Red Sonja #6
by Marguerite Sauvage
This has the air of a classic fantasy illustration, and this novel cover approach is aided by the simple line border that adds a great amount of depth.
Scarlet Witch #7
by June Brigman
I love the unique look and texture that this cover exudes, and the way it uses classic comics to add to that texture.
Divinity II #3
by Andrew Pepoy
An unconventional choice to use the wonderful Archie style art of Pepoy on such a dramatic series, but it pays off–the contrast works very nicely and is fun as hell!
Dept. H #3
by Matt Kindt and Sharlene Kindt
The Kindts create something that is minimalistic and depressing, and does a nice job creating a disorienting sense of weight that nails the tone of the series.
Cry Havoc #6
by Sean Phillips
I like that they've stuck with the central numeric concept for the b-covers on Cry Havok, and Phillips does something especially interesting with the idea.
Black Road #3
by Garry Brown
The color palette and cartooning are eye-catching and really set a cold, frightening tone for this book.
Bitch Planet #8
by Valentine De Landro
These propaganda poster covers are always pretty excellent, but I absolutely love the idea and execution here, just perfect!
