Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 22

Like Spidey here, make sure to dodge the bullet by picking up some of these great covers coming out this Wednesday!

 Elektra #2
by Mike Del Mundo

I gushed about the gorgeous cover to #1, but I think I actually like this one better. A bloody ballet that is both violent and utterly elegant. I love how transparent the process is here with the raw paint splashes!

  Zero #8
by Jorge Coelho & Tom Muller

I love the extremes they've gone to on these covers, and this one is pretty damn extreme. Camouflage taken to levels of near digital distortion, it takes a minute to see what's going on here.

  All-New Doop #2
by Mike Allred

And now for something a bit more fun! This is a funny concept, and a much more entertaining way to get at the weird revelation from the end of #1. Plus it's got 50% more Doop than any other cover this week.

The Shadow: Year One #9
by Chris Samnee

Samnee's got such a good eye for interesting perspective, plus I'm always a fan of incorporating the titles into the illustration, and this one does that pretty eye-catchingly. 

Daredevil #3
by Chris Samnee

Sorry for the Samnee Double-Feature, but I couldn't help but include both! This one has the feel of a classic comic cover, but with a level of cartooning detail that I've come to love Samnee's interiors for.

  Wonder Woman #31
by Cliff Chiang

While the composition here isn't necessarily jaw-dropping, I think it is noteworthy for it's superbly unique coloring. Chiang has been using some really interesting, bitter colors that we don't see often for Wonder Woman, and it never ceases to draw my attention!

  The 7th Sword #2
by Andrew Robinson

I really like the divided panes here with the sword as the constant. At first glance it appears very simple, but closer inspection reveals details like the reflection in the metal and the gears inside the skull. It's this level of subtle detail as well as the excellent shading on the bottom half that earned this one a spot this week! 

That's it for this week! What did I miss? Let me know on Twitter or Facebook!
