Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 115

 Batgirl #49
by Babs Tarr

 There's so much going on conceptually with this cover, from the unraveling to the bursting flowers to the abstract geometric ideas. A lot to visually dig into!
 
 Black Widow #1
by Phil Noto

I love this hip-hop variant–really captures the tone of the original, and has a great sense of perspective, not to mention Noto's great cartooning on the face!
 
 Black Widow #1
by Tula Lotay

The best of Lotay's many nice variants this week, this one nicely uses vertical space and provides cool design-y elements in the bottom to round it out.
 
 Johnny Red #1
by Keith Burns

I love how this cover uses the angle of the title to give a sense of tilt to the image even when the ground is pretty level. Really gives a feeling of falling over, of unstoppable movement.
 
 Predator: Life and Death #1
by Sachin Teng

Conceptually one of the coolest covers of the week–a very clever way to visually combine the iconography of both Predator and Alien into one badass image.
 
 The Sheriff of Babylon #4
by John Paul Leon

Again another fantastic cover from this series. I love how the street scene is colored to seem like flowers, suggesting something beautiful behind the everyday, and the way the figure lines up perfectly with it's edges, almost making her another building rising in the background.
 
 The Discipline #1
by Leandro Fernández

Very nice horror work on this one, and I love the very subdued palette of light blues and white; reminiscent of the blood draining from skin in a scary situation.
 
Unfollow #5
by Matt Taylor

An extremely clever conceptual use of the phone as a weapon that perfectly encapsulates this series.


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