The color in this cover is absolutely phenomenal, but there's a whole lot to love here. I like that the title is obstructed by buildings, and that the credits are in the center, which make it somehow ominous. The whole look here is pretty spectacular.

Caldwell continues to do some of the best work of his career here. The color contrast is nice, but even better is the contrast between her peace-signing entrance and the soldiers walking in front of her with sponsorship on their helmets.
Stray Bullets #6
by David Lapham
I really like this one because I think it highlights one of the best things about this series: the weird mixture of adolescent fantasy and extremely brutal reality. The plan here looks like it was drawn by an eight-year-old, but the details ("buy coke," "knock out stripper") are ridiculously adult.
Sons of the Devil #3
by Cliff Chiang
I really like the way the perspective gives the demon a body in the alleyway, but it's the scale and color here that really make this stand out.
by Mike del Mundo
Del Mundo has a wonderful way of meshing together a ton of elements, but making it feel organic and very fluid, and this cover perfectly embodies that talent!
by Javier Rodriguez
I really love the idea and depth in this one: we've got Spider-Woman pulling the classic heroic pose in the center foreground, while in the background is just a silly squabble over directions.
We Are Robin #2
by Lee Bermejo
Bermejo has created a really interesting stylistic template for these covers, with his signature super shaded style retouched with monotone color accents. I dig it!
Archie vs. Predator #4
by Joe Quinones
This has got to be one of only a handful of covers that has ever made me laugh out loud. Exceptionally clever, and the execution is just perfect. Poster please!
The Fly: Outbreak #4
by Robert Hack
Hack has got this thing going across multiple publishers now! Great illustration and design work, but what put me over was the quote at the top–too awesome.
