Best Covers of the Week, Vol. 145

Action Comics #964
by Clay Mann

This combines the patterned backdrop, simple art-deco architecture at the bottom, and a complex visual idea to make a very striking cover with a lot of interesting depth.

 Adventure Time Comics #3
by Phillip Light

This cover has a beautiful amount of colorful detail despite the 2d-ness of the perspective. Each time I look at it I spot something else!

 Batgirl #3
by Rafael Albuquerque

Gorgeous stylings by the ever-talented Albuquerque, and a unique perspective that adds depth despite the abstract, minimalist background.

Descender #15
by Dustin Nguyen

Nguyen is always awesome, but his cartooning skills have really skyrocketed in the last few years. There's a ton of personality in his subjects here.

 Island #11
by Johnnie Christmas

Everything here, from the greeny leaves at the top along with the scrawled writing to the pouring lava dripping into nothingness, creates an unforgettable cover with lots of lovely details.

 Josie and the Pussycats #1
by Francesco Francavilla

Francavilla was born to do this kind of retro music cover. The layout is unique and exciting, and the color choice is spot on.

  Josie and the Pussycats #1
by Veronica Fish

This captures the genesis of a garageband to a T! The magic of having to get the music out, even if you don't have an instrument to play (or know how to play it), is portrayed perfectly here.

The Hunt #3
 by Colin Lorimer

Lorimer really nails a very specific, fantasy tone here that is pretty impressive. I love the commitment to the color scheme, too.

Wayward #16
 by Karmome Shirahama

Shirahama is able to inject lots of depth and character into an image that otherwise might not have a story to tell. Nicely done!

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