Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 132

 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank #2
by Tyler Boss

The 80's video game case feel here is chock full of authentic nostalgia goodness. Great color design too!
 Dark Knight III: The Master Race #5
by Karl Kerschl

I thought I was really sick of these Dark Knight Returns themed variants, but damn if Kerschl didn't find a unique perspective that really captures the essence of that book and Carrie Kelly. Love it!
 Judge Dredd #7
by Ulises Farinas

IDW made a smart choice in utilizing Farinas all over the place–his conceptual and design talents are through the roof. This one is a simple idea, but is rich with depth on closer inspection.
 Lobster Johnson: Metal Monsters of Midtown #2
by Tonci Zonjic

Zonjic captures the retro tech feel that the Hellboy universe is rich with; the weird scuba design and foggy background tech make for a very fun, moody cover.
 The Rocketeer at War #4
by Dave Bullock

Nobody pulls off WWII era action pinups the way Bullock can. This one is so ultra crisp and perfectly captures a sense of speed and distance that few others can muster.
 Spider-Gwen Annual #1
by Robbi Rodriguez

The character-within-their-silhouette thing is beginning to be played out, but Rodriguez uses it in an interesting way with subtle softness on the inside that makes the character sit outside of it all. Well done!
 Starve #10
by Danijel Zezelj

I love when a cover has the ability to surprise me with something new each time I look at it, and Zezelj has done exactly that with this densely designed and stylish cover.
 Transformers VS GI Joe #13
by Tom Scioli

You don't get much more fun than a classic face-off style cover, especially when Scioli is at the helm. Lots to love here!
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #9
by Erica Henderson

Cross-sections fall under the same category of super-fun that Scioli's cover above does. Henderson does a phenomenal job telling a fun, action-oriented story with just a few slices here, and with eye-catching color as well!

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