Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 124

 4001AD #1
by Ryan Bodenheim

The way this plays with scale is pretty excellent, and I love all the curves in both the image and the title design.
 A-Force #5
by Ben Caldwell

Great character designs and crisp line work. There's a lot of attention given to each individual character here, so it feels more interesting than your typical team lineup.
 Amazing Forest #5
by Ulises Farinas

I love how Farinas takes the kind of infograph design that people eat up and makes a fake one just for a fun visual. Really eye catching and fun to dig into!
 Detective Comics #52
by Francis Manapul

I could've picked this one just for the nostalgia it brought–remember when this original cover was something to maybe be excited about? But in all seriousness, I can't resist good Manapul, down to his excellent shading style.
 Moon Knight #2
by Greg Smallwood

Very cool, mysterious design here, and the use of purple overlay is really interesting.
 The Punisher #1
by Declan Shalvey

This kind of design has been popular lately, but in Shalvey's capable hands it becomes a bit of a cartooning marvel. He is able to show so much through just a slit of the eyes, and great shading that fades the skull into the void.
 Revival #39
by Jenny Frison

I wanted to highlight this one for the amount of range Frison has. This is a totally different style than her usual work, but has the same elegant line work and facial cartooning.
Scarlet Witch #6
by David Aja

Aja's stuff is going up in museums everywhere in ten years. We all know it. Buy his covers now before they're fine art!

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