Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 71

Convergence: Shazam #1
by Doc Shaner

There are few that can nail this vibe as well as Shaner. Everything from the cartooning to the shading to the coloring are perfect here!

 Convergence: Justice Society of America #1
by Dan Panosian

This one just oozes classic style in a way I can't resist. This recalls Miller in some ways, and the coloring here is superb!

 Rumble #5
by James Harren

The overall color on this cover is really fantastic and striking. I love that the title almost blends into the flames, and the framing of the character really brings a lot of depth to the image.

 Convergence #4
by Francis Manapul

It's always great to see Manapul's unique style put to use, and I love the way he plays with the shadows on the Statue of Liberty, used perfectly in tandem with Kamandi here.

 Outcast #8
by Paul Azaceta

What a gorgeous cover! The framing is nice and gives us an eerie feel despite the mundane setting, and the water reflections only add to this. Wonderful colors too.

Multiversity #2
by Mike Allred

Oh, Mike Allred. This one is super fun and has a real classic feel to it, and I can't help but feel that the inclusion of a bald man front and center with Ultra Comics is bringing the series scribe into the story himself...

 They're Not Like Us #5
by Simon Gane

I've loved the aesthetic of these covers that also function as a first page from the very beginning, and this is one of Gane's best. The frame draws you into the intriguing mystery of the soft glowing fire in the night.
Convergence: Infinity Inc. #1
by Ben Caldwell

Coming from the artist on the new Bat-Mite book, I really dig the style and layout here. It's got a touch of Allred-ness in the faces, but the eerie floating design is all Caldwell. 

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