Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 88

Hank Johnson, Agent of Hydra #1
by Michael Walsh

There's so much to love here–the classic, minimalistic style; the trouble-on-both-sides motif; and the posture of Hank himself. Awesome!

 Book of Death: The Fall of Ninjak #1
by Kano

Kano's got great style–the color and design here are really nice, leaving you at first to wonder what's more threatening, the arrows or the menacing red in between.

 New MGMT #1
by Geoff Darrow

It's fitting that the last issue of such a monumental series should have a pretty giant guest artist variant in Geoff Darrow. This one is satisfying and fun as hell!

 Sons of the Devil #3
by Toni Infante

There's something very cool and intriguing about this one...almost like it's a snapshot of a moment in a movie. I like the monotone use of color and the orange sky, the low angle perspective, and the always fantastic type design!

 We Are Robin #3
by Sean Murphy

Yellow backgrounds always make for eye-catching covers, but the character work here is really wonderful. Add to that the grungy detail and interesting circular shading and you've got something really interesting!

 Batman '66 #26
by Mike Allred

Speaking of eye-catching color...Allred could draw a whole series involving Poison Ivy subduing the Dynamic Duo and I would subscribe in a heartbeat!

 Fight Club 2 #4
by David Mack

Mack's work is unparalleled, totally unique, and absolutely gorgeous. The combination of impressionistic watercolors that also seem somehow a bit photo realistic and actual lace make this one pretty stellar.

 Hellboy in Hell #7
by Mike Mignola

I like the color and gradient background here, but what's especially interesting is the look of the character; at first, he looks more or less normal, but to see Hellboy's skeleton draped with his usual outfit is pretty haunting.

 Pastaways #6
by Scott Kolins

This cover is bold in its design, full of rich detail, and creepy to boot. For a cover with no background, it's also got a lot of depth–it almost feels like he's going to fall forward right out of the cover.

 Dead Drop #4
by Raul Allen

Allen's designs are always striking and clever, and this one is no less so. I especially dig that the title is designed right into the image!

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