Any cover that tries out a different process is always a good start, but Fawkes has put together something very unique, beautiful, and intriguing here.
Batman and Robin #36
by Mick Gray, Patrick Gleason
Killer color and detailed linework, but what is most impressive is how the characters pop from the background despite the potentially distracting background.
Deadly Class #9
by Wes Craig
I absolutely love this one–this is so accurate to both that style and what high school doodles might look like if you went to a high school for assassins.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #9
by Steve Morris
I dig the perspective here, and the gentle shading gives a real sense of depth and texture.
Multiversity: Pax Americana #1
by Michael Cho
How awesome is Michael Cho? I always love his style, but it's especially fitting for this issue. The canted and slightly low angle instantly lends the characters a semi-mythic stance, and the colors are fantastic!
by Tom Muller, Adam Gorham
Initially this caught my eye for the same reason as Intersect, the alternative process, but Muller has continually put out exceptionally unique covers for Zero, and this is one of my favorites. It's unclear whether this is a peaceful scene or whether there is a massive explosion happening, and that ambiguity is really interesting.
by Michael del Mundo
I've dug just about every one of these covers, and here is no exception–a clever concept, planned and executed perfectly, with the pink and yellow accents in the background excellently tying it all together.
Black Widow #12
by John Tyler Christopher
How...topical? I couldn't help but include this one. Maybe there are different (evil) versions of Anderson Cooper outside of the regular 616 universe?! CNN fanboys unite...
