The best covers and the rust-beetles scuttled among the nettles of the sage thicket. “Vámonos, amigos,” he whispered, and threw the busted leather flintcraw over the loose weave of the saddlecock. And they rode on in the friscalating dusklight.
Wonder Woman #21
Cover by Cliff Chiang
Perhaps you know my fondness for concentric circles. Perhaps you share it. While I’m excited for the prospect of Diana’s destination in this image (New Genesis, motherboxers!) the journey is nearly as riveting. It’s a testament of Chiang’s powers that Wonder Woman retains her dignity even with an airborne tiara and a mild case of roller coaster face.
Cover by JH Williams III
Can’t say as I’ve ever encountered an elegant Killer Croc showcase before, but damn if this isn’t a classy depiction of the steward of the sewers. Not that he’s toothless either. See? Fangs. Love the play of color on black and white, the illusion of layers and reliefs.
Cover by Jenny Frison
When’s the last time you were throttled by a cover? Excepting the assaultive movie banners and logos and do-dads on a Big Two cover, I mean?
The Sixth Gun #32
Cover by Brian Hurtt
This is a lovely, evocative departure from the series’ typical cover treatment which usually depicts two or three different scenes. I like the confidence in obscuring the title logo and what that does psychologically. Our hero is journeying off the beaten path and into the unknown. We’re invited to lose ourselves right along with her.
