Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 74

Trees #9
by Jason Howard

I really love how Saul Bass this cover looks. The extended arm has a sort of 60's cartoonish look, but as you follow it down it becomes more and more sinister.

 Planet Hulk #1
by Mukesh Singh

This one has a pretty high fun-factor for starters, but the color, perspective, and and sense of action put it over the top!

 Bloodshot Reborn #2
by Marguerite Sauvage

I love the mood and look of this cover; it's like a candid photo where things felt fine, but there's an ominous sense of being surrounded by the red grass and sky.

 A-Force #1
by Jim Cheung

After reading G. Willow Wilson's wonderful response to The New Yorker's trashing of this cover, I felt it was important to include. It's a cover with many of the women of the Marvel U, and yet none are stuck in improbable and objectified poses. Sad that this is something to celebrate, but a step in the right direction is a step in the right direction.
Satellite Sam #14
by Howard Chaykin

It's not often that we get great black and white covers, and here we have the absolute master of black and white giving us an image who's story is just begging to be told.

 Secret Wars: Battleworld #1
by James Stokoe

Okay: this is a bunch of Marvel characters re-imagined as M.O.D.O.K.s drawn by James friggin' Stokoe...got it?

 Convergence: Adventures of Superman #2
by Mikel Janin

The facial cartooning here is very nice, but my two favorite things about this cover are the fantastic colors (and their contrast) and the abundance of apes–we all know that more apes=more sales, right?

 Shutter #12
by Leila del Duca

The framing is really well done and adds to the incredibly creepy tone of this cover. I love how del Duca's achieved a surreal melding of cloth and wax in the creature here.

 Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman #10
by Michael Zulli

I really like the texture here–we don't get very many covers that feel like this. Also, the war-weary expression on Wonder Woman's face really tells a story. 

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