Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 136

 Batgirl #1
by Francis Manapul

Manapul has a way of creating covers that engage with the iconic nature of a character while looking utterly modern and exciting, and this one is no different.

 Detective Comics #937
by Rafael Albuquerque

This seems to be Albuquerque actually taking a page out of the Manapul playbook ironically, using bold, simple color backgrounds and integrated text titles. I like the depth and angles created by the two subjects and the titles as well.

 Drifter #13
by Nic Klein

This cover just exudes a fierce anger, from the excellent facial cartooning to the fiery coloring outside of her and the digital color glitches that run on the outer edges.

 Harley Quinn #30
by Amanda Conner

Conner gets Harley Quinn in a way that few artists get characters that they didn't create. This one is destined to be one of the iconic Harley Quinn images that we'll see on posters and stickers for years to come.

ROM #1
by J.H. Williams III

This to me is Williams showing off his range. While the creates in the background (and invading the foreground) have the kind of painterly texture that we're used to seeing in a Williams composition, the central figure is much smoother and almost digitally cleaner, which creates a nice contrast.

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