Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 96

Justice League #45
by Francis Manapul

I really dig this one–it's got the classic Kirby geometric designs, a serious sense of depth, great characterization, and a phenomenally neon color palette!

 Tokyo Ghost #2
by Sean Murphy

One of the most unique experiments with perspective I've seen on a cover. To me, if a cover has you tilting your head to try and explore it visually, then the artist has put together something really special.

 Weirdworld #5
by Mike Del Mundo

This is such a wonderful homage to classic Conan-style covers, but the real kicker here is the outrageous use of color that the image is literally dripping with.

 Doctor Fate #5
by Sonny Liew

This is what happens when you give a superhero book to a really talented indie comic artist. Such a unique feel and an exciting approach!

 The Steam Man #1
by Piotr Kowalski

I love this one for it's level of detail in recreating classic monster illustrations, but it's also impressive when considering Kowalski's work on Sex looks nothing like this.

 The Beauty #3
by Christopher Mitten

A really interesting use of painterly techniques–at first glance it just looks like a rip or swath of random paint until you realize there's a figure standing out from the background.

 Black Canary #5
by Mike Allred

Allred doing classic green zombies eating brains like movie theater popcorn? Can't get much better than that.

 The Shield #1
by Andrew Robinson

I really love the strong pose and dramatic framing on this one; rather than feeling staged and generic, it has a real sense of power.

 Wolf #4
by Matt Taylor

What an insane sense of depth this cover has, especially considering the monochromatic look!

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