Aliens: Dead Orbit #1
by James Stokoe
Stokoe doing Aliens is the kind of pairing that you can't believe has never happened before. His monster illustrations and signature color palette are a perfect match for the franchise, and I love the figure echo on this cover.
by Chris Wildgoose
I love the colors and the minimalist background. It contrasts nicely with the dynamic action in the foreground, and the physicality of the figures is fantastic.
Batman / The Shadow #1
by Cliff Chiang
It's rare for a cover to be both classic and clever, much less on a crossover mini-series such as this. Chiang nails it 100% here!
Doom Patrol #6
by Nick Derington
The glowing title is bold, but I love that it is an actual object that the characters are lit by and staring in awe at. It's an interesting and unique meta cover that perfectly fits the tone of the series.
The Rift #4
by Leno Carvalho
Once again, Carvalho managed to come up with an engaging concept that fits with the design of the rest of the series' covers. I particularly like the angles created by the shadows and the title on this one.
Ultimates 2 #6
by Christian Ward
This is what Ward does best, the kind of abstract, cosmic illustrations that beg for you to fall into their kaleidoscopic depths examining them.
