Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 86

Descender #6
by Dustin Nguyen

This one is an interesting composition, and utilizes all of Nguyen's considerable skills. Great complex technology illustration and emotional cartooning that tells a story.

 ODY-C #6
by Christian Ward

Ward is probably the best at crazy psychedelic illustration, and this is my favorite he's done in a while. Weird, sexy, and far out, man.

 The Beauty #1
by Jeremy Haun

An absolutely haunting image, beautifully designed and creepy as all get out!

 Mandrake the Magician #3
by Declan Shalvey

This one is a simple, but perfectly designed cover. The bold but minimalistic color choice really makes it stand out.

 Planet Hulk #4
by Mike Del Mundo

Del Mundo is a long time favorite here, for obviously reasons. Yet another great concept, and a ton of visual depth.

 Amazing Spider-Man #20.1
by Yasmine Putri

Putri has been impressing the hell out of me lately–her covers always show an incredible amount of depth and unique perspective, along with great color design and shading.

 Constantine the Hellblazer #3
by Riley Rossmo

This week is really full of an interesting use of perspective, for whatever reason. This one uses it to provide metaphorical size and threat to a character in a very cool way.
Swords of Sorrow #4
by Tula Lotay

The color and layout of this cover are pretty exceptional; what could have felt cluttered instead feels very deliberate and provides a lot of distance between the background and foreground.

 Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #1
by Jamie McKelvie

What, you thought I forgot? Of course I have to include the phenomenally designed cover that perfectly encapsulates a style of days long past. Beautiful! 

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