Cover of the Week – Jan 15 ’09 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

It’s that time of the week again.  I don’t even know why I’m doing this anymore, aside from the fact that I’m a comics art whore and that posting on the internet is the new “cool” thing these days.  So anyways, everyone’s favorite cover artist is featured this week!  Sorry, it’s not Rob.

Fables #80 (art by James Jean)

Well, who wouldn’t like some panties on their comics cover? And besides, it’s by James Jean! Awesome comics artist extraordinaire! I don’ have much to say about this man, aside that his covers are consistently good (although sometimes they’re just meh, but still better than other books), and there’s even a coffee table book collection of his Fables covers (out of stock on Amazon)! It’s that good and pretty.  His covers have this type of composition that when you see a James Jean cover, you’ll notice that it’s a James Jean cover even if the art might not really look like his.  For me, that’s what a good comics cover should be.  A good mix of art, design, composition, and that feeling that the book is calling you even if after reading it you’ll regret picking it up and blame it all on the cover for being pretty and tempting.  And for some reason, I really find the women he draws on his covers very attractive. Or maybe it’s just me.

Okay.  That’s all, folks.  Tune in after a few days to hear my manly voice talk about comics!

Cover of the Week – 11.13.08

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 kiddies, it’s that time of the week again! And that means I have to wake up earlier than usual! FUN FUN FUN! Anyways, lets dive in to my favorite comics covers from last week, not like it’s of great importance, but it’s better than reading about dancing celebrities.

Batman Cacophony #1 (cover by Adam Kubert)

cacophony

Sure, it’s not the strongest book last week, but this cover is what made me pick it up. I think it’s a good example of how a cover can influence readers (or buyers) into getting a book. Although Adam Kubert is not my favorite artist, he does pretty cool stuff. And ever since he (and bro Andy) moved to DC, I’ve notice an improvement in their art. I once read on Wizard that Adam loves Batman and likes to play with the light/dark elements of the character on art and story-wise. And I do agree that he’s able to do a pretty good Batman, I was wondering why he didn’t draw this book. It could’ve been better.

Runners-up! Fables #78 (James Jean), 100 Bullets #97 (Dave Johnson)

fables 100

These two are among my favorite cover artists. Anything they cough out is good. Anything.

Panel of the Week!

Cover of the Week – 10.16.08

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.

It looks like most of the covers I’m featuring today are for books that have variants or having multiple covers. I guess I can call this week, a VARIANT WEEK! Ok, let’s kick it off with my fave cover of last week..

Ghost Rider #28 (both covers by Marc Silvestri)

I’m not a big fan of Marc Silvestri’s art, but I do like some stuff that he puts out, like this one! I don’t have much to say about this cover (or covers), except that it packs a “punch” just by looking at it. I mean, it’s like an action scene suspended in time, with the rotating fiery wheels, blazing heads, and flinging chains. I guess it’s just catchy to the eyes, especially the blue/yellow flame thing contrasting each other.

Honorable mentions: Hack/Slash: New Reader Halloween Treat! #1 by Tim Seeley, Fall of Cthulhu #2 by Jeff Spokes, Amazing Spider-Man #573 Variant (err, Colbert) Edition by Joe Quesada (because I like Quesada), and Fables #77 by James Jean! (click for the full view)

Sorry, no Panel of the Week today. 😦
