Yes kids! Time for another edition of COVER OF THE WEEK! This time, I will showcase two covers from the past two weeks (Oct 13 & 21 releases), featuring the covers of Hellblazer – City of Demons #1 (Sean Murphy) and Thor – First Thunder #2 (Jay Anacleto)
It’s not always easy choosing the cover for the week, especially if there’s not that many good books out on that week. Most of the time, they have a generic cover format or pose; and although it’s not noticeable to most of the readers, they have a tendency to look stale and static. But there are times when gems like these are found along with average and “meh” cover art. Two books with two very different styles, but both really are very pleasing to the eyes. (oh wow, did I just make a rhyme?)
So now let’s take a look at the covers, starting with Hellblazer – City of Demons #1.
… and Thor – First Thunder #2.
And there you have it! Sean Murphy and Jay Anacleto cover of the week double feature!
If you have your own cover of the week, or if you think I don’t know my art theories (which I don’t) and I’m just making these things up (which I do). Feel free to post a comment and we can do a pokemon battle!
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.
Giggity-giggity-git! It’s that time of the week again where John spams me with IMs saying “I MISS YOU”, and I post the best of the best of the comics covers from last week’s releases. Now, without further delay, let me present, Jay Anacleto and the magic pens!
Marvels – Eye of the Camera #1 (art by Jay Anacleto)
What I like about Jay Anacleto’s art is how ultra realistic it is. I can’t name that many people in the comics world who can do ultra realistic art and still be able to draw “moving” and dynamic panels. There’s nothing much to say about this cover because the art speaks for itself. I heard he used to draw with just ballpoint pens, and aside from being a comics artist, Jay Anacleto is a full time dentist too! I’m not sure, feel free to correct me, but that’s just JAWSOME! I suggest checking out his other stuff, mainly Aria and Spawn: Godslayer.

That’s it for me, stay tuned for more comics goodness!
