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
