Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 89

8House #3
by Xurxo G. Penalta
 
The level of detail here is simply superb, and the contrast in color is really nice. This one is about as intriguing as covers get!


The Dark Tower: The Drawing of Three: The Lady of Shadows #1
by Nimit Malavia

While it also wins the award for most unnecessarily long title, this cover is pretty fantastic. It’s gory and unnervingly erotic, with a lot of interesting design elements going on. Certainly one of the most eye-catching on stands this week.






Aliens Vampirella #1
by Gabriel Hardman

Hartman is really excellent at riding a fine line between realism and impressionism, and it makes for a seriously cool cover here. The perspective also lends the image a sense of being immense!
 
Dark Corridor #2
by Rich Tommaso

I love when a cover takes this sort of classic approach, opting to sort of tell a story in silent montage style. Gorgeous and wonderful!
 
Detective Comics #44
by Cliff Chiang

Oh my God, who would not read this ongoing series? The retro style, framing, and beautiful colors make this one a shoe-in, and one of my favorites of the year so far!
 





Material #4
by Tom Muller
 
Material and Muller continue to put out some of the most unique covers in comics today. This one evokes such a strong sense of animal rage; interesting to stress a tone or mood rather than a preview of events in the story.



Miracle man by Gaiman and Buckingham #1
by Mark Buckingham
 
This is just so beautiful! So many wonderful elements, from the fantastic design and layout, the mixed media 3d bit that adds depth, the typography…really well done.

Plutona #1
by Emi Lenox
Lenox has a style that is very complementary to Lemire’s, which should make this series quite interesting. But the cover: the character work is very nice, and the purple watercolor background really adds a sense of ominous mystery to the scene.

Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #3
by Yasmine Putri
 
This one is about as fun as they come. From the Earth-as-a-bomb concept to the great facial cartooning to the exaggerative exclamation points, it pops with sensationalism.



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