Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 58

Sex #19
by Piotr Kowalski

Oh, hello there. The detailed, thick lines used here are really reminiscent of Crumb and early comix, and there's a simple color scheme that's very bold in a way.

 Catwoman #38
by Jae Lee

The negative space and total exaggeration of Batman's cape is pretty eye-catching here, but it's Lee's use of soft shading that really makes this one beautiful.

 Thor #4
by Russell Dauterman

Here's another where the negative space really makes it work, and I like the title being moved to the middle, as if the two are fighting over the title (literally). Dauterman's level of detail is impressive, but doesn't bog the colorful fun of it down.

 Zero #14
by Tom Muller, Mario Oleksicki

Zero continues to have some of the most visually unique and fascinating covers...The bold color choice and simple gradient within the outline give it an almost graffiti stencil look.

 Mind MGMT #30
by Matt Kindt

Yay for multimedia! I like the simplicity of the idea and the image despite the complex arrangement that makes it up. I'm not sure what the material is, but it looks potentially like used eraser shreds, which would fit the story quite well.

 Secret Avengers #12
by Tradd Moore

The level of detail here is absolutely gorgeous. There's a kind of mixture between Moore's very manga style and something like Geoff Darrow that's really appealing here.

 Sundowners #6
by Chris Brunner

I always dig the neon color scheme of this series' covers, but this one has some particularly impressive depth and use of body language, even in the background figures. 

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