Aloha, Hawaiian Dick
by Sean K. Dove
I love the tropical stylings here, and the depth that the shadows in the water bring. Nicely done!
Captain Marvel #4
by Kris Anka
Anka's stuff is just wonderful, and here we get to see his design sense blended with action that fills every part of the frame. Impressive to see how much depth and movement can be accomplished with little shading!
Criminal 10th Anniversary Special #1
by Sean Phillips
This is the kind of thing Phillips does best–a moody snapshot that feels both posed and very alive.
Dragon Age: Magekiller #5
by Sachin Teng
Teng's style is pretty excellent, and is on full display here. I love how rounded and smooth everything feels despite the heat of battle.
Fourth Planet #1
by Miko Maciaszek
This cover recalls great classic sci-fi illustrated covers. I love the undefined round frame and the careful, subtle color work.
James Bond #6
by Dom Reardon
The blood-red water obviously makes a bold impression here, but it is the tiny scale of the action happening on board the ship that really makes this one exciting.
by David Aja
Aja is the master of capturing the essense of a character through purely design elements–there is no story, no posing, just pure illustration that gets across the idea of the titular character perfectly.
Star Trek: Starfleet Academy #5
by Derek Charm
The color work here is excellent, and I love that it uses both the new characters in this book as well as iconic Star Trek imagery to create an exciting, retro-themed image.
Superman: American Alien #6
by Jonathan Case
Great cartooning here on both the Superman wall art and the foreground character's body language.
