Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 7


This week we've got an interesting and colorful lineup!

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1
By Jae Lee

Too bad those hours spent trying to jump from point A to point B on the Nintendo 64 weren't ever as pretty as this!  Love the angle here, really makes this struggle seem even more perilous.

  Baltimore: Chapel of Bones #2
By Ben Stenbeck

We've got kind of a minimalist background theme going this week...Love the gothic look here, how the skeletons are both climbing up something and also the structure they are clambering up.  Creepy!

Bad Blood #2
By Tyler Crook

Let's keep the goth thing going for one more cover!  I thought the colors and use of watercolor were pretty striking on this one.  Also, her eyes and mouth are equally cartoonish and genuinely haunting!

  Fairest #23
By Adam Hughes

Maybe not Hughes' best cover, but certainly one of the most eye-catching.  Love the Bond style, and when I noticed the images hidden in the neon colors I like it even more.

  Batwing #28
By Mike McKone

Love, love, LOVE the design elements here.  I've got no idea if it has anything to do with the story whatsoever, but damn that would make a nice print.  Almost like an optical illusion in that if you stare long enough you can see all of Luke's face.

  Green Arrow #28
By Andrea Sorrentino

I've highlighted Sorrentino's covers for this arc before, but they continue to be just absolutely gorgeous.  I love when a cover can be both startlingly beautiful and also contain a lot of depth, allowing for a more rich visual experience, and this cover exemplifies that rarity.

Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight #5
By Francesco Francavilla

Francavilla is a favorite for this column, and I couldn't resist this one.  Recalling the Giallo Italian horror films, I love the concept and the sparse coloring.  Menacing and suspenseful, and great typography design.
That's it for this week folks!  Funny how themes come up...this week was heavy on horror and minimalist color backgrounds, but still covered a pretty wide range of comics.  What do you think?  Let us know on Twitter or Facebook
