What an incredibly powerful and upsetting cover that captures simply and effectively one of the biggest problems with race in modern times.
(Note: I could not find a high quality version of the 'uncensored' cover that uses a much more offensive word to describe the post-Civil War black man, but I encourage readers to seek it out.)

Nguyen has a great eye for framing and design, but it's his watery but well-defined color that really makes a cover like this really stand out.
Green Valley #3
by Guiseppe Camuncoli and Cliff Rathburn
While this cover may at first glance look short on "art," I think the design and typography are quite fantastic. There's a level of detail in the image border and type design that's really impressive and eye-catching despite the fact that there are no characters present.
Jim Thompson's The Killer Inside of Me #4
by Vic Malhotra
Malhotra does an excellent job at capturing a bold pulp look that captures the sexuality and fatalism of film noir without using the cliche shadowing.
by Tony Parker
This one is a really phenomenal crime cover with a classic design and excellent color. Love it!
We often see comic covers use the image to partially obscure the title, but this takes it to another level with the image distorting the title and bringing it into the universe of the image.
New Super-Man #6
by Bernard Chang
I love the unique look, the empty speech bubbles, the bold coloring–pretty much everything about this cover!
