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.
I am really digging what’s going on with the various Superman covers this month. So eye catching. But two definitely stood out as especially awesome.
Action Comics #28
I just love what they’ve done with the titles and the old fashioned look to Action Comics. They look classic but with an edge.
As always I adore the Batwing covers. The colours are so unique and pop right off the page.
Talk about jumping out at you. The painted cover, the dark shadows, Batgirl as a vampire…I need this comic! It’s dark and disturbing and different from what you normally see on Bat-books.
Sandman Overture #2
We may have lost J H William’s gorgeous art on Batwoman but at least there is still Sandman. And in Sandman he can let his creative flag fly. There is so much going on in this cover, I’m curious to know what every little bit represents even though I have read the main Sandman series.
Creepy Comics #15
This was probably my least favourite cover of the month. Not because the art is bad. The art is fine. But it’s just so silly. What she’s just running around the jungle naked but yet ready to kill things? And if she doesn’t care what she’s wearing why even bother with that stupid strip of clothing that covers nothing? But of course Jungle Women still have time to style their hair.
Tomb Raider #1
If the last cover was an example of what not to do, this is an example of them getting it right. Lara Croft looks bad ass here! She’s wearing logical clothing, she has not one but two weapons, she is not looking over her shoulder so that her butt is the first thing we see, and despite being wounded she is not depicted as “in distress.” Love everything about this.
Mind MGMT #19
I always love the art in Min MGMT but the last few month’s I’ve found the covers kind of blah. This feels like a return to the truly bizarre nature that is this series.
I love the mixture of styles going on here – from the fluidity to the red cloak to the neon sign reflection of his adversary. I’m not familiar with this series but this cover makes me want to dive in.
Star Wars #14
Favourite Dark Horse cover of the month. Just gorgeous. (Plus I’m such a Darth Vader fangirl). I bet it looks even more amazing in print.
Looks like we had better luck this month with DC & Dark Horse titles than we did back in November. Which ones were your favourites?
