Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 62

Adventure Time #37
by Troy Nixey

I've always loved the wide variety of art styles Kaboom uses for the variants on Adventure Time, and this is my favorite in a while. The contrast between the simple cartoon style of the main characters and the detailed and highly stylized monster they are fighting is pretty striking and a lot of fun.

D4ve #1
by Valentin Ramon

There's an eye-catching simplicity here with the monochromatic background, but it's the mundane-ness of the robot that is really awesome here–his posture, the clothes–everything about him screams 9-5 office in a really funny contrast to his hi-tech self.

 The Wicked and the Divine #8
by Brandon Graham

Graham's fluid, flat style is perfect for this book, and really gets across a youthfulness and a kind of east-meets-west look that parallels the worldwide phenomenon that this series chronicles.

 Daredevil #13
by Chris Samnee

I really love the concept here, and it's executed absolutely perfectly. Haven't seen a bad cover from Samnee yet!
Curb Stomp #1
by Tula Lotay

I love it when a new book can introduce us to the world or its characters through the cover, and Lotay does that wonderfully here. There's a lot of personality drawn into each of these characters, and certainly makes me interested in learning more!

 Roche Limit #5
by Vic Malhotra

Malhotra is still kicking ass on these expertly designed covers. The color design here is especially interesting and unique, and I love the cartooning of the figures inside the highly geometric background.

Sex #20
by Piotr Kowalski

The color palette says it all here. However, I always enjoy the way the title design changes from month to month, and this one in particular really works well with the image it's a part of.

  The Black Hood #1
by David Mack

I like the clever way Mack visually represents how the shadow of the hood looms overhead while maintaining a strong sense of design.  

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