Cover Comments November 2013 – DC and Dark Horse Edition

Welcome to cover comments! A monthly feature where we break down what we think are the best and worst covers the month has to offer.

Overall, it was a meh experience since most of the covers were neither terrible or great. That doesn’t mean I’d have an empty list! onward with the cover comments…

[DC COMICS]

BATWOMAN #25

Batwoman 25

GOR-GEOUS. I love J.H. Williams so much and this cover is STUNNING. I don’t read Batwoman but I can tell you that I’ll miss Williams on the book for this very reason. Since Williams was taken off the series at issue 25 rather than 27, I’m not sure if this’ll be the cover used but it gets a win regardless. A++++

BATGIRL #25

Batgirl 25

Ever since Alex Garner has been drawing the covers of Batgirl, I’ve been salivating at it’s beauty. I can say for a fact that this is probably the most gorgeous and stand out cover that DC has in the entire month of November aside from J.H. Williams’ Batwoman. Good job.

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #7

Adventures of Superman 7

I love this cover so much mostly because of the contrast between Superman and the train. Superman is drawn in this classic, Fleischer-esque style while the train is far more advance with it’s slow motion/blurring effect. Sometimes, harking it back old school can create a warm fuzzy feeling that’ll in turn make a stand out cover.

BIRDS OF PREY #25

Bird of Preys 25

This cover could have easily made it on my “hell yes” list if it wasn’t for that mouth. I don’t know why but that mouth looks so odd on someone engaging in a fight. it looks more like a “what’s going on….” mouth than a “hiiiii-yah” mouth. It’s distracting. Otherwise, I adore the color scheme. It’s so different and if it wasn’t for that awkward mouth, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

SUICIDE SQUAD #25

No. I refuse. Quite possibly the only cover that I’d cool terrible including both DC and Dark Horse.

No….

[DARK HORSE COMICS]

Ghost #1

Ghost #1

I like the color scheme and I like how this character is drawn. Not AH-MAZING but it’s pretty good.

The Occultist #2

This is the second time Occultist got onto Cover Comments for the right reasons. Gorgeous looking cover. The richness of the colors are amazing and I’d buy this without having to know what it is (assuming I have cash to burn which I don’t sadly).

X #7

X_7

I like this cover because of the texture. I do enjoy seeing paint being used as a medium (assuming this is paint which i think it is) because it offers this depth to the art and you can get these cool effects with it too. Again, not an amazing cover but it was definitely one of the better ones over at Dark Horse.

I’m a bit disappointed with Dark Horse and DC in terms of covers. Hell, I’d even take really bad ones just so I’d have SOME THING to discuss. Maybe Christa will have a better time with Image and Marvel…
