Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 57

Guardians of the Galaxy #23
by Christian Ward

Dudes, how epic is this? These are some masterful watercolors that are beautiful but at the same time feel dangerous, like an explosion of fire. Certainly one of the coolest non-variant covers out this week.

Kitchen #3
by Becky Cloonan

I love how the sensuous (both in form and color) framing contrasts the bitter colors and look of the central figure. There's something deeply frightening here.

 Lumberjanes #10
by Carolyn Nowak

Who doesn't love a classic cross-section? The muted colors on everything but the animals are excellent as well, and I love the amount of detail both in the cabin and in the nature shown.

 Ivar, Timewalker #1
by Jorge Molina

 The jumping through panels thing has been done before, but the level of depth here is really nice, and the classic looking style of the protagonist is a big draw too.
Bucky Barnes: Winter Soldier #4
by Mike Del Mundo

Del Mundo continues to blow me away with his simple concepts that are rendered with a level of beauty that's sometimes rare in covers. This is absolutely gorgeous and feels deep with emotion without saying a word.

 Batman and Robin #38
by Dave Bullock

I've liked a lot of these Flash variants this month, and while many have him popping into classic DC covers, this is one of the few where he's actually participating. Bullock is a perfect choice for this kind of fun revisionist look at classic covers.

 Scarlet Spiders #3
by David Nakayama

Brilliant concept that's rendered effortlessly. It's hard to believe this hasn't been done before!

 Dark Horse Presents #6
by Scott Kolins

I really dig the classic pulp sci-fi look here, and how the cover tells a story and has a lot of movement to it. Great design on the typography and title elements as well that add to the pulp feel. 



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