Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 114

 Astonishing Ant-Man #5
by Michael Cho

Starting off with your weekly dose of the fantastic Michael Cho! As with all of these, a really great but exceedingly simple concept that makes nice use of negative space for the title.
 
 Daredevil #4
by Ron Garney

I love the sense of action here and the way it really takes advantage of the natural verticality of a comic cover to make a contrast between the hot explosion on the left and the cold blue of the right.
 
 Dark Knight III: The Master Race #3
by Greg Capullo

This cover is really creepy for starters, but I really like the sense of depth too; the way the smoke trails through the Joker's arms makes it really feel like he's coming right towards you.
 
 The Goddamned #3
by R.M. Guera

For a book full of muddy, rotting settings, I'm continually blown away by the way Guera uses beautifully unique neon colors to really make these covers stand out.
 
 Hellboy and B.P.R.D. 1953: Beyond the Fences #1
by Paolo Rivera

The Norman Rockwell look here is absolutely perfect, and it's just wonderfully designed overall.
 
 Judge Dredd #3
by Ulises Farinas

Farinas is sky-rocketing up the list of great artists with his detailed, wild look, and this cover is a great example of what his awesome style can accomplish.
 
 Saga #34
by Fiona Staples

I could stare at this cover all day. Staples is easily the front-runner in showing what a purely digital process can be capable of, and this cover is a gorgeous example.
 
 We Are Robin #9
by Lee Bermejo

Nothing like a really gross close-up to accentuate how creepy his existence is. This one is sure to catch a lot of eyes on the shelf.
 
X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever #1
by Michael Walsh

I really love how at first glance this looks like just a very nice version of the classic call-to-action superhero cover, but looking closer to see the main character cowering in his ill-fitting X-Men costume brings in such a nice and funny contrast.


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