Something in the way she moves / Attracts me like no other cover. / Something in the way she woos me.
Don’t lie. You would eat at this establishment every day if it was just off your airstrip. No bones about it. Beyond the amazing architecture, I’m tickled by the notion that Cliff is posing for some kind of photograph here.
Archangel has assembled quite the malevolent posse here. Another fine example of Ribic’s mastery of Chiaroscuro or bold, dramatic lighting.

Francavilla’s covers are popping up all over the place, and seeing his take on each additional title and character is a true delight. He seems especially well suited here, depicting a fallen Thark warrior amidst the crags of old Barsoom. But what puts this one over the top are those pitch perfect hand-lettered logos. Give me this over the nonsense that’s made Marvel notorious, any day of the week. But especially Wednesday. That’s when comics come out.
