Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 128

 4001AD #2
by Clayton Crain

I really dig the epic feel of this cover–the design elements and darkness of the top contrast nicely with the soft light glowing around the Earth, and I like how the smoke from the jet almost looks like continents being shattered by the force of the propulsion.
 Control #1
by Ben Oliver

I like the idea of just using a few sparse object elements to spell out the tone and story of a book, and it's done well here, but my favorite bit is the design of the title, with the placement grey box for the credits–very nice!
 The Goddamned #4
by R. M. Guera

I continue to adore the color palette of these covers, but it's the framing using the bloody axe that really sets this one over.
 Last Gang in Town #6
by Rob Davis

I'm not sure I've ever seen the punk aesthetic applied to this kind of outer space scene, but I definitely need more!
 The Revisionist #1
by Matt Tyler

The minimalist design of the man falling into the vortex, combined with the radial, almost globe-like lines radiating, and the clock design around the title (with the "1" being highlighted as a nice touch for the first issue) all make this a very well conceived cover.
 Spider-Woman #8
by Robbi Rodriguez

Although a little jokier than I'm used to for this series, I can't help but love the concept and it's really fun execution here.
Unfollow #8
by Matt Taylor

Excellent action design that is quite dense, but draws the eye to the central character who seems disinterested in the chaos around him. 

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