimalist as possible. In this case, using a full body pose with the bright moon as background, then frame it with his fist holding his signature weapon. And with that, we can see the character’s basic essence in one simple striking image!

To bad it’s the last issue. I’ll miss you, MK.

Now, here’s some other covers that I thought were pretty cool too:

See you next week!
