Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 56

Deathlok #4
by Mike Perkins

I'm loving the resurgence of spy themed covers as of late, and this is one of the best I've seen. The use of negative outline and the giant dominoes is really fun.

Justice League United #8
by Karl Kerschl

I love the insane alien colors on this cover–it really sells the weird tone that anything involving Adam Strange ought to, and it's just a cool concept.

 All-New Ultimates #12
by David Nakayama

The Waldo homage is absolutely killer, especially when used for "The Final Showdown". Spot on and fun as hell to explore!

 Astro City #19
by Alex Ross

One of Ross's best covers for this series, I really like the perspective. At first glance, you might think this character is falling, have just received a punch, but a closer look and tilt of the head reveals the sheer joy the character is having.

 Star Wars #1
by Salvador Larroca

The main cover by Cassaday is good and all, but I prefer this version. The nostalgia factor is strong with this one.

 Daredevil #12
by Chris Samnee

The dizzying perspective and depth here is unmatched and expertly done. Plus, gotta love the classic comic cover pose Daredevil is pulling!

 Hexed #6
by Dan Mora

I always remember reading that Batman and Robin #1 had a yellow background because it was the least common color in comics covers. That must still hold today because this cover is incredibly eye-catching. The subjects on the cover, too, are really excellently rendered and worth some study–a really intriguing cover! 

 Resurrectionists #3
by Juan Doe

And now an Egyptian themed spy style cover. I love the lined design that only suggests the shapes of sarcophagi and the symmetry of it all.  

 Conan Red Sonja #1
by Dan Panosian // Dave Stewart

The cartooning work on display here is fantastic and dynamic, and the rich color palette only makes it more exciting! 

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