Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 54

X-O Manowar #31
by Raul Allen

It's not often you see interlocking covers for the same issue–cool idea. This is the 2nd part of the two cover set, and I really dig the design elements and the color here.

 Earth 2: World's End #13
by Andrea Sorrentino

Sorrentino is a master of designing covers that utilize monochromatic ideas and incorporated text to tell a story. Well done!

 East of West #16
by Nick Dragotta

Okay, okay–so this is a big deal because not only is it the first issue not to use the sliver/monochrome format, but there are eight covers for this issue all done by Dragotta. That feat alone is worth applause, but they happen to be great bombastic covers as well, this one especially!

 All-New Miracleman Annual #1
by Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith on a mainstream superhero cover?! I'm all in. His menacing sharpened teeth look makes the villain all the more terrifying, and the darkened background makes the primary-colored Miracle Family pop like crazy.

 Star Trek/Planet of the Apes #1
by Tone Rodriguez

'The Primate Directive'? Count me in! Also, we folks in comic books know a little secret that Star Trek hasn't taken advantage of until now: apes sell.

Well, that's it for 2014! Keep an eye on Twitter or Facebook as we'll be posting a breakdown by the numbers of the cover picks tomorrow and our TOP TEN COMIC COVERS OF 2014 on Thursday!
