Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 129

 Constantine the Hellblazer #13
by Riley Rossmo

I find the framing, both in position and in strong color contrast, really striking in a way that makes this one really stand out.
 Faster Than Light #7
by Brian Haberlin

This one begins a theme this week: covers that have strange concepts and eye-catching designs that really pique my curiosity. I love the surreal contrast of the astronaut in water with an umbrella, and the bold red of the umbrella augments this strangeness.
 House of Penance #3
by Ian Bertram

This cover is a bit disturbing, but what really stands out is the surprising depth that Bertram accomplishes with just two characters and their features.
 Howard the Duck #8
by Dustin Nguyen

I've been a fan of Nguyen's work for a long time, and it's exciting to see him put together such a fun cover. His style has evolved a lot from his chibi covers, and this one just exudes classic comic book cover fun.
 Roche Limit: Monadic #3
by Kyle Charles

I've always loved the framing devices on this series' covers, but here it's the complexity and beauty of the reflection that sets this one apart. Any cover that rewards 
 Star Wars: Poe Dameron #3
by Michael Walsh

Walsh has created something that looks unlike anything in any Star Wars movie, but works so well. I love the deep blues that are rarely seen in comics.
 The Vision #8
by Mike Del Mundo

Del Mundo is still the king of cover concepts, and nails it again here. It gets the weird suburban tone of the book and manages to bring down the superpowered, high flying Avengers characters down to that grounded level with the unique perspective.
 Voracious #4
by John McRea

Here's another one that is just so strange and unique that it demands to be looked at. It also manages to show a bit of what this book is about through the (almost) purely visual.
Wolf #8
by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

I really like the purposely sloppy multitude of angles here, from the tilt of the frame, the title, the Image logo, and the credits. It really amps up the tension and creates a sense of anxiety.

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