Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 55

Hinterkind #14
by Marguerite Sauvage

I always dig this sort of cel-shaded style, and this cover is jammed full of interesting details, from the floating shapes to the stream of skulls. Great color work, too.
Operation S.I.N. #1
by Michael Komarck

I'm a sucker for a classic spy illustration, and this is a great one. I love the character work, but I really like the bit of photo montage for the landscape at the bottom and the architecture on top that resembles a DNA strand. Killer work!

 Robocop #7
by Goni Montes

Montes continues to absolutely destroy it on these Robocop covers. The concept here is complex and visually challenging, but at the same time thrilling and beautiful.

 Avengers No More Bullying #1
by Pascal Campion

I really dig the style and the colors in this one, how it uses minimal linework on the characters but overlays it with complicated shading from the tree above.

 Feathers #1
by Jorge Corona

Really fun cartooning work on this one–I love how everything has just a very subtle unnatural curve that brings out the cartoonish physicality. Great depth and framing between the three figures as well.

 Detective Comics #38
by Joshua Middleton

This couldn't be more fun, and besides the simple concept, it's the colors and the body language that brings this cover to life.

 Lady Killer #1
by Joëlle Jones

Jones' style on this book is pretty awesome (read our review of this issue here), and this cover starts it off right: from the relaxed but suggestive body posture to the color palette to the typography, you know exactly what this series is about from a single image.
Birthright #4
by Andrei Bressan

This is a great example of how big a difference color can make. While the framing and perspective are nice as well, the sharp contrast between the oranges of the fire and the blue sky are eye-catching even from a distance!

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